Titan - new Blizzard MMO

Post by Alusi » 20 Jul 2013 11:28

Anyone got any other info on this one?

Titan - Maybe Blizzards replacement for WOW

First I have heard of it, but I really like the leaked details with it having an ancient world (Greek/Roman/Nordic) mythological content. Some kind of eEports enabled content, I wonder if they will be doing anything based on Ancient Greek Olympics format!

Sounds interesting at least. ;)

They can't possibly think about a titanic project (size-wise) and put any decent lore on it, otherwise they won't be able to release regular expansions with dancing pandas and flying dragons, and that is bad for the pocket :roll:

Well I will go where the best action is, I am not a "fanboy" of anything about anything.

Just want something that will fill the lack of AoC content and development we have had for the last year or so.

Plus AoC is 5 years old now so maybe ESO or this will be the MMO to move onto for Sword and Sorcery based combat, you know games where people can stab enemies with pointy things rather them shoot them with AK47's or whatever.

•When it comes to weapons, we'll have almost everything at our disposal, from magic to guns

Ah it seems Titan is the internal code name for the MMO that Blizzard staff are using for this new massive MMO

Also it seems this one will be a late 2014 release or whenever.

http://titanfocus.info/topic/140-titan-timeline/
May 28th, 2013: After a few delay rumors emerged, Blizzard announces that they need to make large changes to the technology and design of Titan, and as such the project has been delayed and some of the non-core team members will be reassigned to other projects while the core team works on refitting the tools and tech.

Looks like the rumor mill is churning again, and this time the news is not good. According to Venture Beat, "a source familiar with the matter" has informed them that development on Titan has been slowed down severely, with 70 of the 100+ developers working on the title being reassigned to Blizzard's other projects. The ones that are left will start over on Titan, trying to take the game on a different path. As such, the soonest expected release is now 2016. This is of course still just unconfirmed info, and until Blizzard comments on this it should be treated as such.

Blizzard's to-be-announced massively multiplayer game, codenamed Titan, has allegedly been rebooted and delayed. According to VentureBeat, the Blizzard team of 100 reassigned 70% of the project's staff, leaving a small team to start over. Titan is tentatively planned for a 2016 release, at best.

Might be the AoC killer everyone been talking about since 2008.. should fit the timeframe of being the killer around 2016 ;)

Well right now Blizzard is so rich that their only focus is getting ever more richer :P

I doubt they'd put up anything worth spending time over because whatever mmo they come up with to replace WoW, it will be dumb enough to cater to the new generation of lazy gamers.

Even if they do come up with something decent, they'll just fuck it up with some real money auction house like thingy (ala Diablo 3).

Right now, the only recent and respectable game from Blizzard is Starcraft in my opinion and even there Riot and Valve are streets ahead of Blizzard in terms of providing support for esports. If they try to push their next mmo as an "esport" it will only complicate things for them and for players.
