It has been over ten years since the last main franchise Might & Magic title was released, published by 3DO and ultimately leading to its own downfall. Since then, Ubisoft has picked up the Might & Magic licensing, creating some fan-favorite titles like Heroes of Might & Magic V and VI, as well as Clash of Heroes. However, despite saying it might never be done, Ubisoft maybe on the verge of announcing a new main-franchise Might & Magic title.
Over the weekend a teaser site popped up on the Might & Magic official website -- a giant X made up of icons taken from the franchise over the years. Below the image are the words, "Meet us at PAX East!" Could Might & Magic X be announced soon? The official Might & Magic Twitter account doesn't seems so sure:

A currently in-development fan project named Children of the Void was intended to be the unofficial sequel that Ubisoft was unwilling to develop for Might & Magic. Perhaps the PAX reveal might have something to do with that? Or perhaps Ubisoft has figured out a way to bring back the series for a modern audience without insulting the fans for mixing up the formula.
PAX East starts this Friday, so hopefully we'll more information from Ubisoft on this potential Might & Magic X announcement soon.
