“MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is being delayed into 2019 so we can deliver the best single-player MechWarrior experience to date,” Bullock wrote. “As everyone knows, this is the first single player experience MechWarrior title released since 2002 and we are well aware of the responsibility and great opportunity we have in re-introducing MechWarrior to the world.”
He goes on to say that Piranha Games hopes to announce a new date at MechCon in December when they are a little bit more sure about the release. The game was first announced in 2015 with a tentative target date of 2018. Its predecessor MechWarrior 4: Vengeance was released in 2000.
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will be releasing on PC in 2019.
