We have been waiting for the MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries for ten years now and we need to add three more months to that sum. When you tell someone you have been waiting for a decade, they will tell you that three months are nothing compared to that. However, getting the news was bitter-sweet for fans. The bitter part was the fact that they need to wait a little longer and it will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store for a while. Are you asking about the sweet part? At least it will be released.
It has been announced on 26th of July by the developer of the game that the launch of the MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will take place on 10th of December when it was supposed to be released two months earlier. However, it will make for a great Christmas present. Epic Games has exclusive rights to this game for a while, but after that expires, other digital game stores will feature it.
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Launch Postponed Until December, And Will Be An Epic Games Store Exclusive
Pirahna Games offered some explanations in the FAQ saying that the release of the game has been delayed because of the partnership with Epic. They needed all the financial footing necessary to make MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries of the best quality possible. Aside from the 88 percent of the sales, Pirahna Games would get, which is more than the usual 70%, Epic Games Store is also known for an exclusivity hunter. Accordingly, that will give all the money necessary to make a game appear only on their store for a while.
As now Piranha Games has more money to invest, expect MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries to be better than for what you have been waiting for ten long years now. We have to wait until December to see that.
