All in all a very impressive list of potential things being shown at this years E3 from Microsoft! Seriously if a new Mechassault game is finally being released I’d be super happy as I had so much fun playing the originals online back in the day. It would also be interesting to see Microsoft acquire IO Interactive as they finally became an independent studio from Square Enix not to long ago. If this rumor does turn out to be true Microsoft please give us a sequel to Freedom Fighters! As with all rumors though take this with a grain of salt until official confirmation can be given.
