20 Years of BattleTech

That's right! BattleTech has been with us for 20 years, now! And many of you, I know, have been with it from the beginning. (I've only been playing about 15 years, myself.)

It is amazing, when you think about it, that our game has remained basically unchanged for longer than any other combat war game I can think of.

Here are some interesting facts from BattleTech.com:

An estimated twenty-five million people have played a BattleTech or MechWarrior game or read a BattleTech or MechWarrior novel since the property’s inception in 1984.

More than eleven million copies of MechWarrior PC games have been sold to date.

The BattleTech®/MechWarrior® story line is one of the most successful science fiction lines ever created. More than seventy full-length BattleTech or MechWarrior novels have been published by Penguin Books and translated into more than fifteen languages.

Over three hundred and fifty different BattleTech/MechWarrior game and toy products have been produced to date; several products, such as the Technical Readout series, the core rulebook and base box set, have been in continuous print (in on form or another) since publication.

Ten million people have played the BattleTech/ MechWarrior virtual reality game.

More than eleven million MechWarrior: Dark Age Collectable Miniatures Game figures are currently in play on tabletops all over the world.

More than five thousand World Wide web pages have been created to date by the exceptionally loyal, vocal and well-connected BattleTech/MechWarrior community.
