The rumors are true: There's a new Mechwarrior game coming and these are your daddy's mechs. Here are some details:
- Piranha Games is working on the new title in conjunction with Smith & Tinker, the company founded by Jordan Weisman, the man behind original Battletech creator FASA.
- The new game will not be Mechwarrior 5 but will instead simply be Mechwarrior, a "reboot" of the classic gaming series.
- It takes place in the closing years of the Third Succession War. In the year 3015, the forces of the Draconis Combine launch a massive assault against the planet Deshler, killing the family of slacker nobleman Adrian Khol; as Khol, players must take up the mantle of a mechwarrior, battling the Kuritan forces to free his planet and avenge his family.
- The game is currently being developed for the PC and Xbox 360. (Notes: Microsoft still owns the MechWarrior license.)
