"Titan" code name for the project, will be a shooter. I have friends working on it. Just so you know.
I do not recall them ever mentioning or hinting at it being an FPS, feel free to provide a link if I am wrong.
The FPS part is only rumour, and given the state of many so-called major leaks can you really place faith in those which repeatedly refuse to give their sources.

If it significantly differs from WoW, it's better to name it something else and make it an independent product.

Blizzard trademarjed all of the starcraft 2 expansions while it was in beta did they not?
Would it be funny if Blizzard said
"There is no titan, it's just what we've been naming our 6.0 project, so.. lol"?
No, it wouldn't be funny. I don't know if I'd care, it sounds like a joke a 6 year old would do. Not that it's immature, but that it lacks so much intelligence. Fart jokes are a million times more intellectual.
Or did you in fact mean:
"There is no 6.0. We're actually giving you the game Titan instead!"?
Still don't think it would be funny in any way. They would bleed subs by the millisecond and they'd have to lay off people = less content for me.
How old are you, rogas? I'm genuinely interested, I'm not asking as an insult.
EU first PG wave 30, come at me bros.
i'm not even sure the part about a new franchise was an official comment, i just think it was - if i remember correctly.
Edit for link to Titan scrap: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news...ase-Until-2016
but anything's possible, i suppose.
And telling the whole wow community the long expected titan has been delayed for several years hasn't been a total shock ofc... And yes i get what ya mean, blizz should continue making the same rehashed expac's like they did the last 4 years. It sure has worked out fine for them. Why not shock the entire wow community with a whole new warcraft project (titan) ? I can only imagine that would excite a lot of wow players. But just not you...
WoW 2 would be where they could make large changes like an all new engine with physics, complete redo of the system requirements, and other giant changes like that.
also, they said they were back to the drawing board (aka theoretical stuff like general design ideas) and scrapped everything they had already developed. which means that anything they already had in terms of working game engine was thrown away with it.
it just makes no sense for them to say "welp, that didn't work out, let's start the whole thing again from scratch!" but then keep an experimental game engine that wasn't even supposed to support the type of game they are now going to make.
and again, they didn't say "Titan didn't work out, we are going to use some of it's assets for something else now" but "Titan didn't work out the way we thought it would, so we are redesigning it to try another approach that will hopefully live up to what we imagined it to be".
TT will be a game, set in its own universe/IP if Blizz - Mostly Metzen & Co (creative) as well the chief exec's/investors - can -ever- find the stomach that they've always lacked historically, in carrying out things to the end when trying to release a brand new IP, and WoW2, if made, no earlier than the next decade obviously, would be a seperate game from Titan, and from WoW1/WC3/WC4 etc.
See, EA scrapped their new age Ultima game and brought the devs back to UO. They made the ninja/samurai expansion shortly after, scrapping the original game they were making. This game looked about as good as TBC era WoW and was to be released around the time when World of Warcraft and EQ2 hit shelves. Regardless of speculation, the competition factored into that decision.
I see Blizz doing this now; and I'm a bit worried.
Perhaps Blizzard thinks it's safer to try to improve WoW and keep these subscriptions than to risk a big investment into Titan that nets them a Free To Play slot after a year?
Titan is wow and starcraft merging together in one universe.
