We’ve talked about it for years, but Project Titan has been canned according to Blizzard’s CEO Mike Morhaime.
Though never officially announced, Project Titan was supposed to be Blizzard’s next big MMO, rumoured (most recently, at least) to be released in 2016. That, obviously, is no longer the case. Blizzard has been keeping very quiet about the new game following a reduction in development team size back in May 2013, until now.
Speaking to Polygon about to the Project Titan, Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime has confirmed that the game has been cancelled.
“We had created World of Warcraft, and we felt really confident that we knew how to make MMOs. So we set out to make the most ambitious thing that you could possibly imagine. And it didn’t come together.”
“It’s always really, really hard to make those kind of decisions. It was hard when we canceled Warcraft Adventures. It was hard when we canceled StarCraft Ghost. But it has always resulted in better-quality work.”
“The discipline of knowing when to quit is important. We were losing perspective and getting lost in the weeds a little. We had to allow ourselves to take that step back and reassess why the hell we were doing that thing in the first place.”
