Since WoW, Blizzard stuff is utterly disappointing. Good article but I wouldn't touch Titan if it would be free. But like all other games from Blizzard, I suspect "free" is the only feature this game has not to offer. Just for me, they can remake the game every two years :D

Because most sold copies where pre-orders and trough a year sub on WoW. A game can sell millions and still be a failure. D3 is a failure as it didn't manage to deliver to the expectations. Its not him being unbiased, its how the community received the game. Many people where very disappointed with the result and how Blizzard had made some poor choices with the game. Aliens Colonial Marines sold very well too, still it was a huge failure for the many bugs, a total different engine then was shown to the press and in screenshots/trailers, etc.

 

About Titan, i wouldn't expect to see any information, screenshots and trailers before they released the last expansion for WoW. The news that Titan was in development was there before Diablo 3 was even announced or around the same time. Blizzard for now wants people all to focus on the MMORPG they already have and sell as many expansion copies as possible. WoW also has a 10 year life span as they said when WoW was released. So untill next year or the year after i wouldn't exspect to much info. In all these years we didn't hear a thing about Titan beside that it was being made and that it wasn't gonna be WoW 2, Starcraft online or a Diablo MMORPG.

 

I guess they hit the reset button cause its been in production for far to long meaning the engine is probably way to outdated and the MMO genre has shifted. My bet is that combat was pretty much like WoW where these days people want more real-time action styled combat. Though I'm slightly worried, cause they also said that Titan was gonna be more social focused. I wonder what the reset will have as consequences. Cause with more focus on the social aspect i imagined that the players had more influence on the world.

So the 12m sales after launch are a failure ?  That's 12m sales that WERE NOT from the wow sub crap.   Your opinion is biased and you're stating false facts to try and prove its not.    The game continues to sell well to this day it is the number 1 selling PC game that is NOT a failure just because the MINORITY yes MINORITY didn't like it doesn't mean it failed.  

If you were an investor in Blizzard D3 is the biggest success they have ever had not named WOW.

 
Do you even know the sales figures or just writing ignorantly blind to actual facts ?

D3 was and is a failure, sale figures don't mean anything (at least not to a gamer).

People bought into the hype and that's it. One of the most anticipated games of all time, of course it sold well. The problem is, it didn't deliver.

And you can also look it from the point-of-view of lost future sales, because I for one, haven't bought a Blizzard product since, and won't. Simple as that.

Since 2016 is the earliest estimate for Titan at this point they have time to get it done right. It's best for them to realize it now before a release where the players sub & quit in no time at all. I see myself buying yet another Collectors Edition when Titan is finally announced down the road if available & if I still care but whether or not I can be charmed into paying monthly fees again with B2P & F2P titles popping up so much remains to be seen. Three years is a lifetime in the mmo universe.

Vivendi has put the feelers out to to see who might e interested in buying Blizzard for the sole reason their other ventures have caused a cash flow issue and selling Blizzard will make it all ok,

The reason no one has shown interested is likely the price and that Blizzard will not doubt come with all kinds of conditions such as "Blizzard have full creative control", "blizzard decide what they want to create and how long they support it", "Blizzard will remain a separate entity" and to most companies such as EA for example "they" want this control, but Blizzard wont budge on that issue.

WoW still generates over 1 BILLION dollars in subs alone per year. That makes the idea of buying them now for a few tens of millions of dollars seem completely out of kilter with economic reality.

Titan has been in development hell for too long. Chances are the world outside has overtaken the original remit that Titan had.

Titan, to MMO players, was scotch mist. A game with no subject, no gameplay, no concept. I'm sure somewhere in a dark room someone knew what it was - but in the real world it was never more than just a name.

The idea of it being a "casual MMO - drop in drop out" put more people off than anything. Most MMO players are as far from "casual". Even those that claim they are casual tend to put in 8-10 hours a week. Titan in that respect began to look like a free Facebook game.

By the time it comes out - the chances of it living up to it's legend (and it is already almost a legend - amazing for a game we know so little about - but maybe that's at the core of all the best legends...) it will not live up to expectations. It may be good - but it won't live up to hype.

Diablo 3 must be a factor.

I reckon they were thinking of funding titan using the real money auction house. The failure of this feature in d3, and its effects on the game, such as crappy itemisation and making it a gold grinding chore, followed by the backlash have led them to have to rethink how they will fund the thing.

Most of the important developers at vanilla wow quit the job so they cant make anything as good as that.

logically the game's been in development quite a long time and though it was built from the ground up, the mechanics probably look and feel dated. Honestly I am sad in this development, but it is probably the best for blizzard at the time. Since there is some huge competition upcoming this year such as EverQuest next, Elder scrolls online, and wildstar. I believe blizzard did this  in a cool calculating way allowing these titles to flush out new ways of doing things and new mechanics. To be quite honest I believe we will still see the return of tab targeting and the holy Trinity since the great reception of neverwinters  class mechanics reinvigorating the holy Trinity. Now to speak about subscription base I personally hope for a hybrid pay model to succeed all of these free to play games. Reason being is that it allows for much more updated contents and a tighter grip on the handles of gold sellers and  account security. I don't believe a strict by the box and subscription-based model is feasible at this time but a subscription base is needed due to so much money going into account security and eliminating so many cheats as this has become big business these days. Though disappointed with blizzard's decision to pull off so many developers I am 100% behind blizzard in not forcing a game to release, we definitely have seen way too many of these push to release for the greenback and  the gamer suffers due to poorly developed content and large payments for a game that just cannot stay around long.

I've tried other games, but I always come back to WoW.....but I can safely say this......if EQNext is anything like the original EQ, with perhaps some of the town/crafting elements of UO, I would be outta there in a heartbeat. EQ was my first love. I have gone back to play it several times. The only reason I ever quit is because endgame wise, it is far too hard to attempt to catch up to the cutting edge raiding guild there at this point. If they made it as easy to catch up as WoW did, I probably never would have come back to WoW at all. If EQNext launches and is good, it will finally put down WoW......and let's face it.....to all of you saying WoW beat Everquest.......you obviously never played Everquest.......because WoW IS Everquest, just dumbed down and oversimplified. The problem is now, you cannot make another EQ, because people want epic gear handed to them on a silver platter with barely any real input from them.
 
I remember playing EQ back in the Planes of Power days. I was in a Time raiding guild. It literally took you weeks and weeks to level a toon to top level, and once you got there, you could de-level dying in raids. There was a real sense of "If you're gonna be here, you need to know what you're doing, because if you fail, we all suffer". We need that again. That should weed out the 14 year old d bags. Real fast.

Im currently playing Darkfall because you acualy need to work towards higher end stuff such as boats and cities, not to mention there no instancing at all which is a major + for me, Will be playing this till EQNext comes out i reckon.

I suspect they just got in over their heads with Titan, so to speak.  It's like when a 6 year old describes their ideal make-believe toy.  They start with a basketball and end up with a basketball that can fly, gives you superpowers so you can slam dunk, comes with a complete wardrobe, and makes you waffles when you're sleeping.  9 years is a long time.  After 9 years of brainstorming and adding ideas, I suspect the game was looking a lot like the Winchester mansion with doors that lead to nowhere and a maze of misshapen corridors.  Maybe they lost focus and needed to get back to basics to streamline the game and get it back on track.

Yeah because it is the only one game WOW which contributes to their profits as a company right?

I've become dependent upon spell check. My apologies for stupid grammatical errors.

Blizzard's development process is so slow that the entire MMO landscape has changed since they started writing the game. F2P wasn't a major payment model, LoL and DOTA weren't the most played games ever, even considering a sandbox feature, much less a sandbox game was stupid and MMOs were not a gamble. Blizzard rewrites and shelves things when the market doesn't really change, it's amazing they haven't rewritten or changed Titan before now.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.
