Mechwarrior will get a reboot

Written by David Stellmack



Will be a PC exclusive to start with


After years of going back and forth, it would appear that a Mechwarrior reboot is going to happen after all. With legal wrangling to acquire the right to produce a new title and trademark disputes settled, things are in place to proceed with Piranha rumored to be the developer.

From what we hear, the first title will arrive in the second half of 2012 and has apparently been in secret development for some time. The first Mechwarrior title will be a PC exclusive. No word yet on if there will be a console release, but we suspect that down the road there will be one; just can’t say when.

There are still a lot of blanks to be filled in, but Jordan Weisman’s Smith & Tinker apparently still controls the rights (after getting them in 2007). Then, a trademark dispute was waged in 2009, and after that there seemed to be hope of a release, but that didn’t pan out. More details to follow.
