Petition To Delay Heroes Of Might And Magic V
12:54 PM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Disappointed with the current state of the PC open beta of Heroes of Might and Magic V several fan sites have joined forces in the creation of a website and petition to delay the release of the game. With more time to polish the game the fans believe HoMM V will have a better chance of success. Some of the sites involved include Celestial Heavens, Age of Heroes, and Heroes Community.

After the rough start and continued issues of the Open Beta, and some investigation, these leaders realized that there was little time to act. Ubisoft’s fiscal year ends on March 31, coinciding with the release date. Ubisoft was also the target of a takeover bid in December of 2004, something they are not likely to forget easily. Wanting to hit or exceed their yearly targets could be a reason for the March 31 release date.

However, such short-term plans are exactly what doomed Heroes 4, New World Computing and The 3DO Company. SaveHeroes.Org is now open to try and prevent such a thing from happening.
