Long time no post! I've come here from time to time over the years, when I play MM8 again. I was a bit surprised to see no one talking about the upcoming release of Might and Magic X: Legacy! It's going to be turn based and "old school" with a new gameplay system. Check it out here > http://might-and-magic.ubi.com/mightandmagicx-legacy/en-gb/home/index.aspx
I'm not sure the releas date, but it is supposed to be released 2013. There is a trailor but not too much information about the game. Exciting! Let's hope.
