The fact that you say it being a new IP(confirmed by Blizzard), is less confirmed than it being a FPS(pure fan speculation) shows that you cannot school anyone even with the facts blatantly out there for you to see.

Maybe Destiny is the Dust 514 to Titan's EVE online?
As a serious statement though, there are ways they can create a new IP but stay within the realm of their currently established ones. It's not really uncommon either. Realistically we would call it a spin off....but that would give too much away too early. Some examples of new IPs from existing IPs would be how they made the show Torchlight from pieces of the Doctor Who universe. Sure it shares some backstory and characters, but the elements that make up the IP are radically different than Doctor Who.
It would be like Starbucks creating juice shops. Sure they still make beverages, but it's not the same thing.
Blizzard could easily do this with Starcraft by going many years forwards or backwards from where the games show them to be. You wouldn't have characters from any of the games, protoss and zerg probably wouldn't exist other than myths/easter eggs, and it wouldn't be centered around military campaigns relevant to gameplay in Starcraft. It could be a FPS, it could be action combat, it could honestly be anything.
I guess the same could be done for Diablo, if you fast forward so many years that the Nephalem are dead legends, magic has ceased to be common, and that world progressed into a science based future. Maybe technomagic if you wanted to keep some fantasy elements.
Whatever the case, it's fairly easy to establish a new IP with a basis on something else. I guess this is why people are so eager to believe it's nothing new. Idk.

Modern gaming apologist: I once tasted diarrhea so shit is fine.
"People who alter or destroy works of art and our cultural heritage for profit or as an excercise of power, are barbarians" - George Lucas 1988
Take that for what it's worth. It doesn't really mention anything about WoW, but was basically a failed power play for his team. I also chuckled when the article mentioned Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 in 2007. Lol.
I don't know why people claim Roper is so amazing. He hasn't done anything great since he left Blizzard. Clearly it was more than his talent that was making him successful. I am highly critical of Disney's decision to hire him for the head of their game division. After the recent busts they've been having there, it's a very odd choice indeed to pick someone who hasn't proven worth in almost a decade.
He must have had some really amazing ideas or laced their drinks with PCP.

Could it not be a 'warcraft' mmo but instead about the war between the titans and the burning legion? thats not warcraft, warcraft was between orcs and humans.
Whatever it's going to be, due to all speculation it will not live up to the peoples expectations.
So in other words, you could say it will suck.
Now onto the subject of Titan itself:
Blizzard allrdy has 3 "mmo's" with different genres: WoW, SWtor2, and Diablo, so lets assume it has nothing to do with either of them as they claim. It wont be involving intergalactic stuff, hellish demons and shit from diablo, Horde/alliance, orcs, humans, panda's etc.
What are titans? We all know they were the gods that created azeroth. However, wiki has this about it:
"In Greek mythology, the Titans (Greek: Τιτάν—Ti-tan; plural: Τιτᾶνες—Ti-tânes) were a primeval race of powerful deities, descendants of Gaia (Earth) and Uranus (Heaven), that ruled during the legendary Golden Age. They were immortal huge beings of incredible strength and stamina and were also the first pantheon of Greco-Roman gods and goddesses. In the first generation of twelve Titans, the males were Oceanus, Hyperion, Coeus, Cronus, Crius and Iapetus and the females - the Titanesses - were Mnemosyne, Tethys, Theia, Phoebe, Rhea and Themis. The second generation of Titans consisted of Hyperion's children Eos, Helios, and Selene; Coeus's daughters Leto and Asteria; Iapetus's children Atlas, Prometheus, Epimetheus, and Menoetius; Oceanus' daughter Metis; and Crius's sons Astraeus, Pallas, and Perses." (haha uranus)
So going on that, and the fact that it will have nothing to do with wow, swtor and diablo, i think it will be a MMO RPG, focused around the greek/roman era. With several factions (greek, spartans, perzians, etc.) and several world bosses based on old mythology (Hades, etc.). There will be homestead options (thats why they tried tillers farm), and a big open world with myhological creatures because of a BS story along the lines of: "Titans are pissed, they pee down on us from heaven and they unleash stuff on the earth".
Im the first that stated this, so credit me if im right in about a year. Cheers

*HEAR YE HEAR YE! Ye Olde Mackus Donaldus hath created a divine ambrosia of meat for thine tongue. Come whet your appetite with the new McSpartan. 4 stones of freshly slaughtered calf roasted over a sacrifical pyre between two wheat loaves dipped in lambs blood. Only 3 stones for the next fortnight!*
EX: Starcraft 2's code name was Medusa. Diablo 3's was Hydra. Etc.
Blizzard just has a thing for Greco-Roman mythology when it comes to throw away names.
Some would ask
"How could a perfect God create a universe with so much that is evil?"
They have missed a greater conundrum
"Why would a perfect God create a universe at all?"
I really hope its not an fps... we have too many fps on the market as it is. And the last thing I want is another game to cater to the CoD crowd just because that sort of thing is popular.
I woulnt mind a modern day scenario game. But not in first person, maybe a third person action rpg, something new, blizzard have already proved they are kings of the RTS, I wouldn't mind seeing them put their cut on something fresh.
