The unseen are a bunch of battlemech designs that were ripped off from other franchises. He's thinking that since this game has a revenue stream, they might be able to license those battlemechs for use in the game from their IP owners. Some of the more iconic mechs disappeared because of this, the warhammer and rifleman were 2 that I really crushed me.

edit: and the stone rhino. I know that's going to sting someone...


edit2: Here's a list of all the mechs we won't see due to licensing. It's also my understanding that the warhammer shown in the original mechwarrior 5 trailer was cause for legal action. I think Piranha received a cease and desist when the trailer was released.
