EA has a triple-A “multiplayer action game” in the cooker, a job posting on LinkedIn reveals (via). The listing doesn’t namedrop the title but does say the position (Lead Network Engineer) is located at the publishing giant’s Los Angeles offices.
EALA is known to be working on Mercs Inc. (working title) — a multiplayer-focused follow-up to Pandemic’s Mercenaries series — which was announced late last year after a minute-long gameplay demo video (here) of it surfaced. Could be it, or could be something completely new. Time will tell.
