    Since some haven't heard the news, I will post it here. Hairbrained Schemes which was founded by Jordan Weisman (creator of BattleTech https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jordan_Weisman) who has also done the Shadow Run reboot. We will know more about the game next month would be my guess as it is going to Kickstarter in Fall of 2015, keep an eye on http://www.battletechgame.com for more information and as I find more information I will post it here.

    No more giving money away to new games for me. Learned my lession there. Maybe once it has been out for a year or so as an "offical release" then I will give it a try

    Thanks for the info Dark, its nice to see the founder of Battletech himself is going to handle this project. I firmly believe he will create a version of the game that is more fitting and true to the spirit of the original tabletop game. Don't worry about buying in BK, if its any good we will let you know I'm sure :p

    Yup if it was anyone else I would be worried, but being who it is I'm not too worried. Their Shadowrun series has been getting great reviews (which I'll most likely get on the next steam sale). I don't mind them sharing art assets with PGI as that will only help both companies out.

    As pointed out its the creator of Battletech doing the game, if anyone can make a good game it's him. He is also the guy who founded FASA Interactive which help on Mechcommander, so the guy has background to making good games.

    with today's game market and the way companies do business those facts are moot. Like I said, I will wait and see

    Got the MechWarrior package for the Battletech kickstarter. It has the most in-game content without real-world goodies.

    Not that I would hate having a Marik banner to hang on my wall...but if I was going to hang a banner there, it would have a decidedly equestrian theme. ;)
