Pandemic Delays Mercenaries 2 Until 2008

Ubisoft first pushed one highly anticipated game into 2008: they were forced to delay Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway, and now, EA and Pandemic are doing the same thing with Mercenaries 2: World in Flames. Initially expected to arrive later this year, the publisher is now listing the freedom-oriented action title - developed by Pandemic Studios - with a "Q1 2008" release date.

"We're not adding new features or content at this point," a Pandemic official told GameSpot. "We are using the extra time to make sure that the game is 100 percent polished and truly shines as the best next-gen, open-world experience on any gaming system to date."

The original Mercenaries debuted in 2005 on the Xbox and PS2, and most gamers very much enjoyed that open-ended, "hunt-'em-and-slay'em" format. This same style will make a return in the sequel, although it won't be taking place in North Korea; the new location is Venezuela; a country torn apart by civil war in the near future. Without any doubt, Mercenaries 2: World in Flames is gonna deliver the non-stop action in spades, and you get to choose how most of that action occurs! We just have to wait until next year.
