MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Delayed

A tweet 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 game:
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 more details about our biggest event to date.

There needs to be 'enemy mech detected', and enemy mech's on hard mode should be actually be challenging. I fondly remember getting wrecked quite often in mech warrior 1 / 2, and coming across mech's twice my weight and being like 'fk me'.

I think 95% of MW1 players went through the game using a Locust to murder lances of Battlemasters by running behind them and machine-gunning their legs. They killed things ridiculously fast and you didn't have to spend so much time walking to the fight.

True that! Felt a little cheap after a while though.

There was a mission where you come across a couple of rifleman in a city, i took my Marauder in and kept getting my legs destroyed in 1-2 shots so i had to revert back to my little firefly or whatever the hell it was called.

Then there was a mission where a nuke was set off... sadly i had a mech with all empty space was occupied by PPC's and not much else. One shot basically = one kill, but i'd have to shutdown for 30 seconds after each click so i didn't quite make it out alive.

Awesome game. Hope this one isn't COD in mechs.
