Blizzard Playing Titan Already

Gamasutra talks with Blizzard COO Paul Sams about MMOGs in a conversation centered on Blizzard's plans to continue to support World of Warcraft for many years to come. He does also say that their still-unannounced next MMORPG, codenamed Titan, is already in a playable state: "We're very confident in that product. It's an awesome one," he tells them. "We're playing it already. It is a total ball to play. We think that the reach of that product is greater than anything that we've done before. We're very excited about that. I believe that it's the type of game that will have a very long life, much like World of Warcraft has." Thanks GameSpot.

As long as Titan is the code-name for the oft-denied World of Starcraft then I'd be interested. If it's not then it'll have to be something special and not fantasy based to catch my interest. Far, far too many fantasy based games on the market over the last ten years, think I'm burned out on elves.

I dunno, there have been a few attempts but none of them really did a huge amount of business. Fallen Earth, Champs/Star Trek Online (lol), Global Agenda (which barely qualifies as an MMO), the cop one etc.

Anarchy Online did well in its time and EVE is going on 8 years strong and still growing. They aren't WoW level, but EVE has more subscribers 8 years in than DAoC had at peak, and DAoC was king of the hill popularity wise until WoW hit(though EQ had more subscribers at the time, and EVE is around those numbers).

Planetside also did pretty well
