Polygon has reported that Blizzard has canceled its upcoming – and basically unannounced – MMO, Titan. This comes directly from Blizzard’s co-founder and CEO Mike Morhaime, so yes; this is as legit as it can get. Titan has been cancelled.
As Morhaime told Polygon:
“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.”
Chris Metzen, Blizzard’s senior vice president of story and franchise development, added:
“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.”
And there you have it. Titan is history and we will never find out what this MMO looked like, even in its early stages. Unless of course someone leaks images and concept arts from it.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
