Greetings MechWarriors!

We have had a recent influx of questions about a November preorder Mech and questions surrounding what Mech would be shipping in January. We thought it would be a good idea to share this information with everyone

Q: What is the November Preorder Mech?

A: There isn’t one! The Warhammer IIC is the October and November Preorder Mech. The Warhammer IIC Early Adopter Deadline is set to expire at the End of November!

Q: What Mech is shipping in January?

A: There isn’t a new Mech shipping in January! December is a bit of an odd month for us with Mech Con, shipping the 2 Mech Evolution Pack, Hatamoto Chi, and Charger, top it all off with Seasonal Holidays and there isn't a lot of Dev time in December. For that reason, we are not shipping a new mech in January.

Here is the current schedule of announced Mech releases.

Mech

Preorder Month

Release Month

Vapor Eagle

August

November

Hatamoto Chi and Charger

September

December

Warhammer IIC

October

February

Q: When will the Next Preorder Mech be announced?

A: The next Mech preorder will be announced at Mech Con!

Q: What can you tell us about the next Mech? Is it PGI original?

A: Attend Mech_Con or Tune into Piranha Games Twitch Channel on Dec 1st and 2nd to find out!

Well it's good to know at least. But it makes for one less thing to talk about on the forums.

At least you guys can't screw up at Mechcon any worse than Blizzard did at Blizzcon. Yeesh, that was a travesty. I swear if you announce MW5 for mobile... >: (

Well I guess with the doubling up of the Charger/Hatamoto has made for a bit of backlog and I'm sure you guys have things you're getting ready for Mechcon.

BTW, can we get the Dragon Fire please? Or the Templar.

Whatever it is, if they are going all-in to announce it at mechcon, it has to be big (in their minds at least).

So the Dev;s can work on the game instead of mechs, that is nice.

Scrap a multiplayer mode qp-grouped and/or solaris-2vs2
Decrease QP-maps in FP.

Grand Dragon you're kinda right, but in PGIs case, I would've added that as a Dragon variant, DRG-5K, and be done with it. Not sure why they didn't add that yet. Might come for another one time surprise like the Powerhouse. Since the Flame already has an energy right arm, it should be easy enough to add nowadays.
Black Hawk-KU is a different model, lots of similarities, but different. And an IS omni, of which there are none yet.
Urbanmech IIC ... without the massive quirks it wouldn't be as good as the IS ones.

Much more? Well, theres lots of variants of IS mechs in lore, not all of them can be built with the currently available MWO hardpoint variations. As with the Grand Dragon/DRG-5K example, if there is a variant already in game with the needed hardpoint(s) in a certain location, that should be easy to add. And could come any time they need/want something kinda new and quickly available.
