    Leaving behind the cynic in me that just wants to echo the people saying "They tried and it was a...titan of a failure", I don't see why would anyone want that. I mean, one of the greatest aspects of Overwatch, one that gave it momentum even before it was possible to play it, is the world and its characters. Would there be a lot of point in being rando number 153825 as you watch Tracer, Reaper or Mercy doing whatever?

    An MMO is better in a world where you can build your own story as you adventure and explore. Overwatch's world is a bit too tight, too character-centric for that.

    Now, a single player Overwatch game wouldn't be a bad idea, and Jeff did mention that they have it in their mind to eventually expand the Overwatch franchise. But an MMO? It would be possible, but pointless.

    I hope not, the game is cringy as fuck with all these politically correct and sjw characters.

    They had a good idea to turn it into an "fps" in the end cause as a mmo this game would have been terrible. Instead it's just a really boring and low skill game, something that apparently blizzard users like (see wow, hots, diablo).

    You could make a pretty good argument against Warcraft becoming an MMO.

    Don't get me wrong, I am against the MMO Overwatch, but that's not a good argument against it.

    It could be two factions fighting each other for dominion but at a larger scale than what's currently in Overwatch and of course there would be a large world to explore.
    That would be Titan. And Titan would have been magnificent. Unfortunately Blizzard played it safe and made a lazy multiplayer only game for kids, so they have to put in less work and take less risk.

    I have had some interest in Overwatch but it seems a bit repetitive and I would only play as Tracer.

    ...they worked on it for seven years before deciding it wasn't fun. That sounds like a damn lot of work and risk to me. Can you at least ground your Blizzard hate nonsense in some facts?

    They worked on it for seven years and then scrapped it, cannibalized it and turned it into something that needed less work to be put in to be finished and would probably make them more money.

    Yup... And probably lose them less money. From what I've heard, the fact that the main playerbase would be WoW players was a big factor in canning this. Hard to make the numbers work when you're just moving a monthly sub from one of your properties to another.

    yes it could be. Actually it is called Destiny.

    There is no real reason why Blizz should release another MMO, they are still pretty much on the top with World of Warcraft, why wasting resources to compete with themselves?

    It's significantly different from Titan though.

    Titan was going to be something like The Secret World.

    Titan was going to be Second Life just with PvE and PvP stuff, without the porn.

    Like do you wanna trade and stuff? Open up a shop.

    Do you wanna pew pew (literally since it was gonna be futuristic) bosses? Here, PvE.

    Do you wanna PvP? Here, PvP maps.

    It was literally bit of everything mashed together.

    I think if they were planning on an Overwatch MMO they would not have allowed Destiny 2 to be on the Blizzard app because it's too similar a concept. (shooter mmo)

    I think the fact they have, says they have no immediate plans for a similar game.

    Considering Blizzard has been nearly spot on when judging what would be fun in a game I'll take them at their word when they said Titan just wasn't fun. But of course you know better right? Overwatch on the other hand is a lot of fun.

    Closer to Destiny, Defiance or Wildstar which weren't doing too hot in the MMO FPS type market. Even the mega shooter Planetside 2 was bombing.

    I'd rather see them add a single player (or maybe even multiplayer co-op) Story campaign than I would an Overwatch MMO.

    If we quote it enough more people will see it. I think after seeing the success of Destiny and with the feedback of the PVE events in Overwatch they will transform the game into a FPSMMORPG.

    titan was going to be a class based shooter mmo, but i personally believe it was going to be 3rd person, like almost all mmos? except destiny. regardless, i truly believe that an overwatch mmo is inevitable 10 years down the line. Jeff kaplan had suggested that if overwatch became really popular (this was before fking 30 mill players lol) that they would want to expand overwatch into other forms, what could he possibly mean by that. Its either an expansion thats fully story driven or an mmo. It doesnt matter if they tried titan and it didnt work out, doesnt mean they wont do it again, and this time itll be a little different with overwatch being fleshed out as a base start (much like how warcraft 3 was to WoW). I wouldnt even compare destiny to an overwatch mmo.

    The next big MMORPG is going to be in Virtual Reality, and we don't know how many years away that is sadly.

    It honestly sounded very different to Blizzard's other work and kind of interesting. But a big risk.

    Apparently the team was never really behind it, and/or they all had conflicting ideas of what it should be and never agreed. Which is probably why it sounds like such a mishmash. Oh well.

    We got the porn after all. Kekekeke...
