During yesterday’s EA earnings conference call – following the release of Q2 financials – CEO John Riccitiello revealed that, thus far, Mercenaries 2 has moved 1.9 million copies — meaning that the highly explosive, Mohawk-sporting take on the GTA formula probably won’t be coming to a halt any time soon.
Riccitiello felt the newly christened word “sequelable” could be slapped on the Mercenaries franchise, so Mercenaries 3 is virtually confirmed. Oh, and Mercenaries 10, as well, apparently. Yes, he actually said that.
EA’s making fire and explosions predictable – mundane, even. Please Lord, just end it all now.
