[IGN] Blizzard Will Make a ‘Special Announcement’ at Gamescom [UPDATED] - Page 7

Of course they're going to announce new features regarding D3.
World of Warcraft expansion will be reserved for blizzcon, so will any news regarding Titan.

Considering how little they have told us about their Titan project before, I seriously doubt we'll get to hear anything about it anytime soon as development on it basically went back to scratch not too long ago.

I suspect Titan is either of two things:

1. Just a sandbox of the creative department in whole. The place all new ideas form. It's not specific to anything in particular, they just enter it to explore their wildest ideas. Otherwise, it might be more targetted, e.g. "explore an engine for an FPS MMO and then come back to me". That kind of thing. etc.

2. Nothing. Just a buzzword to create false publicity. "We got nothing, but tell them we got something".

I suspect it's something like the 1st. Or at least a version where "the next game" just changes shape all the time.

Are you aware of "debian sid"? Something like that, though not exactly. More like experimental, and without a common arch.

Alright, so it's something for Diablo. Cool. The real question that I'm wondering about is why are they jumping the gun by 3 months and announcing something at gamescom rather than waiting till November for their Blizzcon. Does that mean it's so insignificant that they don't feel like its worth waiting till Blizzcon? Or is it so big it deserves its own annoucnement. If that were the case wouldn't that make for a weak Blizzcon?

My bet is it's something small and that they really didn't think it was worth waiting till Blizzcon to announce. Oh well.

Or they will announce speculated 'something' that is coming out around November so they can start hyping everyone up again.
It's been their campaign for a long time, letting people do the advertisement for them. Remember D3 pre-release hype? It might be something little indeed, but with enough whispering around it gets people back in the game.

To hell with our simpleton thinking. tongue.gif I watched my friends overhype each other. One read an article about a couple of fixes, it all started as 'meh'. Three days later 'meh' progressed into a discussion often leading to arguments. A week and a half later they were urging to play the game they couldn't be bothered to log on to only 10 days ago.

Their announcement might be that they've hired people who can actually program.

This. The Expac would have to be a totally different game at this point for me to care at all. Blizzard aren't what they used to be. I've been unsubbed from WoW since Feb and have no desire to go back. We'll see if the new Expac for that turns out cool and if it goes F2P. I kinda feel bad for them, almost.

How about another D3 port for mobiles and tablets.
They've bastardized the game enough by now that they might as well go all the way.

It is not Titan. Titan was scrapped and virtually started over from scratch recently. They moved most of the dev team off the game and hired new lead designers. The current estimate for Titan now is 2016.

It's definitely the WoW expansion. It's the exact time frame, they likely already copywrited the name somewhere. They've been using companies in other countries because people leaked the name "Mist of Pandaria" before it was announced. They already announced the upcoming raid will be the last one in MoP. That's not to say they won't announce the WoW expansion and then something else.
Quote:
We’re making a special announcement that’s sure to capture the attention of the Heavens, Burning Hells and all the shadowed places that lie between.”

The next WoW expansion points towards the Burning Legion, so this also adds up. While this could also point to D3, the D3 expansion is likely further away judging by how long the SC2 expansion took. If they do announce the D3 expansion, they'll also be announcing the WoW expansion most likely.

See, I love blizzard games but it takes too dang long for them to push out a product that it becomes antiquated to the point where they have to go back to the drawing board. Work on Diablo III first began back in 2001 and was announced in 2008. Imagine all the work and rework they had to do to bring a 2001 game up to 2009 ish standards.

A bit off topic but with the Titan being reset back to the drawing board, knowing blizzard, they probably began work on that game back in 2007 or so and then saw Destiny was so close to their idea and better implemented that they're going back to the drawing board to "update" their game.

Just my 2 cents rolleyes.gif
