Blizzard Cancels Project Titan


Blizzard’s Project Titan, which we never really knew a whole lot about except that it was supposed to be the developer’s next big MMO after the ground-breaking World of Warcraft and had been in development for seven years, has been canceled.

Blizzard co-founder and CEO Mike Morhaime said that they wanted Project Titan to be “the most ambitious thing that you could possibly imagine,”, but at the end of the day, it “didn’t come together.”

"We didn’t find the fun,” Morhaime told the site. “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."

Blizzard’s SVP of franchise and story development, Chris Metzen called the decision to cancel Project Titan “excruciating”.

"The discipline of knowing when to quit is important,” said Metzen. “We were losing perspective and getting lost in the weeds a little. We had to allow ourselves to take that step back and reassess why the hell we were doing that thing in the first place."

Well it’s certainly a shame such an ambitious and highly anticipated product had to ultimately be canned, but better than released some bloated mess that’s one giant disappointment. Seen that happen far too often.
