Piranha Games' Mechwarrior Reboot Is Still Happening... [UPDATE]

... Being Revealed Verrrrrry Sloooooowly

Remember the Mechwarrior reboot? Piranha Games has been worryingly quiet of late - but have recently started leaking fragments of a composite image on their twitter feed. These fragments appear to be forming a collage of a Mech, logo and the release date, which currently stands at "201?" I'm trying to identify the mech in question.

Piranha's new project is confirmed to be a reboot/prequel set in the year 3015, with plans to release on the PS3 and Xbox 360. With any luck, it will be a triumphant return for the slumbering franchise as opposed to another Front Mission Evolved fiasco. Check out the composite after the break.

UPDATE: PC Gamer reports that, contrary to earlier intelligence, the reboot will actually be a PC exclusive. That makes more sense.

It looks a bit like an up-armoured Atlas or Sunder variant to me? Drop me a line if you've got a better idea.

No PC release?

Consoles need to die NOW. They must not be allowed to hinder gaming any more!

@hurrakan: I'm about to make your day. Well, PC Gamer are, anyway. We've updated the story, and frankly, we reckon it makes more sense.
