Blizzard’s Project Titan “Unlikely to be Subscription-based MMORPG”
Currently, the studio is busy with more immediate projects such as WoW and Blizzard All-Stars.
Despite a sizable loss of subscribers for World of Warcraft in recent months, Blizzard Entertainment is still surging forward. Of course, the developer is busy trying to craft a new experience with Project Titan, but that was recently delayed and most of the dev team shifted to other projects. When will the game be released, if ever?
In a recent investor’s conference call, Blizzard head Mike Morhaime said that it would be a long while since the studio is looking at any “new direction for the Titan. He did note that it is “unlikely to be a subscription-based MMORPG” and that the studio is upholding a “commitment to quality” by shifting resources to other more high-priority projects like World of Warcraft, Blizzard All-Stars and the upcoming Hearthstone, a free-to-play iPad title.
Till then, one will have to take comfort that they won’t be playing as pelts in the game with NPCs attempting to collect you.
