New Mechwarrior in the works

I am glad that the mechwarrior franchise is still moving along.

More info in the link. Though it appears the game will be a single player game.

Yes please !! More Mech games is good !

They dip their toes on consoles with the help of Game pass and even though the game was rough around the edges I thought it was a success.

I’m glad they are doing another one. They need to build the game with console in mind though, especially for menus and controls.

I hope they are thinking about making a real campaign this time. That would be great !

Edit : edited my post as it seems to be another main game like Mechwarrior V but hopefully the main campaign will have a bigger scope and not relying too heavily on randomly generated missions like the last game.

Yeah a real campaign will be nice. Though i wouldnt mind a mercenary mode that expands on what 5 implemented.

Also seeing them bring in cut features like infantry and better destruction would be nice as well.

Hopefully not PC only.

I kinda miss these games. Remember Mech Assault on the first Xbox?

I think a mech assault game is long overdue… As is a new battletech game.

The mechwarrior/ battletech franchise has alot of genre versatility…

Battletech - turn based Assualt - arcade mech fun Warrior - mech sim

It as well as the other fasa franchises need way more love… even if the rights to them are a lil funny.

Going off topic… i hope one day when the Activision deal closes we can get a mechwarrior 1 through 4 bundle that works on modern consoles and pcs for presevation sake alone.

That would be great.

By the way, there was a mech game on Xbox, I think I played that back in 2021, not sure if it was Mech Warrior but sadly it wasn’t too great in my opinion. Tech wise quite sloppy too.

We are getting a brand new Armored Core though, things are starting to look up.

I played it on Game Pass and bought it with some of the DLC so I surely want them to work on an Xbox version. It’s on PS5 too, so I’m pretty sure it’s coming on every platforms from now. Maybe Game Pass again.

It was probably MechWarrior 5… :smiling_face_with_tear:

It was pretty rough yeah. Framerate was really bad, especially with the destruction in cities.

Yeah mech warrior 5 sadly wasn’t optimized well… i have faith that with lessons learned the next game will be better. Cause mw5 scratches the mech sim itch… i just need more story.

They need to make a new MWO it’s so good but really feels its age.

MW5 was OK but needed a lot of polish and missions got repetitve

Personally id be pretty happy with them just adding multiplayer into this potential MW6 and giving it all the polish it deserves.

They don’t have the resources to develop that much. The need to get the people that paid £500 for a mech to finance a new game :joy:
