Piranha Games has announced that MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries has been delayed to December.
The game has been delayed for three months, from September 10 to December 10. The game will also be a timed exclusive on the Epic Games Store.
According to studio’s website, the delay and the partnership with Epic allows the team to create the best possible experience with MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries. Anyone who has already preordered the game on the official website will be able to cancel and receive a full refund by September 1. Additionally, the game will have a closed beta in November. However, those who cancel their orders will lose access to the beta as well as exclusive DLC items, but will be able to keep the online content from the Standard, Collector, and Ultimate Editions of the preorder.
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is not the only game that the Epic Game Store has managed to get exclusivity from in the PC marketplace. The PC storefront has exclusivity with other major titles such as Shenmue 3, Borderlands 3, Detroit: Become Human, Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, Ghost Recon Breakpoint, and Metro Exodus.
