I-play, the mobile entertainment company, has sealed a deal with Pandemic Studios, a leading console and PC game developer, to take the highly anticipated Mercenaries 2: World in Flames title to mobile phones worldwide. The mobile game will build on the success of the first console title in the Mercenaries franchise which sold more than 1.5- million units globally. 'Mercenaries 2' mobile will launch alongside the PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC versions of the game early next year.
In Mercenaries 2: World in Flames, the mercenaries return as a power-hungry tyrant makes a play for Venezuela's oil supply, sparking an invasion that turns the country into a war zone. But this time for the mercenaries, the chaos isn't purely about profit – its payback. In your quest for destruction and vengeance, you have only one code: EVERYBODY PAYS.
David Gosen, President, I-play, commented: "Pandemic Studios is a AAA developer, and we are excited to be partnering with them to bring the Mercenaries franchise to mobile. We are thrilled that Pandemic Studios has chosen I-play to expand the Mercenaries universe."
Josh Resnick, President of Pandemic Studios, commented: "I-play is a leader in the mobile market with a successful track record of developing and marketing game franchises. With this partnership, Pandemic Studios is excited to have I-play bring the Mercenaries 2: World in Flames experience to life on mobile devices. We can't wait to let our fans unleash Mercenaries-style destruction while on the go."
