Ubisoft: HoMM V Ships for PC
We now have the GM Source and have started work. It won’t be an easy port, it’s looking like there are a few complicated issues, (most of which go over my head since I’m not a coder), but we’ll get it done! No time estimate yet it’s still too early in the process.
Colin also mentioned that their working relationship with Ubi has been smooth sailing, and describes the HOMM•V producer / mastermind Fabrice as “very pleasant and accommodating to work with.” Hopefully this will mean that there will be no trouble keeping the OSX version in lock-step with developments on the PC-side.
