Well, I think we can safely say now that after a decade, they decided to go along and make a true Might & Magic X. It is now time to worry. I wonder what will happen with this.


Game developers should be glad there is such projects, and just like in book/movie etc fiction there is always fan fiction, which unless author is pretentious snob is almost always if not even encouraged then at least silently allowed. Same is for games, and even more for game which have loyal community.
As for name- I think they should have chosen different one in first place(aside from IP thing, I think its unfair towards other projects like MMT and some other that were in making), well and now even more they should think of new one, or just call it children of the void.

The positive is that another MM game could attract more people to the Community, possibly someone who's interested in modding and such ... Maybe you'll get some more peeps to help out on this?

Children of the Void team is planning to move away from Might and Magic. The game is still being developed, but it will be set in its own universe. "Might and Magic X" name has been dropped, of course.
Make you strong places to dwell and practice the evil of your arts. Build great monuments to stand through the ages and remind your followers of the task with which you have been charged. Use these halls of iniquity to perpetrate your schemes against the infestation that has taken the fields and lakes of this land from you, their rightful masters. Never forget the hatred that must finally overcome and consume mankind. Dwell in your dungeons and brood. - Sheltem the Dark

Yeah it could still be called M&M CotV.
Let me know if you want to change the topic title.

Kinda defeats purpose of such fan project in first place. Basically people are expecting fan mm tie in rather than game "somewhat based on".

Hey, here's an idea, what about calling it what this topic title says - M&M 10 rather than M&M X? ;)

I understand dropping the name, but what the heck does moving away from Might and Magic mean? Won't it be an old universe Might and Magic game? If not, what's the purpose of it being made?

8| That makes no sense! Noone has a right to stop a fan-made MM game from being set in the old universe.

No, I don't think Ubi would mind a fan project, I think they'll like the fact that fans are so dedicated. If you want, I can ask them.

I'm almost certain this was asked before they started in the first place and especially before they put the M&M name on it. Ubi had said they definitely weren't going to do a 10 until now, but I can't imagine them caring as there is no intent to sell. The only real thing that a dev team could get into trouble for would be using the name which was already cleared.

Am guess after relase it will have name Might & Magic 11, or 12 because real M&M will be faster.

You probably mean not `faster`, but `sooner`. People complains about lags in that Legacy.

Are there any updates on this fan project? What happened to it after MMX was announced? I hope it's still going on :-)
