"Endgame" wird das zwölfte Studioalbum von Megadeth heißen. Das Album wird im September erwartet und via Roadrunner Records veröffentlicht. Mustaine, der nach eigenen Angaben seit "Rust in Peace" nicht mehr so stolz auf eine Platte war, kommentierte den Titel und Inhalt wie folgt:
"Thematically, I've never been known to be a silent bystander in a world that needs our participation. As more is revealed about our former President's legacy, a little-known yet staggeringly frightening document, which was signed into law, named ‘ENDGAME,' has been uncovered. The album ‘ENDGAME' is the most energetic music offering I have penned in over a decade and is far more believable than knowing someone signed ‘ENDGAME' -the document- into law. The album is also the perfect ‘ass- kicking' music to listen to once you are done reading the aforementioned document!"

"This new album is my proudest moment since the famous (or infamous) Rust in Peace album. With this album I am also very excited to be introducing my new lead guitarist Chris Broderick to the world. I have always felt lucky to have had top shredders in that position but after touring with Chris in support of my last album, I couldn't wait to get into the studio and see what he could do."
