It’s already the world’s worst-kept secret that Blizzard has been working on a new MMO – codenamed “Titan” – for the last couple of years, and now it looks like we’ll be waiting a couple more years until we can play it.
According to previous leaks, the game was expected to hit shelves and significant relationships this year or next, but the studio has now apparently decided to start the whole thing over – pushing the launch forward to 2016 “at the earliest”. Huge shocker? Thought not.
Anonymous flies on walls over at Blizzard HQ have told VentureBeat that the team assigned to the MMO has been reduced from 100 to 70 people, with everybody else moved onto other projects.
In an official statement on the matter, Blizzard spokesperson Shon Damron said that, “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.”
Technically, hey haven’t really announced anything much at all, so if you’re feeling disappointed, you have only yourself to blame. Bad you. Bad.
