    What?

    I'm pretty sure they didn't or something was wrongly interpreted here.

    I know but for me it's the exception, a Southpark cRPG is a so weird concept IMO.
    That really the feeling that i get reading theirs multiple interviews anyway.
    IronicNeurotic : they have clearly said something like this, it's not an interpretation, i'm sure of it but would not bother finding the source. So believe me or not.

    We are talking about Ubisoft, the company that make all their open world games collectible hunting for OCD retards, full of repetitive and shallow side activities, love to make scripted, linear missions to tell a story written by pretentious writers that write schlock thinking that they are amazing and profound. I have only a little hope if Obsidian are making this thing instead of the hacks that work for Ubisoft. This thing will be as if Skyrim and Assassin Creed had a child, if Obsidian is making this thing there is hope that they are going to preserve the RPG elements in some form, if the Ubisoft hacks are the ones making this thing, we are going to have a shallow RPG with a redundant skill system but don't worry there is a lot of collectibles to collect.

    No Ubisoft-owned dev has ever made a M&M game. I don't see why they would start doing them in-house now. But who knows?

    Is it possible that Ubisoft is officially endorsing the unofficial M&M X project that's been going on for a while? I just looked at their Facebook and the most recent status update from 2 days ago is: "We are live with a surprise mini-conference with guests from Ubisoft!" and before that they seem to have rebooted the project completely as of a few weeks ago.

    Seems unlikely but possible.

    I don't know about endorsing but they've probably given them permission to proceed as long as they don't call it M&M X or whatever.

    Will follow with mild interest, but I'm not holding my breath here. It's probably going to be shit.

    In theory this could work, actually. Newest HoMMs are not bad games as far as combat mechanics go. My only fear is that they remove trainers and force some online DRM crap like the legacy bullshit in HoMM6. Also to whomever thinks that Obsidian is a good choice for this type of game- go fuck yourselves.

    Well, whatever, there's virtually no chance this won't be shit. I refuse to let myself get any kind of excitement from something like this after the recent Ultima debacle. There's a chance they saw how well Legend of Grimrock did and decided to make an amazing, open world, turn-based blobber... but that's just getting hopes up. Fucking lol at the prospect of Obsidian doing this. I don't think anyone could anymore.

    Seems unlikely. From what I understand, Ubisoft has merely given the project its blessing. Here's what they told the project leader a few months ago:

    The Might & Magic team as a whole is honoured by the time and energy you and your team are putting in the Children of the Void project. It is truly delightful and humbling to see fans hard at work to continue the tradition of the past Might & Magic games and universe...That being said, using the name “Might & Magic X” for your project is unfortunately an issue with Ubisoft. The name would imply your game is an official Might & Magic product, which could be misleading for the community. Also, there’s always the possibility a Ubisoft-produced Might & Magic X is released in the future...We have no issue however with you continuing the previous storylines or using the pre-Ashan characters. Mentioning the name Might & Magic is also OK as long as the “fan-produced” and “unofficial” nature of the project is obvious.

    ~Might & Magic Team Representative, Ubisoft Entertainment

    Somebody might want to tell Ubisoft. They categorize it as so on their website. If they can't distinguish what an RPG is and isn't, it doesn't bode well for their future RPG endeavors.

    I guess, it's the same team (Related Design) that did the new online M&M game
    Maybe they developed both projects simultaneously, because those high res assets look very suitable for a PC game as well.

    Well, it would be a better option than the guys that worked on Assassins creed and Shit Cry 3, Obsidian is a storyfag company but they actually created RPGs on the past, something that you can't say about the Assassins creed/Far cry 3 people. Another possibility is Ubisoft outsourcing the development to a cheap eastern european developer and we saw how wonderful HoMM 6 was. I prefer the old New World Computing guys making this thing, but the chances of this happening is very, very, very small.

    Well, I have to admit that is pretty cool of them. It's extremely rare that companies don't get butthurt to the extreme when someone uses one of their valauble IPs, especially one that is successful and has games being released to this day. Even Sierra (or whoever owns it now) C&D'd the King's Quest sequel when there hadn't been a game in the series in over 10 years. Maybe those fangames are safe afterall; I was particularly looking forward to the Xeen-inspired one made in RPGMaker, which looked surprisingly good.

    Guys, you're all wrong.
    They hired Cleve to make the game single-handedly. Only person on earth who can do it.

    It's not that I don't believe you, but they said the opposite a lot and recently as well. (Including mentioning they would like to do publisher products (especially because of licenses) + hardcore games alongside each other)

    That's why it's weird to me.

    "Heroes Kingdoms, Clash of Heroes… Ubi seems to capitalize on the “Heroes” name. What are the chances to see one day a real Might&Magic X desperately wanted by the fans?"

    Although that quote is from 2009, it's supposedly from Erwan Le Breton, the guy who heads M&M and worked on the last 5-6 games in the "franchise." It doesn't mean much; I'm just bored and trolling around for any possible info. :smug:

    Does anyone know who did the design work at NWC? I liked M&M strictly for the combat, which just felt right. I'd love to see those guys start a kickstarter project, but not for M&M. For something new.
