    I doubt it's 40K related, as THIS website is most definitely Starcraft related. It says so in the "email" you get when using the password. That and Blizz and GW hate each other too much to ever work together again.

    EDIT: Am I the only one that actually went to the site?? Why are we arguing if it's starcraft related... It is...

    He meant why would anyone question whether this is about SC because it's in the SC section of Battlenet. Obvioused.

    Also, official statement is Titan is not a current IP, so I agree with the mod comments that say for the purposes of this thread SC != Titan.

    Those are Zerg larvae, that they apparently want to use for some manner of tests and experiments. The nature of those, is still not uncovered.

    It's weird that Blackstone would be related to Starcraft, since Blackstone was a 2D side scroller from back in the day.

    Cool PR move.

    Too bad I'm not a fan of Starcraft, I was instead hoping it would have something to do with their new MMO (which supposdely is supposed to be a new IP).
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    I've seen some blogs post this, but also that it is indeed an existing IP. Honestly, I think a Starcraft MMO would make sense, mostly since the end of this SC2 saga could open the door for it. Also, I think one of the earlier rumors on Titan was that it was going to use the first person perspective, which kinda makes sense.

    Ultimately, there are so many rumors going either way that it really is impossible to tell. At the very least, we can hope that all of this WoW learning would help them make an even better MMO when working from scratch.

    That was Blackthorne.

    Or Blackhawk for the EU release, apparently.

    Well no one really knows what "Titan" is. Though from bits and pieces put together, and I think they have unofficially confirmed it to be a Sci-Fi MMO.

    Also a reputable source who has usually been spot on for past Blizzard releases has also cleared the current confusion with the words "Brand new IP". Blizzard always have a vague way of saying things and have mislead the player base numerous times before as well. Pandas ring a bell???? They said they would never do anything panda related only a few years back.

    From my understand Blizzard's "Titan" will probably be something of a spin off on Starcraft. And the Sci Fi MMO fits the bill.

    I just don't think Blizzard have the balls to come up with something totally brand new. They know a Starcraft related game will bring in the players especially the Asian players which is what they seem to be targeting from recent decisions.

    Gotta love this crap. You say they are vague and then immediately follow up by saying they definitely declared something absolutely did not.

    Wait what? Of course I said they were vague. And where did I say they declared something? I said I "think" as in assuming. Wait..Nvm..another Blizzard fan boy?

    Well not a very good fan boy if you didn't hear about the "Panda" incident. Everyone knows about it.

    Your ''think'' was in the first paragraph and not related to what I quoted.

    First rule of reading Blizzard conspiracies: Blizzard never says never. Anyone claiming they did is wrong.

    So you are yet another parrot in the chorus that thinks a non-committal answer equates to an iron clad promise.

    Good for you. It's amazing how people so quick to twist words like to call others liars.

    Well what are you trying to say? Are you really talking out of your ass?

    That example was simply in reference to "Titan" not necessarily being a new IP. Like you said. Blizzard never says never.
