[IMGW]http://media.1up.com/media?id=3182511[/IMGW]Pandemic Studios has been demoing and teasing Mercenaries 2: World in Flames for almost a year now, but they've skated around confirming a publisher for the follow-up the whole time. LucasArts, who handled the original, couldn't nail them down for the sequel, apparently. Still, today the news is moot, as Electronic Arts revealed themselves as the co-publisher of the game -- Pandemic will be taking a hands-on approach this time.

The press release only makes mention of the in-development PlayStation 3 version of the game, though, like Assassin's Creed and Unreal Tournament 3 and basically every third party title this generation, an Xbox 360 version is expected -- eventually.
