GameSpy just posted a little Q&A regarding one of the two "secret" projects that Cyberlore has been working on for the past few months. As we're about to be showing it at E3 this week, the cat is out of the bag -

Couldn't find an estimated release date anywhere...

From looking at the screenshots, looks like this one is well on it's way to completion... can you give us an estimate on when it will be released?

Kewl. You guys really have a good thing going in being a part of making all the new Mechwarrior games... they certainly are one of my all time favorite series!

I hope MW4: Mercs is a standalone because, I'm, ah... running out of hard disk space...

MW4: Mercs - stand-alone - that's good to hear.

The Flea is a fast Mech isn't it?
I like fast Mechs.
I don't like getting blown up with a volley of six ER Larges, though.

Mercs is a stand-alone product - not an expansion.

Current release schedule is Q4 of this year.

The new 'Mech that people have seen at this show is the Flea (and it's very cool!)

That's all for now.

Here's the official text from the Microsoft Site -
Control 100 ton ‘Mechs while leading up to eight hired guns into the heat of battle in the quest for the all-mighty C-Bill in MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries, the latest standalone installment of the critically acclaimed MechWarrior action-simulator franchise.

And this time around, honor doesn’t even enter into the equation - it’s all about the money. Get your fledgling mercenary company sponsored by some of most notable and notorious mercenary groups in BattleTech history and battle your way through the Inner Sphere in more than 40 new missions as you doggedly pursue more lucrative C-Bill payoffs. With more than 35 ‘Mechs, new weapons, and new electronic packages available for purchase, chances are you’ll need every C-Bill you earn.

In MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries, being a hero doesn’t pay, being a mercenary does – very well.

Jay- When you mentioned about having a new picture of the "Warhammer" and then showing us that poster, will the redesigned Warhammer be another of the new mechs besides the Flea. Oh please say yes (and mean it). And, roughly, when might we be seeing any more teasers for mercenaries.
Now, as far as the new mechs from the Mech Paks are concerned, it looks like they all turned out pretty good, with the only exception being the Arctic Wolf. It is still a little underpowered. While I know that all mechs are based on those of Battletech and sometimes loosely based this mech could have used 2 more 2 slot hard points for the Streak 6's. At least that was how it was according to Battletech. Or, were you all afraid of making it to powerful, which I would understand. Also, is it possible to redesign any of the older mechs, most notably would be the Argus. It has such potential. Maybe, reassign the missile pod above and giving it a 2 maybe 3 slot gun arm on the left, keeping it a ballistic and not an omni. At the least, give it some sort of an electronics package. Keep up the good work, and am waiting for Mercenaries. Thanks.

P.S. Looking back at previous post, I find I was wrong about you posting that message about the redesigned Warhammer, it was MechTech who had posted it. But, if possible, can you tell us if the new Warhammer is a possibility. Again thanks.

Well, looking at that picture that Mechtech put in and doing some research, that mech is a Templar and not a redesigned Warhammer. Still, that is one nice looking mech and it is 85 tons. But I would like to see the Warhammer in the Mercenaries game, if they can get past license issues. Would be kind of hard to redesign that mech without ruining it, or making some of the die hard Mechers upset.

Hi, I'm new here. Any threads that deal with Mechwarrior 5? I have a huge list of things that need to be in it... which I'm sure overlaps some lists already discussed here... Where would I say all this?
