Other domains registered included the currently-blank – potentially a move to thwart squatters looking to capitalise on the freshly-announced Might & Magic Raiders announced this week at gamescom. (The official website is, by the way).

The new free-to-play, class-based action/rpg looks pretty delicious, too:
