Your wait has been long, fans of Might and Magic, but it may soon be over. There is a secret page over at the official Might and Magic page which teases the new game.

Of course, no official word, but the large X does seem to say it will be a sequel to the original Might and Magic series, which last released M&M IX in 2002...

It's definitely been a long time then, and fans may be surprised; the Might and Magic series was last seen when 3DO closed down, and the series changed completely under Ubisoft's hands - it was 'rebooted' into Might and Magic: Heroes.

It does appear that Ubisoft are planning another venture into the roots of the series. This page shows a large X made of numerous low res icons, and the tag line: "Meet us at PAX East!"

It is possible that this is merely the official endorsement of a fan effort to make the tenth game, in the same way Crytek have recently allowed the non-profit Timesplitters Rewind to continue.

EDIT:

Ubisoft seem to be trying to make more of a mystery out of the page, with this recent tweet:

How many here remember playing Might and Magic IX? Do you think a sequel will do it justice after this long? Tell us your thoughts!

I am quietly optimistic that Ubisoft were inspired enough by Skyrim's success to come out with a more old-school competitor. M&M 6 was my childhood. Well, the first area of it was. Killing peasants. I was easily amused.

Interesting, though I don't think it will ever reach the awesomeness of VI and VIII, considering it is being made by another company. I remember spending a whole summer doing nothing else, but playing VIII.. Good times. :P

I loved heroes IV. It was great, but after it, Ubisoft ruined this title & I saw mediocre sequels of this title!

Heroes of Might & Magic and Might & Magic are two completely different series, HOMM is a strategy series and M&M is a traditional RPG series :D
