MMO-Champion - Blizzard Registers Project Blackstone Domain
Blizzard Registers Project Blackstone Domain
Fusible noticed that ProjectBlackstone.com was recently purchased by Blizzard Entertainment. It doesn't mean much yet but the choice of domain name could point to a side project for Diablo 3 or even pet battles (They also appear to have purchased WarcraftBattles.com last month).

We're mostly reporting this to have a nice point of discussion for it, but nothing really points to it being a major project (= probably not anything Titan related).

    Isn't Titan rumored to be an MMOFPS? If so, the connotations for "project" goes well with sci-fi, and to an extent, feasible to be a shooter game.

    No its not. Please stop with this. Was something boub said in one sentence years ago and taken as gospel but he got it wrong.

    Well, I was agreeing that Project Black Stone would have something to do with hype over D3 PvP. Now that I know it's not the only domain registered, I'm agreeing even more.

    The whole 'project' has likely nothing to do with the eventual name of the game but it just an (internal) code for the new what ever it is.

    The "Project" part of it doesn't mean anything special. Most games start under "Project (insert codename here)". Fable for example, was originally Project Ego if i remember correctly, didn't mean it was going to be 'sci-fi' or have anything to do with 'experiments'.

    Blizzard has never revealed a new game at a Blizzcon event, only xpacks. Both SC2 and D3 were revealed at seperate events. And in both years there was Blizzcon also.

    It really all depends on how much content of Titan they have to offer fans/customers to keep them eager for more, those two games were announced years ago, their practices may be different now. I can see it being announced next year either before Blizzcon or at the event itself.

    If they want to up the hype, announcing it a few months before and then providing more information at Blizzcon would probably be the way to go. Assuming hype is what they're after; they might not be.

    It is not the last expansion blizz would do, it is THE LAST THING blizz would do with the entire Warcraft franchise. Sargeras is dead, Warcraft is dead, forever.

    And why would they kill their main asset off? Like ever?

    They will not kill the Warcraft franchise. Thus, they will not kill off Sargeras. Ever.

    After WoW is done, Warcraft will still be used in other formats/platforms/media/whatevs that the future might bring.

    Not true. they create the lore, they created Sargeras, they can create someone else to kill and another story to explore. Warcraft doesnt die with Sargeras, thats ridiculous. Even if he is dead and as you said, they cant move forward, they can go backward. its called a prequel.

    Unless the Old Gods turn out to be more powerful than Sargeras.

    After all Sargeras turned on the Titans because he thought that the chaos that existed before the Titans interfered is the universe's true nature and should remain so.

    The Old Gods are chaos itself.

    Anyway, has anyone checked Diablo's main site? There is an interactive demon skull on top of the "Forums" panel that I don't remember being there before.
