Blizzard Starting Over On Their Next-Gen MMO
Titan has been a codename flung around for several years now when anyone references Blizzards upcoming MMO. They’ve been working on their next great online title for a long time now, and yet we can’t really say we’ve seen anything significant. You wouldn’t be blamed for thinking it had been cancelled at one point or another, but Blizzard have confirmed that Titan, or whatever it’s being called now, is still being worked on. Thing is, they’ve rebooted development entirely.
The team working on Titan was small to begin with, just over 100 employees, but now Blizzard has reassigned 70% of that team to other projects, leaving the small remainder to work on new ideas and directions for Titan. Right now Blizzard is looking for developers to work on their “next-gen MMO”, which could come to PC and even next-generation consoles such as the Xbox One and PS4.

A Blizzard representative provided the following statement to IGN:
“We’ve always had a highly iterative development process, and the unannounced MMO is no exception. We’ve come to a point where we need to make some large design and technology changes to the game. We’re using this opportunity to shift some of our resources to assist with other projects while the core team adapts our technology and tools to accommodate these new changes. Note that we haven’t announced any dates for the MMO.”
Apparently, Titan has a tentative release window of 2016, which will probably end up being pushed back further as development begins all over again.
