    Titan project "reset", delayed until 2016

    Titan project "reset", delayed until 2016
    Venturebeat broke the news earlier today that Titan has been "reset" and will be delayed until at least 2016. The decision was announced to employees a couple of days ago and sources close to the project gave us more details on the subject:

    • Blizzard felt that Titan wasn't going in the right direction and decided to make significant technological and design changes to the game. This happened in the past with Starcraft and Warcraft 3.
    • A smaller dev team will be in charge of redesigning the project and about 60 or 70 developers are being moved to other teams (WoW, Blizzard All-Stars, Diablo 3 expansion, Battle.net)

    Blizzard didn't officially comment on the subject yet, hopefully this is a step in the right direction and Titan won't have the same fate as Starcraft: Ghost.

    Oh Wow, that's nuts. Well I'm glad they're trying to make it the best and Yay more devs for WoW, Allstars and D3 III
    Blizzard do not destroy Jaina Proudmoore's character. Make her who she once was, not full of rage and vengeance.,If you are curious about me or about my writing aspirations, feel free to pst me. Paladin-Sorcerer at your service! My Youtube Channel https://www.youtube.com/user/Aeluron

    Nobody wants this.

    I can very easily wait for something when I don't know what it is.

    Don't mind the delay. As they say, they're not making pizzas.

    Saw it coming. Still it's a bit sad that we didn't even get to see a glimpse of what it was before, perhaps they might share some of the work they had done?

    So I guess "Titan" is the next WarCraft movie ... I'm disappointed.

    Here is to hoping that Blizzard releases work that will never go public when the game actually releases in some fashion. Always interested to see the inner-working of never-to-be-released games.
    Hearts are man kinds lock. If only everyone's emotions were a skeleton key, this world would be a happier place.

    Bye bye Titan. Guess it's time for Blizz to take a long hard look at WoW because the cow certainly doesn't seem like it's going to make it that far (to 2016) or that much further in general actually. Can't imagine them squeezing much more than two more (serious) expansions out of WoW, not at the rate they're going anyways.

    ^This guy. I like him.
    Blindingly defending Blizzard; ignorantly trashing Blizzard. Both require an emotional investment that I'm unwilling to give. I'll take reason, logic, facts, and the willingness to accept that I may be wrong. At the end of the day I'll have nothing to account for and I may even have learned something.

    Bwahaha. It always baffled me how people would put so many thoughts and desires into thing that they know literally nothing about, except name. Hello! "Titan" is not some holy grail to replace and conquer everything else, it is just another project from Blizzard.

    They have those guys that made decisions during diablo 3 development voicing their opinions..

    The last game that had similar restructuring was Diablo 3.

    It's not good either way IMO.

    LOL! You have no idea what it even is yet.

    Indeed, can't wait either!

    Good to know still that Blizz will do what is necessary if things are not living up to their expectations.

    Also good news for the products that will receive the additional developers.
