    WoW: longest living Blizzard game without a sequel, or is one in the works?

    It took 12 years for Starcraft 2 to get a sequel (Brood Wars excluded, it was just an expansion).

    World of Warcraft is still one of Blizzard's most profitable games, generating more cash/year than all of Diablo 3's sales and probably more than any gaming company makes in a year, maybe EA excluded.

    Think Blizzard would be considering recreating in in a new engine with new graphics and everything, or are they laying all their future MMO creative effort into Titan?

    WoW is 10 years old now, in 2 years it will be the longest living Blizzard game without a sequel (no, it won't be dead in 2 years).

    In terms of game engine, in which case it would be 13 years old since it was based off the Warcraft 3 engine.

    Technically, no. WoW is very much not a sequel, in the same way that Civilization V is a sequel to Civilization IV, but Civilization V: Brave New World is not a sequel to Civilization V but an expansion pack.
    Belief can become reality!

    titan is going to be free to play and is in development hell.

    also mmo sequels always turn out badly. they divide the original playerbase between two different games and rarely end up with much growth, essentially doubling your costs

    guild wars 2 is the only mmo sequel that really turned out somewhat well and from what i heard most guild wars 1 players disliked it.

    You make good points.

    I don't want to leave azeroth to go to another world.... I like to think "Titan" is a codename for World of Warcraft 2

    Why give something a sequel when it doesn't need one? I'm not big on lore, but I understand there is still a ton of storyline left to include in the game, along with some stuff that is improvised along the way. These expansions are just continuing the story.

    pretty sure blizzard said cataclysm was basically wow 2 as the remade the whole lvling experience except for tbc and wrath parts which are short, also blizzard has improved wow's engine a lot since 04 and wc3 *it's base engine*

    new models coming soon prove this even further, as they are highly detailed and up to date imo with current standards *for the cartoony look* *look at wild star* and swtor is kinda similar as a mixed stylized/realism

    although i would not mind have sliders if possible(boob slider nuff said every game with sliders has one), and more 3d armor and not skin armor

    An expansion is not a sequel, it's an expansion upon the game.

    A sequel (also known as follow-up) is a narrative, documental, or other work of literature, film, theatre, television, music, or game that continues the story of, or expands upon, some earlier work.

    Every WoW expansion so far have expanded both the digital world where we can play, but also the story and narrative, or lore, of WoW.
    That's why we have different time periods for Outlands, Northrend, Post-Cataclysm Azeroth, and finally Pandaria, the most recent continent added.
    It's a sequel.
