According to a development team member, this was the first Might and Magic
title where New World Computing
had a deadline forced upon them by 3DO
Might and Magic IX
has the weakest connection to the Might and Magic universe
. For the first time in the series, there is no mention of the Ancients, and the only connection to the previous games is a single character who appeared in Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven
This is the first game in the Might and Magic
series that does not have a sub-title. All previous games had one (from "Secret of the Inner Sanctum" for MM1
to "Day of the Destroyer" for MM8
). Among the fan base, the game is called "Writ of Fate".
The subtitle "Writ of Fate" first appeared in a story by Norwegian website gibme.com
. This story revealed the existence of Might and Magic IX before there was an official announcement. When asked for comment
, a 3DO representative stated that the details mentioned in the article were subject to change, and specifically denied that "Writ of Fate" was the title. It is unknown whether "Writ of Fate" was a working title, but no officially released material from 3DO/New World Computing has ever used it.
