So I know I’ve been talking a lot about Blizzard’s Mists of Pandaria. But there is one more thing regarding Blizzard that has recently surfaced, well not surfaced but been highlighted by IGN and Curse Entertainment’s interview with Blizzard.
Blizzard is in the making of their new MMORPG, called Titan. Recently they’ve talked a little about the development stages of Titan. It’s been in development for about 6 years now, but only 4 years ago did they start core development. What sort of magnificent game takes 6 years to create?
In 2007 there was speculation about a “top secret” game by Blizzard on an Internet forum. It was referred to as the next-gen MMORPG, but after that it went dark. The games title was unintentionally released in November 2010. The news that Blizzard was looking for developers was also leaked at the same time. In 2011 Blizzard said that they’re having their most experienced developers working on the project. An experience but small and growing team according a recent interview with Curse Entertainment. In 2012 we’re now looking at around 100 developers on the project and it being close to full production mode. However, there’s no indication to say that it’s right around the corner, there’s still a lot to be done according to Blizzard. All that we know for sure is that Titan is almost in full production mode but no where near close to release.
Blizzard has guaranteed that the new MMO will not be a competitor with World of Warcraft, and will be able to function alongside Blizzards other giant. Because Blizzard basically set the benchmark for MMORGs with WoW, it’ll be interesting to see what “completely new experience” they’ll bring to the table with Titan.
