Title: Launch Date is September 17th, 2013
Post by: Falconeer on July 03, 2013, 12:52:01 PM
Here's the official announcement. (http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/07/03/mechwarrior-online-release-date-announced-open-beta-infographic-will-terrify-engineers/)

It doesn't say anything special, and it has a very stupid infographic with it. The only piece of info that is new is that they have 1.1M registered accounts.

ahh launch date for a game that we've been playing for a year. I love it. Marketing at its finest.

I agree with you, in general. In this case though, this launch date means we are gonna get UI 2.0, factions, leaderboards, achievements and a few more meaningful fixes by that date. I guess it's just a self-imposed deadline which ends up being good for us because it forces them to speed up the meaningful updates.

For a game that is freely available and has an active cash shop I read that as, "We're running out of money and it's not going to get much better than this".
