Bipedal Mechanized Infantry info


So I searched to find if there was a thread and saw none on this. If there is, can someone point me in the right direction?

Anyways, I was curious what people think about the possibility of bipedal (2 legs) mechanized infantry, basically Mech Warrior style, Avatar or armored core (not super fast, but the walking, guns, etc...)?

I know currently bipedal motion for robots is difficult and slow, but do you think we'll ever get to the point of having that capability? I know currently we have the idea of power armor which would be cool to have once the power packs get developed further, but are there advancements for larger and heavier armored vehicles?

What do you think will be the capabilities if this does get deveopled?
