Blizzard co-founder and CEO Mike Morhaime has confirmed that Titan, the companies next-gen MMO, has been cancelled. Blizzard had spent seven years developing the successor to their highly popular MMO World of Warcraft, and now it seems unlikely we’ll be getting a new MMO from the company anytime soon.
Speaking with Polygon, Morhaime lamented the decision, along with all the hard work gone down the drain. However, it had to be done. Apparently, the company was unable to make the game fun, and creating a game with no fun just wasn’t worth further development time.
“We didn’t find the fun,” Morhaime explained. “We didn’t find the passion. We talked about how we put it through a reevaluation period, and actually, what we reevaluated is whether that’s the game we really wanted to be making. The answer is no.”
Though never officially announced, Blizzard spoke openly about the MMO. And last year, they confirmed the need to reevaluate the project after six years in development. Sadly, that reevaluation wasn’t enough to keep the game alive. At least we still have World of Warcraft expansions to look forward to.
