In April, Ubisoft announced that the Might and Magic X: Legacy servers would be offline. But with this shutdown that turned off the game's strict DRM compatibility, the 2014 RPG was left completely impossible to play, with Ubisoft now deciding to withdraw it from Steam instead of solving their problems.
After the June 1 break, Might and Magic players found that not only were they left out of the game's DLC, but they weren't able to fully advance after Act 1. However, Ubisoft was still selling the game and paid extras, prompting a massive backlash on Steam forums and overwhelming negative reviews.
An Ubisoft spokesman then told us that the publisher was "up to date and investigating the reported problems." Unfortunately, the resolution seems to completely remove the game from Steam, and the list indicates that the game is not available for purchase at the request of the publisher.
That, thankfully, means no one else will pick up the broken role-playing game anytime soon. But it’s little consolation for existing Might and Magic players, who are now left with a broken game that they may never play again.
I turned to Ubisoft to comment on the future of Might and Magic X.
