MechWarrior Online is being developed by Piranha Games for Montreal’s Infinite Game Publishing. The closed beta launched at the end of May and early access for die-hard fans is planned for mid-July.

Infinite is also publishing MechWarrior Tactics, being developed by Roadhouse Interactive and Burnaby’s A.C.R.O.N.Y.M. Games. Tarrnie Williams, president of Roadhouse, said that the turn-based collectible strategy game they’ve conceived suits the MechWarrior franchise. “What we built is something that didn’t exist before but is lots of fun,” he told the Straight.
