Anyway, there's a kickstarter out, brought to you by the same guys at Harebrained Schemes who've managed to deliver on Shadowrun returns. The KS itself is over but you can still pre-order as a backer.
I'm sure some aspects of the campaign story will suffer from the same liberal tropes Shadowrun did, but.... Battletech! Skirmishes! PvP!
Update: More background on the Battletech universe from the incomparable Razorfist.
And some gameplay video from earlier this year.
