from Russ Bullock
has word from the president of Piranha games that the
release of MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries
is now expected in 2019. The plan
was for this to come out later this year, but Ross explains they are striving to
"deliver the best single-player MechWarrior experience to date." He says they
will provide a precise release date in December at MechCon where they will be
serving up a "robust and unforgettable playable demo" for the
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is being delayed until 2019 so we can
deliver the best single-player MechWarrior experience to date. As everyone
knows, this is the first single player experience MechWarrior title released
since 2002 and we are well aware of the responsibility and great opportunity we
have in re-introducing MechWarrior to the world.
At this time were only prepared to announce a slip into 2019 and would like to
give ourselves until MechCon this Dec 1st in Vancouver to determine and announce
the specific launch date in 2019 so we can be as accurate with our estimations
as possible and avoid further delays.
Although undoubtedly many MechWarrior fans will initially be disappointed by the
longer wait, we also feel confident and assured that we will get 100 percent
support from MechWarrior fans to release the best product possible.
Additionally, this gives fans and media more reason to attend this year's
MechCon to get hands on with a robust and unforgettable playable demo for
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries. Please visit https://mechwarrior.com/mechcon for
