MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, the first single-player, first-person action game to be created in the BattleTech universe in 15 years, has been delayed. Piranha Games’ president Russ Bullock made the announcement on Twitter: Mercenaries is now expected sometime in 2019.
“MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is being delayed,” Bullock said, “so that we can deliver the best single-player MechWarrior experience to date. We are well aware of the responsibility and great opportunity we have in re-introducing MechWarrior to the world.”
Bullock indicated that a more narrow release window would be announced in December 2018.
The Vancouver, British Columbia-based independent game studio announced Mercenaries in 2016 with a splashy, seven-minute trailer. The first-person game will put players inside the cockpits of legendary BattleMechs, the hulking war machines popularized by the tabletop game BattleTech, which was first published in 1984. The last MechWarrior-themed game in the style of Mercenaries was published in 2002.
