Paradox Interactive and Harebrained Schemes announced that the upcoming reboot of BattleTech will be arriving in early 2018. Originally meant to release later this year, the decision to delay it to the following year was to allow the developer time to smooth out the game. As part of this process, the company will be updating the Backer Beta to respond to feedback from backers. Another future update will add PvP to the game, allowing for backers to compete in head-to-head matches. The beta is set to last another month and those interested can opt-in to late backer status through the game's website.
BattleTech is the revival of the old MechWarrior franchise in the form of a turn-based strategy title from the makers of the Shadowrun Returns games. The game is currently only planned for a PC release.
