New BattleTech Box Sets Delayed

The upcoming BattleTech box sets have been delayed, according to a recent update from Catalyst Game Labs.

At Gen Con, our humble overlord Nic reported that the new box sets of BattleTech: A Game Of Armored Combat and the BattleTech Beginner Box would be available at the end of October. Now it seems that October date is going to be missed due to some unforeseen circumstances with the manufacturer.

“Despite being in near-constant contact with the overseas manufacturer throughout August, it is clear they have not shipped the production runs as expected,” wrote Catalyst on their website. We don’t have a lot of information as to what the problem is, but it’s clear from the post that Catalyst is freaking out. What’s worse, we don’t have a time frame for when the box sets will be available either online or in stores.

So that’s a dose of bad news. On the bright side, Catalyst doesn’t have to rely on manufacturers for their digital products. They’ve released a new digital download map pack and a triple-pack of sourcebooks for the BattleTech faithful. The Dig, Defend, or Die scenario book is a free download, as is the associated map pack from the Worldwide Event 2018. The new Touring the Stars: Stotzing is available for $2.99 on .pdf, and Spotlight On: First Marik Protectors is available for $3.99.

Or you can get the whole thing as a bundle for $5.99.

We’ll keep you informed if we get any updates from Catalyst.

And as always, MechWarriors: Stay Syrupy.

    Given the problems with Tariffs with China / US been slapping against one another.
    I won’t be terribly surprised that delay related to it.

    This is why you should produce locally instead of out sourcing to the Peoples Republic.

    If the plastic miniatures are delayed then maybe Ironwind should go ahead with making metal ones.
