World of Warcraft has been around since 2004 – and it’ll be a few more months until it celebrates its 7th birthday. That’s a pretty long time for a game, and with the most active subscribers in the world, it’s also one of the most lucrative games for Blizzard to keep going. However, it looks like Blizzard has plans to replace the MMORPG, at least according to speculation.
Codenamed “Titan”, this new intellectual property from Blizzard is the company’s next-gen MMO project, and is supposedly the most ambitions thing it has ever attempted, and has the potential to “eclipse” World of Warcraft. And according to analysts, Blizzard might just be announcing Titan next month at its annual BlizzCon event.
It’s been awhile since the company has released something completely new, and with Diablo 3 postponed until next year, Blizzard is expected to announce something interesting at this year’s BlizzCon in addition to the release dates for the next chapter in the StarCraft 2 trilogy, as well as the new World of Warcraft expansion. BlizzCon will be taking place October 21-22, which is just a few weeks away. I guess we won’t have to wait too long to find out.
Update 9/29: Blizzard Community Manager, Bashiok, has confirmed that it won’t be announcing any unnamed MMOs at BlizzCon.
