Talk:MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries
Prequel or Sequel
I'm pretty sure this game came out after MW2 and MW2:GBL. This page says it was a "prequal" to MW2. If I remember correctly, I heard that Activision was granted a license to make a game called MechWarrior 2, and they squeezed this license to make essentially three games by calling them all "Mechwarrior 2", and that "Mercenaries" was the last one they were able to do this with. — The preceding unsigned comment was provided by RichLongess (talk • contribs) .
- You're correct on it being a sequel. I don't know about the licensing stuff, but MechWarrior 2 came first, followed by its expansion pack Ghost Bear's Legacy, and then the game engine was used again (slightly refined I think) for MW2: Mercenaries. Thanks for pointing this out. I'll go and update the article. Frabby (talk) 12:32, 12 November 2014 (PST)
