I pray for steampunk. Fantasy and sci-fi have already been done.
Perhaps it's too soon to start the hype machine, but I'm definitely curious.
Also, I do expect at least a preview during BlizzCon, though it will likely not be the main feature. I think that the focus will be on the "TBC 2.0" expansion, sort of a grand finale for the last throes of WoW's prime, before the playerbase is eased over to Titan two years from now.
Announced? They've already discussed the project. You mean to provide merely more info about the project? It's described as, "a casual MMORPG with FPS." Also... "We're not trying to make a WoW sequel." In fact, he explained that "the two titles will co-exist in the future." Blizzard will leverage the WoW film (Duncan Jones directing) for the next expansion -- great strategic move.

To be honest, I hope they do announce it and it either destroy's all previous hypothetical notions of what it could be, or completely reverses it and turns into something the majority of the Blizzard community will dread. I can just hear the umad threads now, just like when diablo 3 released..... *nostalgia*
Reduce- Iconic class abilities, complexity and meaningful rotations, usefulness of any one class in a raid group
Reuse- A continent from 3 expansions ago, a story arch from 3 games ago, characters that would otherwise be dead
Recycle- A beaten to death plot-line, the nostalgia goggles for TBC, bossfight mechanics that make patchwerk seem complex
The three R's of Warlords of Draenor and that doesn't even mention flying, #savekarabor, blizzard store, tier to tier ilvl skips.
yes. I mean .. atleast they should let us know what it is ... I dont want to be like TITAN TITAN TITAN ... ooow shoot its space pirates yarrrrr
Should? Only Blizzard knows the answer to that one.
WoW=/Titan, so why shouldn't they announce a new and fresh IP at Blizzcon? Titan's release doesn't necessarily mean WoW's demise and I am pretty sure Blizzard doesn't intend to replace WoW with Titan either.
Something, Something, Something, Dark Side.
Blizzard needs to being back gamers faith in them. I think they need to show what they have. WoW is on a downward spiral and D3 was sketchy at best, they need to show something for us to be happy in.

If we get anything, I believe it would be a teaser trailer but they don't really need to this year. I believe they'll have a big reveal for the rest of their games so keep Titan in their back pocket for a bit. We have WoW expac, Diablo 3 xpac, SC2 xpac and probably a release date for Blizzard All Stars and Hearthstone.
Its about time the confirm the leaks.. they have been WAY too tight lipped about Titan IMO
Not to give a cop-out answer, but it should if it's ready, they have game design framework and goals laid out and some concept art or gameplay demos.
If they don't have at least that (although I'm pretty sure they would at this point), then they shouldn't bother.
Blizzard is there own worst enemy at this point. The original developers of vanilla (as pointed out by GC having left the team in today's blue tweet posts, might be reading into that one) sort of hit the sweet spot of MMORPG players at the time. Question is, will Titan be able to hit today's vastly different (mostly in terms of convenience) playerbase AND the previous generation of MMORPG players? I don't think it is possible frankly.
Edit: There is the possibility that they may merge the generations of playerbases into committing more time & effort a little like Vanilla/BC in terms of adventure and sheer leveling through a new world perhaps through hype and expectations alone, but that will be a massive undertaking.

If the game is still something like 2 years off, I'd be quite surprised to see anything this year about it, unless it's the vaguest sort of trailer.
Benevolence is a luxury for the strong - Wrathion
It will be a new expansion, with even more heirlooms and lvl cap to 100 (omfg when will it end?!)
