Blizzard Entertainment is arguably the "king of the MMO hill" right now. In a new column, we take a look at potential next steps for the gaming giant. See what you think and then add your comments to the mix.

Love 'em or hate 'em, those guys and gals at Blizzard are still the incumbent monarchs of the MMORPG realm. World of Warcraft is now heading into its eighth year of existence, and with a few minor bumps on the road of subscription, the game is still holding firm with just under ten million loyal players.

I'd really love to, but I don't think so.

Titan will be either an FPS MMO (perhaps Call of Duty Online) or something heavily social, something like  Facebook + The Sims + Virtual World

This will be a brand new IP so it won't be a call of duty game.  I am holding out for a steampunk based mmo fps.

Sci-Fi mmo with WoW like mechanics. Something different from Fantasy is.....Sci-Fi. There is certainly room in that genre for an mmo. TOR is about the only thing worth playing in the Sci-Fi space. And even then its flawed. Just my 2c.

What We do know as of right now is very sparse. It will be a MMORPG. it will not be an MMOFPS. heavy on social aspect, and jeffery kaplan had this to say: 

"I think any type of [intellectual property] can survive. I'm shocked we haven't seen more sci-fi, near-future, post-apocalyptic, historical MMOs; there's all these completely different fantasy settings beyond the traditional high fantasy ones." So is Blizzard's new MMO going to be sci-fi, near-future, post-apocalyptic or historical? "All of those combined!" he said, laughing."

 We can't say it won't be a starcraft MMO but they have said it will be a completely new IP so SC is out. Futuristic Sci-Fi most likely with steampunk thrown in.

I have to say, they have taken a big gamble in announcing project titan so early in the development process. When the day comes when they reveal to the world what project titan is all about, people will react in one of three ways:

1. Forget GW2, this IS the "second coming" of not just mmo's (if it is an mmo) but of all gaming = FEAST

2. Are you kidding me?? All these years and you come up with this?? = FAMINE

3. A catch-all/in-beetween numbers 1 and 2 = Somewhere in between

I guess you could say I'm being obvious, of course making games is a risky business and it is impossible to please everyone. But I fear that Blizzard may be doing the same thing that Bio/EA did with SWTOR. No, I'm not comparing SWTOR with Project Titan. What I am comparing though is the "hype campaign" which characterized Bio/EA with their now shockingly dissapionting and very under performing SWTOR, to Blizzard's "hype compaign" of a game so early in development.

By announcing Project Titan so early in the development process and by building up the hype much like ESPN did with "king James", they are setting themselves up for either feast or famine. If I was in charge of Blizzard, I would have not announced anything about Project Titan and only said anything until we had something to show for it; that way the playerbase would have a better idea of what Project Titan is all bout and the hype would not either go crazy as it did with SWTOR or be so far out on the left field that it would not cause the reaction to be either feast or famine.

Just my opinion.

i really dontunderstand why blizzard hasnt got another mmo waiting if anything went wrong with wow

they could continue to develope it while waiting for world of warcraft to die

its not like they couldnt hire a whole team of devs  with the income they  had from  wow

its not like they couldnt see   new mmo's comming out 

even when age of conan came out people were asking for a new mmo  since then  funcom has developed the secret world

what has hapend to  blizzard  where is there new mmo

why dont they have a new mmo all set and ready for release

 

2015 is so far away  guildwars could have 3 expansions out by then  and it will be very hard moving from a mmo we all play   with no subs  to one that  is new with loads of bugs and  requires a sub the game would have to be amazing  just to have a chance

We don't know that project titan will require a monthly sub. 2015 is still a ways away. If GW2 does extremely well it may in fact effect how Blizzard work on Titan. If WOW appears to be declining faster than what it is now, they may release Titan early. If GW2 does extremely well and WOW appears to be unble to keep up, Blizzard may release Titan early in order to compete against it. Of course, key word in all those examples is "if". Until we get a better and more accurate understanding of exactly Project Titan actually is, all we have is just sepculation (hence the title of the thread haha).

I'll make a prediction. If Project Titan is in fact an mmo, it will not require a monthly sub; it will be a B2P game with a RMAH.

I believe Titans will be a sandbox mmo.

 

After developing themepark mmo for 8 years and counting, i believe they do realise that theme park end game is getting harder and harder to chun out.

So in order to make their life a litlle bit " easier", and to be able to have the best of both worlds, yet not collide with WoW, hint from vege growing in mop etc...

They will release a sandbox mmo.

Those that say blizz is thumping down the mmo genre, just need to look carefully at vannila wow :

  1. Running to level 40 till first mount
  2. Outdoor elite
  3. Outdoor dungeons (  Jintha'Alor  )
  4. Group quest ( escort quest )
  5. Very far graveyard
  6. Huge seemless continent
  7. Day and Night cycle
etc etc.....
 
there's still those old school hardcore elements in WoW
 
If iirc, its true that the old dev have gone over to create Titans, than be ready for something that is not only fun, but also may re-design sandbox mmo as we know it
 
 
  1.

As an ex-wow player, I actually hope so. Great games, no matter where they come from can only improve the genre as a whole. I truly hope Titan is huge and awesome, if not, then Blizzard will definintely get a lot of sh*t from the mmo playerbase.

Again, this is why I think Blizzad took an unneccessary gamble. By announcing Project Titan so early in the deveopment process and by hyping it, they are forcing themselves into a corner which will either be Feast or Famine. More than ever, for Blizzard's own sake (and future) they better deliver with Project Titan.

I hope it turns out TItan is a new, cutting edge, game with different ideas and not more of the same. I can't get excited about it though, because we've heard about it for years now. Once we can see some gameplay and more information about it in a few years, I guess then I'll see.

What happens when you log off your characters????.....

Not all of Blizzard's old devs have left to work on Titan. If I'm not mistaken, 3 of them left to make GW1, and two remain working on GW2. I also wondered why old-school Blizzard games were so good compared to now. I guess Ghostcrawler is also part of the problem ;-p

if speaking of Blizzard North, its spread out farther than that

 

4 went to anet  (altho Strain has since started a new studio, Undead labs)

3 went to Runic Games (Torchlight)

17 went to Carbine Studios (WildStar)

http://www.carbinestudios.com/en/news/carbine_studios_becomes_latest_member_of_ncsoft_family.php

one's leading the Marvel Universe mmo (Dave Brevik)

and Bill Roper, still at large, wanting to get involved w new mmo

Roper used to give some PR for WOW prelaunch

What Blizzard does, it better be sandbox and contain elements from ArcheAge, the repopulation, embers and others of the same ilk

Themepark as a singular focus is dead.

Yellow: please explain.

dimasok, essentially you are looking for a game that allows ganking newbs and complete pvp loot; amonst many other things. The kind of games you described may cater to the hardcore ganking player, but it does not appeal to the vast majority of the playerbase. Hence the mmo genre is full of themeparks and not sandboxes.

after diablo3 fiasco.

-and there was!

-Iam not sure we will be hearing anything about project 'Titan' until a release date, i think they have learned their lesson.

and they have so much work up the pipeline with current products, i dotn forsee an introduction anytime soon of this Titan.

thats just my opinion,
