Just a few months back, word had gotten out that development on Blizzard's next big MMO project, codenamed "Titan" (not to be confused with EA's upcoming Titanfall), was entirely reset and starting over from the beginning. Now, during a financial call today, Activision CEO Mike Morhaime said that the project may not even be an subscription based-MMORPG anymore, according to Joystiq. Instead, Morhaime mentioned that they were still in the process of deciding what direction they want to go in with the project and are re-envisioning what they want it to be. No further details were given, and no release window was made mention of. It almost seems from the outside as if little progress has been made since the project's reset in May. Will we ever see Titan? Who knows at this point; it could just as easily become the company's next StarCraft Ghost (read: vaporware) given its troubled development so far.
Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsFor years, Blizzard was developing a brand new massively multiplayer game to build upon the success that started from their ultra popular World of Warcraft, but reports have recently surfaced that the developer has hit the reset button on the project, according to a source familiar with the matter VentureBeat claims. The team working on the game was once 100 developers strong, but a good 70% of them have now been reassigned to work on other projects, leaving a much smaller team to work on the MMO project, codenamed "Titan." At this point, the title is reportedly not expected to be published before 2016 at the very earliest. Why the delay? It could be in part because Blizzard chose to overhaul the engine or a substantial part of it to take advantage of next generation technology. This seems to be corroborated by the fact that Blizzard is hiring seven positions for a "Next-Gen MMO" as reported by IGN. Whether or not it's referring just to PC or including next gen consoles is currently unknown, however. Titan was supposed to have started development some 5 years ago (in 2008), so the project's restart and delay is a bit surprising though Blizzard has been notorious for cancelling and delaying games in the past. In any case, it's unlikely that we'll hear more about the project anytime soon. Source: VentureBeat Are you surprised to hear that development on Titan is being reset?
