    Yes, based on this I voted other IP.

     

    I have read/heard on various internet sites (google yourself, not hard to find -- however credible it may or may not be) that Blizzard was hiring someone for this project who would deal with product placement in the game, so it would be set from the present into the near future. Since Bobby Kotick has been elected a director of the Coca Cola Company, you can guess it will be a world with at least that type of product in it.

    Blizzard can't fix the fact that MMORPGs are tired and old.  Slap whatever coat of paint you want on it, but players are yearning for something new

    Except for the millions that play and enjoy them apparently.

    TV used to have tons of westerns back in the day... did them to death, now you don't ever see any westerns on TV any more.  MMORPGS are like westerns... they've been done to death.  In the end, any new product is still going to be a western... been there, done that.  It's only fresh and new to someone who has been living under a rock for the past 20 years or born yesterday.

    Deadwood wasn't fresh? I disagree. I loved that show, thought it was amongst the best things I have ever watched on TV in fact, despite having watched 100s of Westerns before it.

    There are has been a few Westerns made recently really in fact... Hell on Wheels? Seems to me that the genre is doing just fine in terms of lasting appeal.

    You don't want a new MMORPG, you want something entirely new.  

    No, YOU want something new... stop speaking for others and projecting your wants onto them. Everything you say is a personal perception of a burned out player. A lot of others do not feel the same.

    Titan is probably that new MMOFPS for the next gen Sony/MS consoles that is being made by Bungie and Activision Blizzard. Forgot the name of it...

    This sight seems to indicate TItan *could* also be for xbox as well.  Which is why I suspect Ghost.

    <blockquote> Titan is not a brand new IP, but a spin off based on one of the existing franchises (not Warcraft though).

    </blockquote>

     

    I keep tell you all to keep a look out.

    Here I will try to fill you all in on some of my speculations.

    a few years ago BUNGIE( the makers of HALO FPS)/MS wanted to make a HALO MMO. Code name for this was TITAN.

    Soon later talk came out that this project was scrapped.  But Blizzard, BUNGIE, and MS all soon after started working on a secret project together as news revealed.

     

    I speculate that the current TITAN is some kind of spin off of the original HALO MMOFPS concept also known as TITAN.

    But going in a somewhat new dirrection with new IP and such(Think of original Blizzard Warhammer RTS which converted to a new IP known as Warcraft for a historic understand of how this works), and going both PS4 and 720

    Its also a board game :)

    But would be cool to have a halo mmorpg, long as it wasnt a fps. And had multiple planets  you could adventure in.

    Just hope they dont make another themepark.

    Warhammer 40,000.

    Seriously, it NEEDS to be WH40K, for my sake. Please.

    Social/Casual/Mobile games have the biggest player base, with hundreds of millions of people playing them. MMO players are easy to monetize, and spend more money on gaming than any other gaming demographic. The holy grail for gaming corporations is to have a casual/social/mobile MMO that potentially appeals to tens of millions of players, with all sorts of monetization schemes plus ad revenue in place to reap as much profit as possible. Whether this will work for Blizzard or not remains to be seen. 



    This^. Although I'd guess the game will be made up of modules which can operate on all platforms.


    Want to play a simplistic space rail shooter on your iphone at work? Titan will do it. You're a fem and you want to buy the latest fashions in the item mall, then show your character off modeling them to all your Facebook friends? Titan will be there again. Teen chat and dating lobbies? Yes. Both zombies and vampires? Absolutely. Apps that will instantly email summaries of all your little adventures to everyone in your contact book? Yes again. Ways in game to buy instant Justin Bieber news alerts? Yes. Etc...

    I voted Sci-Fi. Probably the game will be a mix of Star Trek/SWTOR with steroids and lots of dumbed down gameplay. Chances are the game will feature FPS. Although I would like to see a high quality RTS.

    This is quite likely.

    Brand new IP doesn't mean as much when coming from Blizzard (who copied Warhammer).

    Could very well be a spin off of an existing IP - albeit not their own!

    Warhammer 40k "spin/rip off" would fit PERFECTLY with everything we know so far - broad, mass appeal (close enough to WoW), sci-fi, shooter, spin off, "brand new ip" ...

    But wasn't Starcraft Warhammer 40k rip off, sort of? I guess that's not it then...

    It will probably be an MMOFPS Style, but think a little out of the box.  It will be something new generation probably set up across multiple platforms and you'll be able to be in the game mobile.  The mobile part may not be 100% interaction within the game but you'll be able to perform certain functions for your character on your phone etc..

    It will be very social... something you are constantly connected too.

    World of Warcraft was not innovative, either. 

    Boy are you a downer.

    But he's spot on correct. 

    The first two themeparks released within a month of each other.  Technically EQ2 was the first themepark, but WoW went even further into the concept than EQ2 did.  A game that basically created an entire subgenre, the subgenre that dominates the landscape today for better or worse, has to be called innovative.  

    People just have trouble calling something they dont like as innovative.

    EQ 1 was the first themepark

    Also anarchy online, daoc and city of heroes predate wow and eq2.

    EQ1 was not even close to a themepark.  Themepark does not mean "not a sandbox".  Themepark is about hopping from quest hub to quest hub, getting your cheap thrills (instant gratification) before moving to the next ride.

     

    The funny thing is, the first time i even heard the term themepark was inside of a sandbox (SWG).

     

    and from what i remember AO and CoH were both mission based (as was SWG)
