Back when I was an original Xbox Live beta tester, I played ridiculous amounts of MechAssault on the Xbox. I had never really played a mech-style game before this point, but the game was fun and addictive.
Now that we’re over six years into the cycle for the Xbox 360, it’s hard for me to not wonder where Mech Assault 3 might be hiding. That changes today, as supperannuation has discovered that Day 1 studios has worked on a new mech title, presumably MechAssault 3.
You’ll find concept art, a resume, and a LinkedIn profile that all happen to mention work on a “third-person action” title. Within those links you’ll find numerous mentions of mechs, mech customization system, and a mention of “Thunder & Checkmate”. If you’re a fan of the series, you’ll remember that MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf had a last mission title of “End Game/Checkmate”. There’s a mention of Summer 2012 as well, which could lead a possible reveal.
Day 1 Studios brought MechAssault and MechAssault 2, and we’re anxious to see what they can do with a third entry to the series. What do you think about another Mech Assault coming in the near future? Be sure to let us know what you think by leaving us a comment below, or join us in the forums!
