    The only thing I can say for certain is that the next WoW expansion will be announced. I'm still not sure if they will have anything for us on titan yet. They could possibly talk about a Diablo expansion as well. As for the Protoss SC2 expansion, I'd say definitely too early to say anything about that yet.

    it will be after. at start of legendary questchain Wrathion speaks about incoming major threat to Azeroth, but first we need to deal with some minor problems, and with his great interest in Horde/Alliance I strongly believe he means Garrosh and war.

    Titan has been rumored to be FPS MMO as well. I doubt Activision/Blizzard would have two competing FPS MMOs.
    Pretty sure there is plenty of room in the market for multiple games of this type.

    So we get the legendary in T16 as preperation for stopping Garrosh in T17.

    Why the hell do you think a game made by Bungie is Titan, a game being made by Blizzard?
    Unsubscribed as of 03/10/2014.

    If you dislike where WoW is headed in your mind, quit. Really. Sitting around complaining about "promises" that may or may not have been made isn't doing anything to help your cause. It's just making you look more and more like the constantly complaining and perpetually offended.

    What do you care? Please lets not start with the Blizzard bashing. If you are unhappy with any of their games just keep it to yourself as this thread should have no interest to you at all whatsoever.

    Titan would overshadow the other two titles.

    Save it for next year when all there'll be is more unit balances in the next SC2 expansion.

    Says who? It may not be something you like and want in a game but there is no hard and fast rule stating you can only have a cash shop in a game if there is no subscription.

    Although the amount of titan story line in wow makes me think its xpack at this point.
    And what makes you think the silence on Titan isn't a part of a communication strategy? Keep in mind the game is at least 1-2 years from being released so there is nothing to gain for Blizzard to say anything about it yet.

    I have heard there are some amazing after parties though that are nearly worth the trip itself even if you can't get into Blizzcon.

    I was talking about games in general not just Wow. Or do you not realize there are other games other than Wow?

    Truestory: I've never gone to any of them. I'm a boring ol' square and am always anxious to get home to bed. I did stop by the WoW Insider party once because a friend was going, but that was on the Thursday night after we picked up tickets, so it was early.

    I guess this year I should probably go to the Curse party though

    It will be in a few months, probably June. Tickets for the last Blizzcon went on sale the last week of May, and that year Blizzcon was in October. So somewhere between five and six months before the event is when to expect ticket sales.
    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.

    I'd love to go to a Blizzcon sometime, but I may do the Live-Stream this year. Big conference events are always fun though, even if you aren't there. E3 is my favorite week every year, just to see all of the new stuff and all of the announcements.

    SC2 will not be there (Other than progamers. HotS will be only have been released for half year).

    It would announce new WoW xpac(timing is just right), plus either Titan or Allstars(could be both), and possibly D3 xpac as well.

  18. #158
    Oh boy oh boy! Let the countdown begin! I may actually fly down there this year for it xD

    The game has been in development for a long time and has had a dedicated team for at least a few years. That's certainly not enough to estimate release anytime soon, especially with Blizzard's infamously slow pace but it's absolutely enough time for them to do a reveal. They might not have any gameplay trailers since it likely is too early in development for that, but certainly they could have a cinematic trailer and some general information about the game, their design theme, goals for the game, etc.

    How long before WoW's release was the game announced? Quite some time. Although I didn't follow WoW from the start -- I only joined a few months after release -- I seem to recall the original release trailer was all cinematic work.

    I'm not saying they will announce titan this year (I think next year is a bit more likely), but I think this year is completely possible.
    It is rather unlikely Titan will be revealed.

    Here are some reasons:

    1. Morhaime said that after the SC2 expansion (launched early March), they'll concentrate to get BaS out. Blizzard is in DIRE need for a free to play DOTA kind of game with all the heroes of the Blizzard universe.

    2. Diablo 3 needs a new expansion announced (and Morhaime confirmed the expansion already in Nov). Not only because D3 after its initial flak is rather going in the right direction and so needs an expansion, but also because Blizzard will launch it on consoles before Christmas. D3 on consoles with patches 1.03 to 1.07 included is dynamite in a world of consoles which simply lack a decent H&S.

    3. WOW needs a new expansion announcement, since MoP will be 14-15 months old by then already. They clearly stated they will launch new WOW expansions shorter to each other, so that's a certainty already.

    With ALL the 3 moves/announcements above, it is EXCLUDED that they will talk much about Titan, because the mere mentioning of its subject would put the other 3 projects right into oblivion in the NEWS media.

    4. Rob Pardo declared multiple times that they want to get rid of the old habit of announcing games TOO SOON. SC2 was postponed more than 6 months and Diablo 3 was postponed several times which clearly was not desirable.

    So the earliest Blizzard will talk about Titan is when it will be playable in extensive Alfa/closed Beta form.

    Titan will only be announced the moment the 3 above projects will be as good as launched. That's late 2014 at the earliest, with Titan probably launching 2015 or even 2016.

    It will depend of how much power WOW still has left in its 10 year old legs AND how the crowd will react to the Warcraft movie (it could have a huge impact or not). Depending on these factors, it is clear that getting into Titan BETA will require a new Annual Subscription for WOW to make the transition, after which a multiple sub based system could be announced to have free access over ALL Blizzard games.

    So Titan will not be much talked about in the upcoming Blizzcon. It is not in the priority list for Blizzard in 2014
