Kotick finally scores his facebook dream. Certainly a title for surly old curmudgeons to avoid.

Originally posted by Thebigthrill What doese everyone think Titan will be? Is it vapor ware? World of Warcraft 2? I believe it could be World of Warcraft 2. I dont see a reason for them to drift from their cash cow. Wow with new graphics would be epic. Ideas below. * Add a web cam function to add or faces to our toons. Meh... I wouldn't use it , but others will. * Add a microphone voice communication. See a person in a city just click on them press v and you can real voice chat. Will require some great coders to build it and will raise the costs for the gaming development. * Ability to dye armor. old news games have been doing this for awhile, btu still will be welcomed. * New playable races like Minotaurs and Zombies. Er maybe you're heard of the races called "Tauren and Undead". * Player housing and ship building. Old again as this has bee going on for a long time even in older mmos 10 years old. See FFXI, EQ, and Vanguard. still nice to see it.
In all wow2 needs more features than that to attract players from WoW1. If its going to be WoW2 make it a prequal thousands of years in the past or future not the same present timeline everyone is dead!
Me personally i wouldn't play WoW2 unless there are some Large significant changes to MMO's. I loved WoW before but the fun isn't there for me anymore. It treated me good up till 2-3 years ago.
Below is where we can disscuss and come up with new ideas for Sandparks!
I'm not sure which setting, though I would agree with Sci-fi, but I'm pretty sure I know why they haven't said anything.
One, they don't have to push it with 10M subs for "that other game".
Two, they are known to take forever to release anything.
Three, they probably did an "oh, ^%@$!" at the market and it was most likely a themepark game like WoW so they are "reimagining" the game with this in mind.
I'll take a shot in the dark and say it's a Sci-fi game that has procedurally generated worlds. You can visit and be a part of these planets from space where you land on the ground like other world-based MMOs. Housing? HA! I have my own planet with generated cities, outposts and NPCs! Maybe it's just a marsh planet and I move on. Spaceships, expanding universe, maybe some high tech steampunk type tie in to magic and fantasy weapons. Player made content would be fantastic.
I've only heard rumors and most from way back. Word was it was more along the lines of sci-fi (no way confirmed) with more fps style play or so called "modern-mmo controls" what ever the f#ck that means. It's stressed to be a totally original IP by Bioware. Supposed leaks came out of contractors in Korea with animation stills but frankly could be for any of their games. Some though original sci-fi'ish art while others attached it to perhaps Star Craft series or something.
Basically hell if I know
You stay sassy!

Bioware = EA, Blizzard = Activision. So safe to say that your comment on IP ain't happening!
Originally posted by SlothnChunk Originally posted by birdycephon Actually, I heard rumor it's going to be steampunk-based. Enjoy.
Yea Darkwatch...which mixes steampunk, western and horror.
Oh man.... *anything* but steampunk!! I hate that stuff.
A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

So basically Tauren and Undead? lol
LOLZ, so true hehe
It's a new IP - we know that for a fact as Blizzard have confirmed that several times, everything else is just piss in the wind.
My hope is for an MMORTS, we've yet to have a real MMORTS with any real sense of persistance, as with WoW I think Blizzard is shape the future of the MMORTS if they do it.
Pessimistic: A on-rails game that's simple to learn and simple to master with little complexity and barely any thought required. If they go this route then they'll probably make it multi-platform, maybe for the next generation of consoles. Free to play with RMAH and cash shop.
Optimistic: I hope they've decided to make a sandboxy space MMO with exploration and opportunity for players to be creative on planets and other objects in space they discover. Minecraft has shown that many people love building things, I see alot of potential for more of that aspect to be added in an MMO. The game would ideally have a deep crafting system and PvP with focus on fighting over valuable resources, control over areas in space aswell as on planets. Subscription without RMAH/cash shop ideally, or buy to play with fluffy item cash shop.

Originally posted by asmkm22 Stuff that I can't find documented anymore, due to being on the original WoW forums, that might or might not still be true: 1. They said it was aimed at the casual market rather than the hardcore MMO market. This was back before WoW itself was converted to a very casual game, so I don't know how relevant that comment is anymore. The way it was mentioned was like it was meant to be a social MMO rather than a raid or dungeon MMO.
analyst claimed Titan was a "casual mmo" last year - 2011 (well after WOW had gone casual)
things change all the time
until Blizzard makes a formal announcement, nothing is set in stone

I am huge fan of many of their games (D2, SC 2, WoW) and I am convinced their top developers are capable of delivering something truly amazing (capable of does not mean they necessarily will).
They said their MMO has expected life cycle of 20 years (correct me if I am wrong), so that it probably is not like anything we have seen so far since life cycle of recent games is 3 months with subs, prolonged to 1-2 years after switching to F2P (proly inaccurate, just using these numbers to make a point).
What makes me concerned is that the game has been in development for how long already...4...5 years? I think that there was a shift of MMO community's preferences which was reflected by fail of most of recent themepark MMOs. Maybe I am wrong, but to me it seems that people start asking for more depth and rather sandboxy features. If Titan has been in development for so many years already, it is possible / probable (not sure what the % probability is) that Titan may not respond to that shift and be obsolete in design. Look at TESO, they probably started its development when themeparks were at their peak and look how it was received by the community...
Just my thoughts. I truly hope that it will be amazing game which will finally make me leave WoW for good. I put a lot of my hopes into this game without actually seeing it only because of the names working on it and the products they already created in the past.
Considering that Mr. Kotick the CEO of Activision stated that in his opinion the future of gaming is in apps and that Blizzard hired an advertising executive to the developement team im thinking itll be more in line with a modern day to Futuristic MMO. Think maybe blade runner or cyberpunk style possibly? itll be playable from your mobile device through apps and have advertisements in it.
This is of course all hypothetical considering that Blizzard has always been tight lipped about its projects after giving them code names. However I do agree with manyhere that it will probably not be a fantasy based game since they would be competing directly with games like Citadel of Sorcery and Star Citizen if they keep to tradition and miss thier estimated release date my months.
Then again I would love to see a Star Craft MMO style game. We dont have many space MMO's that fully intergrate MMO and RPG functions. Even Chris Roberts states that Star Citizen wont be an MMO even though players can play together online in a massive universe and even impact said universe throught thier actions. i would love to play a brood and be part of a massive zerg with hundreds of other players as we compete for control of the galaxy. but alas, this is all a dream. Blizzard stopped listening to players several years ago, what better evidence could there to this than that annoyingly disappointing Diablo 3?
Played: UO, LotR, WoW, SWG, DDO, AoC, EVE, Warhammer, TF2, EQ2, SWTOR, TSW, CSS, KF, L4D, AoW, WoT
Playing: The Secret World until Citadel of Sorcery goes into Alpha testing.
Tired of: Linear quest games, dailies, and dumbed down games
Anticipating:Citadel of Sorcery
All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.
I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.
I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

its been 5 years since the new mmo was confirmed
Originally posted by eyelolled I think it will be the most luxurious and magnificent game to ever venture out. I think that there will be a crucial design flaw that will cause the entire project to sink after hitting an "iceberg" that exposes the critical flaw during it's "maiden voyage". People will make a sappy love story about it 90 years later.
