Blizzard's Free-to-Play Plans?

Develop has a report saying it "understands" that one of Blizzard's upcoming projects is a free-to-play game. There are no further details in the report, which they attribute to a "source connected to the matter."

I doubt it, they need a replacement for WoW since its started losing subscribers.

Wrong way to look at it. They don't want to cannibalize WoW, even if it's losing subscribers (that rate of attrition, btw, has slowed considerably in the last quarter). They'll want to offer one subscription service (WoW) and alternative games, a free-to-play Titan almost certainly one of them.
I agree, but by the time titan is done (remember this is blizzard, it will take years to finish AFTER they start releasing details, and they haven't even done that yet) they will need a replacement subscriber model game. I agree they should get into F2P also, but I doubt titan is that thing.
