    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
    "perfect" ? played WoW much ? LOL

    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

    SC2 having real world adds is ok?

    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.

    A few articles about the likelyhood of Blizzard including in-game advertising.

    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.

  12. #452
    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.

    This may not be concept art per-se for Titan, but it could be something like a mood board.

    God I can't wait until the actual unveiling of Titan so we don't have to see the same theories and articles get reposted again and again.

    Might've been said before, but a spin-off sort of counts as a new IP if it doesn't mention the copyrighted names and so on from the old IPs, or?

    In that case, we could for instance see a MMO set in the StarCraft universe, but way earlier in time, when humans had just begun colonizing.
