Blizzard's Unannounced MMOG Reset and Delayed?

Blizzard has hit the reset button on their unannounced upcoming MMORPG project, reports GamesBeat, citing "a source familiar with the matter," who tells them the game codenamed "Titan" should not be expected before 2016. They say the team developing the game has been reduced from 100 to 30, with 70 developers assigned to other projects while the core team starts over on the game. This is unconfirmed at this point, as Blizzard has not yet responded to their request for a comment.

I see it differently. Aside from gamer's wanting the next Blizzard MMO to come out, why would Blizzard release it now? WoW still has ~ 9 million subscriptions world wide. It's one of the few MMOs that is still profitable as a subscription model. Everyone else is doing microtransactions.

It was said when EQ2 came out - one of the biggest deterrents for EQ2 was EQ1 was still wildly popular and was still releasing content updates. So, EQ2 suffered. Ok, so EQ2 had some launch issues, but dig back through some old reviews for it and this comes up quite a few times. It was also said when D&D Online released that it came out a few years prior ala EQ, which at the time was a much better game.

Another example? UO2 - why this was never released amazes me. Even more so considering UO is still around. But, at the time UO2 was shelved partially because UO was still popular. I'm not sure the concept for UO2 fit the UO world, but there was helluva good marketing in the concept pitch. Still gets me stoked seeing it:

It will never happen, but if we want to help Blizzard put more emphasis on Titan - stop playing WoW and I'll bet Titan fires fast.
