    Thank you Mods for combining these, soon MMO-C will need to open up a Titan Forum Group.



    Actually they specifically said it is a New IP. aka Intellectual Property. Much like World of Warcraft was a New IP for Blizzard. Basically by saying IP they are saying nothing at all. If they said it was a New Franchise, that would mean what you think they said.

    Blizzard IPs (only titles under Blizzard)

    Blackthorne
    The Death and Return of Superman
    Warcraft: Orcs & Humans
    Justice League Task Force
    Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness
    Diablo
    The Lost Vikings II
    StarCraft
    Diablo II
    Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos
    World of Warcraft 2004
    StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty
    Diablo III
    Titan (project name)

    Basically an IP can not be an Expansion.
    Warcraft
    Starcraft
    Diablo
    Lost Vikings
    I guess Blackthorn too
    I think some racing game or something

    They don't own the Superman property, and individual games are just a part of an IP.

    Actually those are the franchises, each new game is it's own copyrighted I.P.


    Wiki Quote:
    Intellectual property (IP) is a legal concept which refers to creations of the mind for which exclusive rights are recognized. Under intellectual property law, owners are granted certain exclusive rights to a variety of intangible assets, such as musical, literary, and artistic works; discoveries and inventions; and words, phrases, symbols, and designs. Common types of intellectual property rights include copyright, trademarks, patents, industrial design rights and in some jurisdictions trade secrets.

    Basically each property that has a Unique Copyright is an I.P.

    Because they keep saying IP all they mean is the new game will have it's own Copyright and Trademark. It does not mean it is a new franchise. Now I would love to see a new franchise from Blizzard since for the last 14 years they have only made games for 3 franchises.

    As edge stated, the IP comes from the brand itself, the whole mass effect saga is an IP itself, not ME1-ME2-ME3
    Actually I was being purposeful and not including games made when Blizzard was called Silicon & Synapse. Since most of those games where licensed properties.

    ---------- Post added 2013-01-13 at 09:25 AM ----------

    Silicon & Synapse games
    RPM Racing
    Battle Chess (Windows and Commodore 64 ports)
    Battle Chess II: Chinese Chess (Amiga port)
    J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, Vol. I (Amiga port)
    Castles (Amiga port)
    MicroLeague Baseball (Amiga port)
    Lexi-Cross (Macintosh port)
    Dvorak on Typing (Macintosh port)
    The Lost Vikings
    Rock n' Roll Racing
    Shanghai II: Dragon's Eye

    The Lost Vikings was the only Game that Silicon & Synapse developed on it's own all the other games where ports and Licensed properties. (I.E. paid to make a game for someone else.)

    Even though they where licensed to make the game, they own the IP for that game unless the sold the rights to the game. Basically no one else can publish 'The Death and Return of Superman' unless Blizzard releases the rights to do so. Now of course Superman is owned by DC so for blizzard to republish the game DC would have to give approval.

    Well duh, that was totally surprising. I totally did not intend to point out the fallacy in the quoted statement that shooters have shooting and only RPGs have RPG elements. Something I even clarified in next sentence.

All I'm saying is, we're going to have a brilliant game once it's released, it may take some time before that day come, but it will be glorious

    The guy, who a year before anyone ever heard the name Titan was already speaking of a Project Titan being developed by Blizzard, and who claims to have contact to someone at Blizzard, says that Blizzard wasn't 100% honest about whether Titan is going to be a new IP. He says it's going to be a spin-off of an existing franchise. He hints that it might be Diablo-related. You can read his original posts in the article.

    edit: 2 things are frequently said by several posters.

    1. Blizzard said it's an original IP
    Yes, they did, but this topic is about how someone with an inside source claims, that this is not entirely true. If there wasn't at least something like this as a basis I wouldn't have made this thread. So please read the linked article.

    2. Where have they said it's an MMORPG?

    Here http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...-be-an-MMORPG?
    They will have real world adds in the game....so the claim of it being a world of diablo is farfetched. My guess would be an SC2 prequel :P

    Yeah that works both ways though.

    Having real world ads in any video game with fantasy lore would be farfetched... Do we even know if the game will absolutely 100% feature real world ingame advertising?

    Yes, I have. Tell me one mmo that has accomplished and maintained what WOW has for the past 8 years.
    Just because you and I perhaps don't find it fun anymore doesn't mean the game automatically becomes shit :P

    I said prequel, like the early years. when human went into real space exploration! And real world adds in SC2 is more credible than having them in New Tristram.

    From job post on the blizzard website: Work closely with the art leads to conceptualize signage, product identity, advertisements, corporate branding, and general graphic designs.

    Honestly, I would still rather the ads just be for some kind of "free to play" account. Let me pay my monthly fee and get a clean experience. If I have to pay $15-20/mo AND get inundated with real-world ads I'm gonna be a little pissed. 99.9% of ads don't work on getting me to buy anything, and usually will make me want to NOT buy it, actually.

    You're reading into that way too much. Nothing in that job listing even comes close to suggesting that there will be ads in game.

    only next gen mmo in preparation at blizzard is Titan right now, in game ads is a good source of revenu and just the description in the job post is saying a lot, it might not happen, but if they thinkof oding it it, this mean it is in our reality, SC2 is sci-fy in the really far future so ....it would be possible to but some of the real world brand into it.

    Personally I don't think blizzard would throw in advertisements all willy nilly like apps such as pandora.

    Probably someone already thought of it but maybe a real world theme. Add's signs will be on the roads something like that.

    Think of it as product placement as in movies but instead of the camera forcibly showing the Sony label on the computer or the Aston Martin car in James Bond you have the option to not look at them directly. I personally dont think that sounds bad at all, infact I think it sounds amazing.

    This I'll buy as in game "ads". The one posted earlier wasn't even close.

    Titan Concept Art? Or random art from Blizzard's Senior Artist?

    This is...fairly old (circa Sept '12) but I haven't seen much press on it.

    One of Blizzard's senior artists posted some images on his personal blog which are fairly detached from the Wow/SC universe. His art has become very cyberpunk in style...could this be the art style of Blizzard's next mmo?

    Kotaku Article

    His personal blog

    I suppose it is possible, sure. I don't think it particularly likely though. I would imagine that posting something like unreleased concept art would get him in quite a bit of trouble with Blizzard. Plus, even with the various releases Blizzard has put out, I do not recall any concept art ever being leaked early. So in my opinion the chances of this being a legitimate hint about Titan are close to zero.
    All this complaining is simply further proof that Blizzard could send each and every player a real-life wish-granting flying unicorn carrying a solid gold plate of chocolate chip cookies wrapped in hundred dollar bills, and someone would whine that Blizzard sucks for not letting them choose oatmeal raisin.

    This is Nick Carpenter (whose Cairne digi sculpt is amazing btw) but I'd say no, any similarity here with Titan would be superficial, you may be able to pick up on his style in the same way you can pick up on Warcraft's style in Samwise's non Warcraft art, but they would be very very very careful about leaking a single thing Titan in any way even on their private blogs. It's very nice though and shows how great Titan's art team lead is at,... arts.
