... 3DO was was a bunch of short-sighted suits that acquired New World Computing, the studio that made mm1-9, in a weird corporate deal. 3DO knew they were going under and forced NWC to release the game before it was finished. UbiSoft bought the NWC assets when 3DO went bankrupt, but they really were only interested in the Heroes of M&M series. It's taken them many years to get around to MM10, they've avoided getting any of the original talent to work on it, and they've given the project over to a German studio. It will probably be a descent game, but it I'll be surprised if it has half the charm of the originals.
