Rumors overgrown and almost seven years to develop the game Titan, which in theory was to replace the immortal World of Warcraft was officially closed and sealed. In the beginning of the hovering just grabbing, but then Blizzard itself has recognized that the work be stopped.
In an interview with Polygon page, the company Blizzard co-founder, current CEO Mike Morhaime explained that in spite of many years of accumulated experience and skills in the area of the MMO, Titan project is not everything went as expected.
"We have created a World of Warcraft, and we were confident that we understand how to create an MMO. Therefore, we decided to create the most ambitious game, he could imagine. However, something went wrong. We thought a lot about whether in fact we get a game of our dreams. The answer was short - no, - said Mike Morhaime.
True, it is nothing to be sad, because Titan has not been officially announced back in, you do not break under any detail on. The last official news will be published in 2013. May. Then Blizzard reduced the development team, it can be assumed that at the time the company realized that Titan does not appear so.
Looking at Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, StarCraft II, Diablo III, and with the same popularity of World of Warcraft (though declining) can ask a question, but why not create an additional MMO if there is such a solid luggage? Mike Morhaime said that they saw no need to give up the MMO genre, so you can guess that the Titan is placed in a drawer until better times.
Currently, Blizzard is preparing for the annual conference of BlizzCon. This year it will take place in early November, and, as has become customary, all waiting for the famous announcements. Attention is now confined to the StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void - the latest and last addition of StarCraft II, which will plot the point of the trilogy.
