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.

What "other projects" could they be assigning these developers to? confused.gif

I'm pretty sure that they should be doing Diablo's first expansion soon.

The famous road map that showed Diablo 3 coming out in Q4 2011 showed the first expansion was targeting Q2 2013.
Taking the delay of D3 into account, I would have thought that Diablo 3 X1 should be released around Q2 2014?

-> A smaller dev team will be in charge of redesigning the project and about 60 or 70 developers are being moved to other teams (WoW, Blizzard All-Stars, Diablo 3 expansion, Battle.net)

SC2, WoW, D3. SC2 has another expansion in the works, WoW has 2 more expansions at least, and D3 has at least one expansion in the works.

Surprising that they "reset" it. I really don't know if WoW could last until 2016. There is only so long that they can delay the Sargeras raid, which is pretty much the end of WoW.

My feeling is Titan stuck to the traditional MMO style and they saw it was pretty much a dead end genre that they killed.

I would think that those teams have enough support already, apparently not though.

But yeah the game they had must not have been up to their standards or different enough from wow.

Ten more years of WoW expansions? *sigh* Well, if it continues to make them respectable money then I guess that's how it's going to be.

I was a long time WoW player but I finally stopped this past year. I'd be interested in Titan if they ever get around to releasing it would be interesting to see what they come up with for it. I'm hoping its gonna be pretty awesome.

Probably a D3 clone and since that failed very badly they're going from the ground up again...

This here, I'm pretty sure that the RMAH and AH in Diablo 3 was just a test of how people would react, and we all know how that worked out. From what I read before, Titan was supposed to be a FTP model probably with some kind of RMAH, and since Diablo 3 turned out to be such a FLOP they had to redo the whole game.

Don't really care since I won't be giving blizzard another cent after what they did to Diablo 3. Blizzard go to hell
