If it's something they didn't like then good for them. No sense in risking screwing up two MMOs. Now they have no reason to not focus more effort into WoW.

Hearthstone was built in a CAVE with a box of SCRAPS!

*Pre-cancelled. At this point, Blizzard also hypes their cancellations.

No it was originally stopped then went back into the very early stages. It had basically been reset but now they have fully cancelled the title.

I believe he thought you meant Heart of the Swarm, which is what I thought people were also stating, then it clicked when I read your post he was responding to.

We have a winner. You have earned 50 Picarats. But seriously, i wonder how legacy of the void is doing.

Nope! And that pisses me off.


Anyway, two thoughts on this:

One, while I almost certainly think it is just "politician speech" and hyping themselves up, I wonder what kind of "grand MMO super-huge project" they were making. If it is not politician speech, which it probably is.

Two, I laughed at Metzen's imagined fear of breaking the trust of the fans. You guys are a bit late to that party, it happened a couple of years ago. Though I suppose he might be talking about more than just lore, Blizzard still makes good games. Not as good as their Starcraft-WCIII period but still above average.

Warlock 09-23-2014 08:14 PM

Pretty much saw this coming. MMOs are basically dead (at least from a "you can throw anything out there and get a bazillion subscribers" perspective). Add to that the problems in development where the team was drastically cut short to "go back to WoW" - yeah...

Basically, they can no longer do this without cannibalizing WoW's ever-shrinking numbers, and without huge gains *over* WoW, so let's just stick with the thing we already have done and keep doing expansions? Yeah?

That said, they obviously put a LOT of time into Titan, it's possible they'll be able to leverage all that source material into a different game. Afterall, WarCraft Adventures and StarCraft: Ghost still "happened" (in the lore), even if those games never game out. I doubt they'll just throw that work away, at least not when they've spent *this* much time on the project (though I know they have thrown some work away on past cancelled projects - but what they've shown of that seemed very "hey I have this idea that would be cool" rather than "We just spent X years working on this...")

Anansi 09-23-2014 08:16 PM

But what IS the source material for Titan?

Our hopes and dreams of The FUTURE.

Sonneillon 09-23-2014 11:01 PM

I do hope the cannibalize it for a new IP.

Omacron 09-23-2014 11:37 PM

CDev had some cool plans for new methods of storytelling that they were looking to experiment with rolling out in a new IP (that's how I gleaned bits and pieces about Titan, that and occasionally using company-wide search protocols to double-check lore about the Warcraft titans and coming across stuff I wasn't supposed to see) and I hope those strategies are repurposed for existing IPs.

Odok 09-24-2014 03:56 AM

Eh, for the best. Hopefully the break will give the dev team a second wind in WoW and their other games, and introduce some of these new concepts that Omacron is talking about.

Wonder if the whole WoD dev hiccup was due to talent hired for Titan getting suddenly moved to WoW. That'd cause a clash in design direction for sure.

Some bullshit 'secret project' Blizzard started teasing a few years ago. It was supposed to be a new MMO of some kind.

SmokeBlader 09-24-2014 11:57 AM

Looks like Lev was right about Destiny being the final nail in the coffin.

Insane Guy of Doom 09-24-2014 12:12 PM

So Titan was going to be WoW meets Team Fortress 2 meets Skryim meets Halo?
