That didn’t take long. It was just a few days ago that the five-year plan for Blizzard Entertainment leaked out of China. If you’ll recall, there was the possible plan for a new MMO title, called Titan, on that sheet. And now it looks like Blizzard Entertainment wants to go ahead and confirm that that game does, indeed, exist. The company is labeling it as their “next-gen MMO,” and details about the title are pretty much non-existent at this point.
Frank Pearce is a producer for World of Warcraft, and he happened to have a recent interview with Destructoid. In that interview, he had a quick comment to make about Titan. “The media is not supposed to know anything about [Titan]. It’s our next-gen MMO, and we’ve only started talking about it in a limited fashion because we wanna leverage the fact that we’re working on something like that for the purpose of recruiting, getting some of the best talent in the industry on that project.”
Pearce wouldn’t verify the validity of that previously leaked document from China, which also outlined future titles for StarCraft 2 and Diablo 3. But, with Titan now being confirmed, it’s certainly possible that leaked sheet is an indicator for what’s to come for Blizzard Entertainment. Who’s excited?
