If you’re one of the many PC gamers that are waiting for Black Hole Entertainment’s much-anticipated turn-based strategy game Might & Magic: Heroes VI to arrive, then I’m afraid you’ll be waiting a little longer than you originally expected.

According to a recent article by Jay Acevedo over on the gamefocus.ca website, the upcoming PC game’s release date has unfortunately been delayed. Rather than hitting stores in June as originally planned, the game won’t be released now until September 8th.

The news of the launch date being pushed back was confirmed both on the official forums and the Facebook page. The reason behind the delay is simply that the development team wants to make sure that the quality of the game goes beyond fans’ expectations.

Might & Magic: Heroes VI – which was officially revealed during last year’s GamesCom event – will provide players with a host of new features including a town conversion functionality, a brand new reputation system, boss fights and online community features.

The Heroes VI game is in fact a prequel to the main campaigns of the Heroes of Might and Magic V game, and takes place 4 centuries earlier in the world of Ashan. The game consists of five factions: Inferno, Stronghold, Necropolis, Haven and Sanctuary.
