Infinite Games Publishing has earned $5 million in sales since July, thanks to the Founder’s Program of MechWarrior Online that recently closed- a pre-beta program.
“Working together with IGP, we maximized the value for fans participating in the MechWarrior Online Founder’s Program by offering three tiers to suit different player’s needs,” said Russ Bullock, president of Piranha Games. “Ultimately the program was a categorical success and we couldn’t be happier with the sales and important player feedback we’ve received.”
