Publisher Infinite Game Publishing has told GamesBeat that its title MechWarrior Online now has more than 1.1 million registered players. The game is currently in an open beta and the full version of the game is set to be released on September 17.

"We are focused on the two key groups, the core players that have supported us throughout the entire process and the new players who have not heard of the game yet," said IGP's head of publishing Kelly Zmak.

"For the Core, more features and content around the lore and cannon are being added constantly. Every two weeks the game changes with even more advanced game play features and social elements. For the new user, [we made] a new tutorial system and easy entry features — and, for both groups, [we are adding] a new user interface and more ways to interact with each other."

After the full version of th game is released the developer plans to constantly be releasing updates for the game. This includes more mechs, more maps and more features.

Zmak also added that IGP's partnership with Piranha has been key to getting the game to this point. The partnership has been a success for both IGP and Piranha.
