Blizzard cancels Titan

Well, it’s official – Blizzard has stopped all work on their mystery next-gen MMO Titan. The never announced project is as dead as Starcraft Ghost. In the interview with Polygon Mike Morhaime says that Blizzard ‘didn’t find the fun’ and that they attempted something very ambitious only for it to never really come together. Chris Metzen states that the decision to pull back was ‘excruciating’ -

“We were trying to do the right thing and build the right, smart product, and keep it all moving,” Metzen said. “The opportunity to get that perspective and dust off a little bit, scraped knees and all, stand back up and reevaluate as a team, as leaders, as a culture – it was a big blessing.”

We reported last year when Titan went back to the drawing board – seems like it may have been a victim of Blizzard’s desire to really only focus on the one MMO. When asked about supporting World of Warcraft, Metzen said “My hope personally is that we’ll support it forever.” Alas, Titan, we never knew ye.
