"If it ain't broke...hit it harder."

8/06/12 1:35:02 PM#41

Based on grammar and research, I would like to recommend this article as being the worst ever posted to this website. No offense...

 

With that being said, the future of Blizzard rests in its longterm development of:

1.) Starcraft 2 installments --- there's at least two planned and unreleased.

2.) Diablo 3 expansions --- they'll give everyone a little time to cool off, but make no mistake, Adria still lives and I think I saw a soulstone in that last cut scene...

3.) Blizzard DOTA --- with the release of the Arcade Platform, Blizzard is primed to push out this new "F2P" MOBA competitor. The real question is whether anyone will care.

4.) MoP hasn't even released yet. I still qualify it as future. Will there be another Xpack afterwards? Sure...there's still 9 million people playing right now. Half of that is 4.5 million at $39.99 a copy...thats another $180 million in box sales if only half of current subscribers are still around and decide to buy it.

5.) Titan? As if the first 4 things I just listed weren't enough to keep ONE design house busy for the next 5 years. Everyone expects this to be the mothership. The big floating disc in the MMO sky that will take us all on the ultimate journey to the gaming land we have all been promised. I still have a glimmer of hope for this game...

It has been stated that this game is currently in a "playable" state, development entered full production this year, and it is not tied to any other intellectual property. If I were to speculate, I would guess we are looking at a "first or third person shooter" mmo. There have been successes and failures in this genre and knowing Blizzard, they will take it a direction that no one sees coming.

I tell you where there is a huge gap in the market, a space based mmorg like eve but with much stronger pve/ themepark and being able to land/ explore planets. With the money they have to invest, they could fill that gap- could be exciting.

rpg/mmorg history: Dun Darach>Bloodwych>Bards Tale 1-3>Eye of the beholder > Might and Magic 2,3,5 > FFVII> Baldur's Gate 1, 2 > Planescape Torment >Morrowind > WOW (1000 hrs on main mage)> oblivion > LOTR (480 Hunter) > Rift (230 hours mage) > Guild Wars (1900hrs elementalist) Vanguard. > GW2(900 elementalist), Wildstar

Now playing GW2, AOW 3, ESO

Quite remarkable that we have heard nothing more on this. Dont they get the fact that gamers are losing interest in the WoW property and that F2Ps are going to drag away more?  Mind you 9.1 MILLION is a lot of subscribers for such an aging property.

I am expecting a high-scifi PvE FPS experience. eg. Halo-esque environments with lots of "squads" squaring off against hordes of aliens and such. Lots of different planets with RTS tie-ins, and mini-games via social network sites and mobile platforms that impact auxilary game systems like crafting and such.

Hehe, I think the only way you could possible get sanbox fans to NOT play a new AAA sanbox is if it were to be made by Blizzard! LOL

New IP.

Huge, hulking game.

No one will expect it.

 

Project Titan will set in a "time-travel/dimension-travel" universe.  It will be fantasy and sci-fi.  Historical and futuristic.  Any world, any time.  

Essentially a Blizz version of Gurps.

Then those type of people really aren't sandbox fans are they. They are just bitter haters that nobody would want to have in their game in the first place. I know I wouldn't. Screw them and people like them.

I am really hoping Blizzard  will take a sandbox MMO into consideration. While most sandboxes aren't doing so well with their player bases, Blizzard could easily prevail, or fail. It's all up to how well they can adapt. I'm sure Blizzard has learned quite a lot with WoW, and they took some great concepts from earlier MMOs and games and meshed them together for a full MMO experience (at least for their time). WoW has the potential and funding to stay around for years to come, but I do not think they can keep their community flourishing. Blizzard will either shine, or ultimately fall behind in the MMO market. Time will tell.

Well we can speculate on the codename of "titan" as to what the game may be:
- mythical titans were huge and powerful.. So it could just reference what was said about it being huge
- titan is the largest Moon of Saturn.. So perhaps referencing a scifi post apocalypic scene where humans fled earth and colonized titan or something

As far as what it was said about titan being "all of them" as "historical, scifi, post apocalypic".. The only game that immediately comes to mind is Fallout series, one of the best RPG aeries ever and the rights to the FalloutMMO were the only rights not sold to Bethesda.. Could blizzard be working on the fabled Fallout MMO? If so, that would be amazing and probably the only thing to make me buy it.

As far as the little info in 4 years, blizzard is notorious for slow production... Diablo 3 and SC3 both took like 7 years to produce.. There was what, like a 4-5 year gap between WC 2 and 3 also I believe

I think Titan is just the working title and plays more to the ambition of the project in terms of size and scope.

We will likely hear an official title at the next BlizzCon. A title that is more appropriate for the actual premise of the game.

I hope it's an MMORTS, blizzard know how to do MMO and RTS, it's the perfect mix but I want a true persistant world, I want 3 factions, I want it to be PvP focused, I want planets with 100's of maps/sectors to fight over with maps/sectors changing hands all the time between the factions.

I want servers to have EU, US & Asia players on them so the fighting never stops - when EU players log off the US ones are logging in ready to continue the fight.  

I want log off one night with my faction controlling 70% of a planet earning massive resource so we can branch out and attack other planets and come back the next night and we're down to 20% cus the US guys sux and have to wrestle control back from the invading faction(s).

Ah to dream.

No your all wrong! They are going to get sued for false advertising and go down the dumps.  It still clearly states "Over 10 Million Players" in most of their advertising!

Been saying for a few years.  I woudln't be suprised if Blizzard is the company that shows the industry that there is a market for a well made sandbox MMO.  Another themepark, no matter the setting, is just going to compete with WoW, it just seems illogical to make another one.  Just look at SoE, why would people leave EQ2 to play Vanguard?  They didn't.

Trion isn't making mmo 2 and 3 the same as Rift, one's a shooter and the others an RTS.  They know you can't compete with yourself and win. 

Titan will either be a shooter, an RTS, or a sandbox, and my money is on sandbox.  It's the market that hasn't been tapped, or been treated properly yet.  If I'm a AAA developer and producer, and I want to diversify, and enter into a market that has no dominant player, I'm going to go sandbox before another AAA studio does.  They'll do to the sandbox market what they did to the themepark one.

What would they create a more adult and mature game (sandbox) when their target is clearly toward family home entertainment ? yes i know , except hard core gamers.

This behemoth is there to make money , not for "whistling in a violin" as we say in french. The Cie was for sale, 8 billion € , first price, nobody to buy it and finaly they decided to cancel the sell. Vivendi guys are all but MMOPRG lovers and  gamers. They are just a bunch of old fogies (froggies :) ) in suits and ties and i'm sure that Blizzard is not as free and independant as they want to let know and are probably under heavy pressure (see past team defections of founders).

Can I have your stuffz....???

What a great article!! Very well written. I have no views on Titan as of yet. I only know of two Titans, the first in the moon orbiting Saturn and the second is the mythical world I grew up with as a kid in Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstones roll-playing fantasy books. Anybody remember that Titan?

Nah your probally all too young. Now that would be an amazing world too see turned into an MMORPG!!
