Microsoft recently closed FASA Studios, which created MechWarrior 4 and Shadowrun. However, they have given a mod team permission to use assets and property from the BattleTech universe.
This is awesome, because usually mod teams get shut down by property owners who don't want independent developers using the licensed content.
The mod is called MechWarrior: Living Legends and is currently planned for release as a mod for Crysis.
Kudos to Microsoft for letting a team of fans utilize assets that they aren't going to.
