I suppose it will, once all current troubles are out of the way.
I think Irina stated somewhere that Heroes VI exceeded expectations. I highly doubt that Ubisoft will simply discard such an oppertunity.

Whether there will be an expansion I donīt know, but I absolutely and most sincerely hope so.

They should include some kickstarter-component into it - I guess it would accelerate things.

I think an expansion will come earliest in 2013, but that's just guessing from my part. But I'm convinced an expansion will come at some point. I do hope they make the vanilla game enjoyable before they focus on an expansion, however.

I don't know why even the question is asked by OP & why some other people aren't sure of further work on it.
ofc there will be expansion, just look at H5 progression & the other hints!
First half 2013 because they stuffed it & can't make end of 2012.

Real question is whether 1 faction per expansion or 2 => will give an idea of how many expansions they make/milk.
I think many expect 4 additional factions total (aca/syl/dun/dwa) but they'll probably surprise/shock ya.

My other real hope of having Q's AI in H6 already died.

The only thing I can say for certain is that I won't buy anything else related to this brand until the original Heroes VI is fixed. Possibly even after that. Ubisoft have to spend a lot of time in the purgatory before they can even ask for forgiveness but one of the problems is that people tend to forget and forgive way too quickly.

They didn't reveal anything in the press conference... not that I was expecting anything, since last year they didn't show H6 (which shows how much Ubisoft cares about the game), but you never know.

I expect a small expansion.

As history shown us, Hammers of Fate was the next evolutionary step of the game.

Fixing permanently a lot of gameplay issues and misprogramming of the interface while apposing the fact that it is the next logical version for this strategy game. Version 2.0, obviously.

The lessons of progression of development of MMH5 is a lot of people just like me will rush to acquire such expansion in order to skip all the unnecessary patching that is already included in that very same expansion. Therefore, putting the vanilla version into utter obsolescence and, becomes a mere requirement for future re-installations on other, newer PCs. Also, the RMG is planned for such expansion as to guarantee replayability of MMH6 and, to secure its future in an ever lasting legacy of this great series.

TotE was 10 times better than HoF.

but imo, H5 should have had a third expansion.
It would have featured Sanctuary and Might/Magic heroes for all factions.

Well, yes, it should. But together with speeding H5 up, the game would - probably - be better than H3... and that is a goal, that Ubi obviously, does not want to achieve... ever

Absolute bulls-eye on that one, Xerox.

Totally agree. I, still, prefer H5:TotE to this day than that weird new gameplay approach of MMH6. I, myself, since 2008-9, was wondering if an expansion would have been possible to a Stand-Alone redux-like expansion themed game. Unfortunately, that probably was Nival's plans and, Ubi. cut them off short, real short.

Furthermore, you are also right about the Naga faction being the focus point of that planned extra expansion. Sanctuary was a name voted in way after Nival's severed links with Ubisoft; Black Hole's idea to implement it. I truly suspect Ubi's unfair and unjust actions toward BH for having done so. What the heck is Ubi's problem with the Naga faction, anyway? Too asian themed? Perhaps. I bet that a lot of anti asian like racist slurs must have been used at the time(Last Year-2011).

Well all Heroes games up till now had expansions (except H1) so i think it's only logical ....

However there's a shadow of a doubt from my part - I certainly expect expansion, yes - but I would not be too much surprised that H6 will be expansionless (new dictionary word i invented), and instead bring all extra content in form of DLC's (which lately are the thing in gaming altho i don't like them as much as full expansions).

Reasons behind my doubt? well first of all it took (and is still taking) forever to fix original game ... what are we at - 1.4? and we have to get to 1.7? Secondly they can get more money by charging 10EU per DLC for relatively small doses of content - one expansion for 30EU or 5 DLC's for 10EU? (example numbers)

All in all i still think there will be expansion - simply coz DLC is too small to introduce entire new race or two - so yes - i think we will have expansion in future.

When the campaign was made, Black Hole were still involved in the game.Now there are no developers to make Dungeon.Maybe we will see Academy (it is half-made by Black Hole),but Limbic can't produce "full scale content" (these are Ubi's words).So we'll have to wait for Heroes 7 another several years to maybe see the factions that aren't included in Heroes 6.

Probably this post by adriancat over here

http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=37708&pagenumber=10

Eventho i still want to know who said that they cant produce full scale content. For me the news is just conflicting and i still dont see a source for this claim.
