Back in May Blizzard revealed they were reducing the size of their development team working on their unannounced title Project Titan. Staff were being shifted to other projects while Blizzard went back to the drawing board with Titan.

In this evening’s Activision Blizzard financials conference call, CEO Mike Morhaime revisited their plans for Titan, the most interesting comment from Mike being that it’s “unlikely to be a subscription based MMORPG”.

Mike commented:

“We’re in the process of selecting a new direction for the project and re-envisioning what we want the game to be. And while we cant talk about the details yet, it’s unlikely to be a subscription based MMORPG. I also want to reiterate there has not been an official announced or projected release date.

What I can say is the commitment to quality has always been a the core of Blizzard values, and we’ve gone through this iterative process several times in the past on the way to creating genre defining games.

As we continue our assignments we have shifted some of the resources from the team to our other franchises including WoW and Blizzard All Stars which we believe will add immense value to those projects.”

So what will it be? Will it still be an MMO? A free to play MMO? We have no idea as this point but it sounds like Blizzard are trying to put pay to previous comments that it would appear in 2016.

The question is, will we actually care about the game by the time they announce more solid details? And no, it won’t be announced at BlizzCon this year in case you were wondering.

    I suspect it will be based on cosmetic purchases and product placement. Whatever it is I’ll have probably retired by the time it’s out and I’m only in my 20s.

      Awesome, that means it’ll be pay-to-win. I love these types of games, especially how they try to reach into my pocket after I’ve already purchased the game.
