    I am hoping that Titan will be an MMO that alters its environment based on the actions of the server. This isn't a new concept since WoW does alter environments with patchs and xpacs and GW2 has world events can manipulate the surroundings. I am imagining this concept taken to an extreme level. One where the actions of players and their guilds will shaped the layout of the Titan world to the point where individual servers are nothing alike.

    Using Warcraft as a template, imagine playing on a server where Stormwind was destroyed by Deathwing; a server where the Scourge retake the Undercity; a server where Hillsbrad is still under Alliance control. I know they were time consuming, but events like the opening of AQ made you really feel like you were a part of a community. I think the next gen of MMO needs to make the environment and server just as much of a living, changing entity as the player himself/herself.

    Maybe, "Titan" means that we will play as the god-like toons who shape the world around us.

    But I think we should probably stick to what blizzungie has said. This is probably a 3rd person shooter mmo, aimed at casual play, that takes place in the destiny universe.

    :P

    Watch it happen.

    Read #4 "With Broad Appeal". It talks about what you're saying.

    Also, can we please post this when someone says Destiny = Titan?

    I can tell you that if this turns out to be an MMOFPS, I will have zero interest in it. Still crossing fingers for Diablo MMORPG.

    Why has nobody mentioned this?

    Titan, The Fighting Fantasy World
    Map of Titan

    Titan was a world created in the 1980's by two guys called Steve Jackson and Ian Livingsone and set in a series of books for children. I was a huge fan and have the whole collection in my cellar. Today, both authors are now Computer game developers and both of them have received CBE's for their work AND both of them have WORKED FOR ACTIVISION in the past.

    Could these guys be working in conjunction with Blizzard and Activision to bring this world to life??? I know it's another Fantasy world, but it would be a damn fine one.

    there could be a link but i don't think so

    blizzard start working on titan before the merge with activision, so it's unlikely they could have contact with those authors.
    beside, titan is so common and used term, it just could be anything.
    Finally, Titan is an internal code name, not necessary the final name of the game, though it became so popular nowaday that blizzard could probably bank on that name

    Probably because we already have confirmed information that it's going to have current product advertising integrated into the game, which means that it can't be set in some non current, fantasy world. Unless you think they are just going to slap electronic billboards in the middle of a fantasy world, akin to having a McDonald's commercial play inside of the Stormwind Bank.

    It could be some mixture of cyberpunk and fantasy where real-world/future meets fantasy elements. The one thing we know is that we don't know.
    The less you know, the more you believe.


    Actually, Mr. Lennon, I CAN imagine a world with no hate, religion, war, or violence.
    I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.

    Orly? They never said it was a new IP? Shall I link you one of the very first interviews with the Blizzard employees about Titan then? Cause I watched it 2 hours ago and he clearly said it was a new IP

    People need to stop using the term ''IP''. It's misleading and it's also not what anyone at Blizzard said.

    I'm confused that you posted that quote, and a link that conflicts your own post about it not being a new IP.

    Well, a lot of the rumors just got answered, but not in a way that people might be happy with. The biggest rumors were that Bungie was in on it, because they signed a 10 year deal with Activision, and people know Bungie works on space fantasy games.

    Well with this:

    http://destiny.bungie.org/

    That fills in a lot of those rumors, and it is not likely to be project Titan. But it is what Bungie signed a 10 yr contract to make, and it is a new IP space FPS.
    Still bitter.

    Why would you even post this and not post the video?

    the term ''IP''
    Now go and read what I quoted again and point out where he says the term "IP".

    He doesn't. They don't.

    The term intellectual property can mean several things. It can mean exactly what Zarhym said, brand new franchise with lore created from scratch. It could also mean separate entries in the same franchise that have different titles (ex: The Burning Crusade, Wrath of The Lich King, etc. are all legally separate IPs), but that isn't what Zarhym (or other blues) have said.

    And people have been theorizing that Titan could be a new installment based on "the fact that Blizzard said it would be a new IP". But Blizzard didn't say that. Other people have simplified what they said by saying that.

    Titan and Hearthstone are two different things. And if you want to request a thread locked for one reason or another, report it, don't post in the thread.

    Hearstone and Titan is two different games, this is a known fact by now. Mostly comes down to blizzard stating that it would be a new franchise and heartstone being based upon warcraft, the source for that you can find by just scrolling up on this very page.

    Oh come on guys. Today any kind of misinformation should be allowed and treated as a joke (if it's not offensive or racist etc.), grow some sense of humor already or just don't aggro on trolls.
    It may be not the best joke but atleast OldSnail wasn't rude.

    Exclamation

    ..And we were meant to know this all along. It had been hinted at so transparently :

    Jeff Kaplan, one of the most pronounced Game Designers in Activision Blizzard when asked whether Titan will be Sci-Fi, Near-Future, Post-Apocalyptic or Historical responded “All of these combined” with a smile.

    Of course, Assassin's Creed, but also the God of War, Prince of Persia, Tomb Raider, Fate/Stay Night & even Lost Vikings franchises' success come to mind as obvious sources of inspirations for this theme.


    :: SOURCES ::

    ~Titan targets a broader audience than WoW~

    "Bobby Kotick sometime last year, admitted that Titan is being designed to target a somewhat broader audience. Whether that’s an age-wise broader audience, or an interest - wise broader audience (or a combination of the two), we don’t know. In my opinion both are welcome! Diversity never hurts! Younger gamers will want to focus on different aspects of the game while mature players might focus on more difficult scenarios, tackling harder situations that require a different approach. On the other hand we have players that prefer a more medieval setting, others that fancy powerful lasers, spaceships and aliens in a more futuristic setting and others that dig modern day warfare, with rifles, machine guns, tanks, the whole nine yards... How though, does one embed all these things in one game? That leads us to the next subject."

    ~The Time Travel Scenario~

    "There’s only one way for a game to cover so many settings and that is indeed time travelling. Jeff Kaplan, one of the most pronounced Game Designers in Activision Blizzard when asked whether Titan will be sci-fi, near-future, post-apocalyptic or historical responded “All of these combined” with a smile. Whether that’s true or false we cannot know for sure at this time, but it’s our best hint towards time travelling. It makes sense after all. It is indeed a great point of diversity within the game itself adding to the goal of a generally broader audience! Everyone grab a DeLorean!!!"

    http://www.blizzardnewmmo.com/ ~> RIGHT THERE on the main page. Why? Simple, it's single-handedly the 2nd most valuable, precise, telling piece of information there is (right after "not an existing Blizzard IP/Franchise") we've had in the speculation toolbox to proceed with elimination of possibilities
    & narrow down predictions.

    Agreed, sophisticated hoaxes & tin-foil absurd rumors are worth letting live in virtue of their satirical awesome ;p

    Titanfocus has a bunch of supposed leaks- not confirmed, could even be a late April Fools joke, but worth posting in case it does turn out to be real (and it certainly seems believable after reading the above post about time travel). Supposedly it's a time travel-focused game set on Earth, with a lot of ancient mythology influences.
