    I wrote at length on this site 2-3 years ago about how Titan would be the next incarnation of a WOW MMO despite them saying it wouldn't be. Quite simply, to make a game of the scope of Wow would take years and years and there has to be a Wow 2, if not it's commercial suicide - you can't just let a game like that fade (look at everquest 1 - 2, GW 1- 2 etc). It's one of the biggest games ever seen yet it came out at a time just before mobile devices would be able to accommodate it correctly and consoles weren't brought into the plan. Now they will put the whole thing on a much much larger scale so that you can live in the game outside of being in front of your pc, console etc. Every aspect will be next generation and it will be super polished, as one would expect.

    But to kill off the wow franchise by releasing these expansions with minor tweaks to the engine every few years? Nah. Not going to happen like that, Wow is much much too big a cash cow.

    A diabloMMO set a few hundreds years in the future of Diablo 3?
    You could still use the lore but it would give them more room to grow and would also stop it being too similar if they made it more steampunky which I think would work well in a more mature and darker enviroment that WoW can't really offer.

    You mean they would be like the Scourge of Warcraft? They were playable in the RTS, but became the main (or atleast a major) enemy in WoW. I guess that could actually work out, now we would just need to find reasons for the Terran and Protoss to fight each other.

    But I still say we need to have atleast 1 more major Starcraft title before going MMO, just to build and prepare things up :P

    I really hope it's a fantasy MMO, but I hope they don't go overboard with giant blue mushrooms or something like in GW2. I want it to be a serious, real world like how Skyrim is portrayed, that would be fantastic. Just put some Blizzard flavor into it, a blend of 80% realism and 20% Blizzard would be great.

    I'm not really inclined to trust a random guy on a forum just because he was fairly close when picking a release date for another game.

    Eh...I don't think so somehow. I'm sure he's partially correct about a few things, but overall, no, this is not what Titan is. Plus, if it's going to be on the Xbox, then it's going to be a FPS 100% guaranteed, if it's not, then not a single fuck will be given from Xbox users and Blizzard wouldn't have bothered. What we're talking about here is WoW 2.0 with shiny graphics and a Diablo theme. That's lame as fuck, but really, it's not going to happen, because it doesn't make any sense. Blizzard wants money. Money is good for Blizzard. To make money, that is the complete wrong direction. Moreover, Blizzard isn't allowed to tell anyone about it, they aren't going to tell some random guy anything about it, that would be called someone losing their job.

    I'll personally be very disappointed if this ends up indeed being true, Diablo indeed could make a good franchise for an MMO but I really, really want something different, and to me something like the basics of Borderlands converted into an MMO with some improvements is what would make me very happy...espcially one with a different take on questing and more encouragement for exploring the world at your own pace, for example. I don't know about anyone else but if we are going to get a new MMO, I want something different. I don't mind some fantasy elements but 99% of MMOs are pure fantasy and I'm kinda not giving a shit about them anymore.

    Exactly! Nothing he says is of any real worth. He's just theorycrafting like everyone else.

    An MMO that'd directly compete with WoW. Not going to happen. Whatever it's going to be, new Ip or not, it will not step onto WoW's toes. Anyone who thinks otherwise is, quite frankly, a fool.

    It will. And they already set in the quotes in this thread that it didn't take them long to get over it. WoW is fast becoming a relic. It's not timeless and they are realizing it. Don't be a fool yourself.

    As I've understood it he didn't mean Diablo-like, he meant "World of Diablo"-like. Meaning something like World of Warcraft, but with Diablo.

    I would be careful about making such bold claims.

    Here's what I would do if I was Blizzard:

    - Let WoW slowly die out, but prep it for a future WoW 2 release, so leave it on good terms (Not forcefully, just keep pushing out decent expansions, the numbers will slowly dwindle and most will move on to Titan)
    - Put out an expansion for Diablo 3 and fix as many things as possible, and give the fanbase some joy, after that I'd put it on the shelf for use at a much later time
    - Push out HotS and LotV expacs for Starcraft 2 and focus on making the E-sport grow
    - After that, develop an FPS for both consoles and PC based on Starcraft
    - Put the RTS team on Warcraft 4 and its expansions
    - Push Titan as Blizzard's flagship game for the next while

    It's not such a bold claim considering it comes from Blizzard. They've said on at least a couple occasions that they don't want the new MMO to directly compete with WoW. As such, it's very unlikely to have a medieval fantasy setting.

    Blizzard has said it's a new IP. They've even gone as far to hint at what kind of setting it will have (IE futuristic/historic/mythological/etc., all at the same time).

    if its based AFTER d3 that could work out pretty good, but it will need a lot of work to be different from being just a Diablo-ish WoW

    How about making it so you have to aim?

    That would be a good start.
    Lv30 (Warframe) - Zephyr - Boltor Prime - Lex Prime - Dakra Prime - Silver Hunter -
    Lv40 (Firefall) All Battleframes
    Lv60 (Neverwinter) - Rogue - Fighter - Wizard - Guardian - Cleric -

    I fear that we might never see a Warcraft RTS again

    I like MMO's, but its a pity that its going to mean less RTS games for me. I guess Blizzard ust didn't want to compete with themselves anymore with Warcraft and Starcraft, that must've been one of the reasons to convert atleast one of them into a MMORPG. I always prefered the Warcraft RTS to Starcraft

    My problem with the xbox 360 bit is that game companies are already getting leery about producing xbox 360 games when the next gen box is supposed to be out later this year.
    No not on xBox360... the nextgen xBox... also it'll be Starcraft MMO ! think of Starcraft Ghost !... something in that style but MMO !!

    Just thinking about a starcraft MMO gives me a raging ... well you know ... all that sci-fi goodness... although... a dark and gritty 18+(or at least 16+) diablo mmo has the same effect xD
