MechWarrior 5 Mercenaries

Piranha Games’ highly anticipated sequel MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries has faced another delay. Instead of September, it’s now releasing on December 10th for PC. Furthermore, it will be heading to the Epic Games Store as timed exclusive. The exclusivity period will be for one year.

In a recent statement, executive producer Russ Bullock said, “Our partnership with the Epic Games store allows Piranha the opportunity to make sure MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries meets our internal goal of creating the best MechWarrior game possible.

“Since we announced the development of the first single-player MechWarrior game in 17 years, we have stated that our goal was to deliver to fans a MechWarrior: Mercenaries experience with true freedom of choice and to be able to share that experience in a coop setting.

“Understandably some fans will be disappointed that they have to wait a short while longer for MechWarrior 5, but it’s important to Piranha Games that we absolutely get this right. We are happy to say that our new partnership with Epic Games store allows us the time and ability to accomplish our goals both in the games development and marketing efforts.”

Those seeking refunds for pre-purchasing the title, especially when it was initially meant to launch on Steam, can appeal for the same. You can also ask for a refund due to the game being delayed. Access to the closed beta and pre-purchase DLC items will be revoked though. To find out more about refunds, check out the game’s FAQ here. The beta will now be held on November 5th.

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries was announced back in 2016 and originally slated to release in 2018. It was delayed to this year and we received footage of the destruction that players would be capable of. We’ll see how the game’s exclusivity to the Epic Games Store affects its response at launch.
