With the release of long-awaited action RPG Cyberpunk 2077 moved to December 10th, the developers from various studios have decided not to tempt fate and postpone their own projects to a later date to avoid competition with CDPR’s creation. The team from Piranha Games also reconsidered the release of Heroes of the Inner Sphere DLC for MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries aka MW5 Mercs.
“While exploring our options, we saw the potential to fulfill a longstanding dream of Piranha Games. To simultaneously ship across multiple platforms, including delivering a modern MechWarrior title to console gamers worldwide. So after much consideration and debate, we have decided that moving the release date of MechWarrior 5 Mercenaries DLC Heroes of the Inner Sphere to Spring 2021 is the right choice. This will allow us to fulfill that dream and more. We are excited and proud to announce that now, in addition to playing MechWarrior 5 Mercenaries on PC, it will also be available on the XBox Series X|S and XBox One. This will be the first MechWarrior title on a console since 2004’s MechAssault 2, and in our opinion, the first true MechWarrior experience ever on a console.”
