Even though Pandemic Studios as we know it has been closed with some employees going out with a bang, EA appears to want to keep the Pandemic brand alive at its new home in EA Los Angeles. Announced today by Pandemic, “a division of EA,” is a new game in the Mercenaries series, Mercs Inc (working title), which at the time is in early stages of development.
The announcement comes a day after a video (below) apparently showing the series’ new multiplayer focus made its way to the web, making me think EA wanted to clear up any misleading reports of the development on the game being shut down along with Pandemic. Message. Received.
