EA boss John Riccitielo is the latest company bigwig talking up more sequels (http://www.joystiq.com/2008/10/23/ea-dead-space-army-of-two-bad-company-sequels-in-the-works/), just as his publishing megalith struck gold (http://www.joystiq.com/2008/10/14/metareview-dead-space-xbox-360-ps3/) with Dead Space (http://www.joystiq.com/tag/dead-space), one of the best original titles it's had in years. This time it's Mercenaries, which Riccitielo confirmed will see a third installment developed by series creator Pandemic.

"There will be a Mercenaries 3," Riccitielo said during an investor call, adding, "and, if I have anything to do with it, there will be a Mercenaries 10." With nearly two million copies sold worldwide, a sequel to the open-world action game was a given ... but another seven beyond that? Mattias will be 'jacking other residents' wheelchairs at the mercenary retirement home by that point.

Lets hope that the 3rd is better than the 2nd. The 2nd one is pretty bad and didn't feel anywhere near as good as the 1st one did. Mercs 2 felt rushed and the bugs in the game are proof of that.

I haven't played the 2nd, but I've heard that its a pretty crapy game, maybe I'll buy it sometime, and yeah, I too hope the 3th game is going to be better.

I hope they don't make it.

Waste of the world's resources.

Well from the questions they were asking they seemed interested in trying to make it so you can play on a worldwide map.
Plus they were asking about various aspects of game play, such as graphics/explosions/co-op modes/ multiplayer modes/world stats/ game controls etc

If anyone can help me out with some screen capture software and where/how to upload I'll try and take some picks of the questions as I've still got the URL and can re-answer the questions.

The 2nd wasn't bad it just should have been better.

The second one wasn't nearly as bad as people say it was. I can understand the complaints about bugs, even though I have yet to approach any, but the game itself holds up pretty well in my opinion. Not as good as the first and many other games out there I'll grant you, but it's still an enjoyable game in its own respect.

A good amount of people at the GS I worked at (Keep your GS Hatred comments to yourself. It's a job; and I need money) traded in the game in almost the next day. I haven't heard good things from nearly all of my regulars, but then again some people like even the worst of games. Even EA fucked up on the packaging:

That was a sealed copy, lol.

Anyway; Let's hope the series gets a replenish in the 3rd one. Maybe everything won't look BROWN like it did in 2, too.

Mercs 2 was meh at best.

The explosions were cool for the first hour or so, then you were left with a horrid support system and shitty on-foot gameplay. Having to press up on the d-pad and cycle through your airstrikes/supply drops every time you wanted to do ANYTHING was lame as shit.

Plus what was with only being able to have 3 things in your list at one time? Having to press start and tediously fiddle with your support list every 5 minutes got very old very fast.

Sweet, I loved the second one, I don't know why it gets so much hatrid. The most I can think of to suggest is to bug fix a lot more and maybe put it in some versus multiplayer modes? Or to try and vary the gameplay slightly.

Mercanaries 10:The Return Of Rick Astley.

Looking forward to this. I simply love the insane amounts of destruction and devastation in the games of Mercenaries! :D
