Q&A: the Expansion and the Future
- by Kalah
The interesting bits:
- The HoF structure was decided a long time ago; meaning the dwarves have been planned to return for some time.
- Sadly, the RMG will not be compatible with the standard version of the game.
- Patching will continue, in accordance with the original plan.
- The UbiSoft management is happy with the way the game has been selling so far. I would suggest that this is good news for the series and increases the chances of a continuation, something Fabrice himself seems to agree with:
"Making expansions is a way for a publisher to continue providing content for a complex game (strategy games, usually), and increase its quality long after the initial game was released. So, it does help increase the revenue, but you need to have a success with the original game first :) As it is the case with H5, the addon should hopefully be a success too. It will in turn increase the chances that Ubisoft invests in the future of the series"
Oh, and I think I just gave Fabrice an idea... to make a "Might and Magic Complete" edition... :)
