MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Coming In December 2018, According To Piranha Games

MechWarrior 5

When Piranha Games announced last year that they were developing a single player sequel to the long dormant MechWarrior series, it came as a bit of a head-scratcher at first to some. Though for other long-time fans, the potential future of the franchise was more than a little exciting.  MechWarrior Online has been giving Mech enthusiasts an arena to engage in mecha combat, but the promise of a new single player MechWarrior game has caused much excitement. Now, Piranha Games has announced when MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will be released.

Piranha Games president Russ Bullock announced at the MechaCon 2017 event in Vancouver that MechWarrior 5 will be released in December 2018. If this releases as planned, it would be expected to release in time for the 2018 MechaCon event. MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries would then be the first single-player MechWarrior game since MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries released in 2002. Bullock acknowledged this by saying the game would be “the same kind of action simulator that people have been wanting for 15 years.” Where this game will reportedly differ from previous MechWarrior games is that it would allow the player to run their own mech company like classic sim games of old.

Piranha Games also confirmed that the game will support Steam Workshop modding and will have 4-player co-op gameplay. The game is certainly shaping up to be what mech fans have been waiting Far too long to see. What do you guys think about the release window for MechWarriors 5: Mercenaries?
