Surprisingly good news has popped up, as it looks like a new Mechwarrior game will be announced shortly. Smith & Tinker had aquired the IP from Microsoft some time ago, and as I had mentioned then, there had to be a reason behind it.
According to Shack News, Piranha Studios is working on the new game. Should be fun to see where it goes…
In other sequel news, Deus Ex 3 has been noticably absent as of late. For whatever reason, I had convinced myself that the game would pop up in some form – screenshot, movie, demo – at this year’s E3, and even though I let myself sit through and watch it on G4, there was no mention of it whatsoever.
Stephane D’Astous of Eidos Montreal recently posted this cryptic message on his twitter account: “DX3 has never been so greenlight!” I’m assuming that it means some portion of the game has been given the go-ahead, and not that that Deus Ex 3 has been in limbo for the past several months. Either way, hopefully more info will be made available soon.« Flattery will get you everywhere More on the new Mechwarrior »
