Where I work, when we can't meet a delivery date, nobody talks about polish. You guys are the best. :)

Well, likely it wil. Question is how big? :)



(Yea, confirmed. Quote Corlagon:"If CH hasn't already told you, the beta is not launching today. It was not officially announced that it would, either. It will be soon.")

I think that is a good idea. I would rather wait longer and have a good game then have at rushed and broken.

Polishing is what the real fans want. Let them take their time. I would rather wait and see what many unique surprises might be in store for H6.

I hope this means that they can put in some new and varied animations. Turn-based games would be perfect for this. Who doesn't want to see a dragon pick up a unit in it's mouth and shake it like a rag doll? Or a Titan (not that they're in this one :( ) kick a unit across the screen on a deathblow?

Good idea. It gives them time to remove that crap Sanctuary town and put in something decent.

Great, better a good Heroes game than a crap one. Wonder if the number of pre-orders convinced them to delay? Having sales lined up like that can make a huge difference.

Ubi aren't the only ones to do this, either. The Last Guardian, originally intended for a Christmas 2011 release, will be delayed to allow for "more challenging and better quality of content to users".

hm..seems all of you are happy. I'd say only that Im not sure they will "polish it" till a beta will be released. Only fans can help doing that; Ive seen them like they did with 5th of the series, so I'd dare not to put much trust in these people, also not mentioning they have been "very punctual" with the pre-order :P

Lets play some toe now!

In addition, polished poop goes down better sometimes with a smudge. If most don't like the game after these "improvements", then the answer is really simple....
