[IMGW]http://media.1up.com/media?id=3182511[/IMGW]Like Assassin's Creed before it, no one realistically expects Mercenaries 2: World in Flames to remain a PlayStation 3 exclusive. Who knows why Pandemic Studios is keeping the Xbox 360 version under wraps, but instead of being forward, they're actively avoiding commenting, as evidenced in a recent interview with Eurogamer on choosing to co-publish with Electronic Arts.

Eurogamer slipped in a rather cleverly worded question meant to out Pandemic on any work they're producing on Xbox 360, but their response remained vague and neutral. And boring.
Eurogamer: How is the next-gen development going? Which platform are you finding easier to work with?

Pandemic: It's going well. It's taken a lot of effort to build a game this big, but we're incredibly excited by all of the things we're able to let the player do and the visceral thrills you get from all of the next generation chaos and destruction.

Still, it's a bit telling, nonetheless. They didn't outline an Xbox 360 version, but they didn't announce PS3 exclusivity, either. The impatient wait continues.
