    The blizzcon that finally reveals Titan. Wonder if they'll launch one of those mystery websites with a slow unfolding clue like they did with D3.

    Wish they'd have it near chicago, would love to take my son to see one.

    I have a feeling this is going to be a big year at Blizzcon. They pretty much have to announce the next WoW expansion unless they plan on it not coming out until mid 2015. Thats a given, but it will be more interesting to see the other announcements. Potential canidates being Diablo 3 expansion which has been confirmed to be being worked on, the next Starcraft 2 expansion, and Titan. I seriously doubt we are going to see anything Titan related this year because I think when they show that off it is going to BE the show. Next year they could easily announce it even if they also announce a SC2 expansion. 

    I also don't think Titan will be revealed because Blizzard knows when to put games out. Anytime in the next couple of years is probably not a good move considering the shape of the industry. No one knows what payment model is going to be "the one" going into the future and a ton of developers are still testing the waters. There is also a few high profile releases coming in the next couple of years that could very well shape the industry. Blizzard is known for looking at what other people do and shape it to be their own. (not quite so much innovation, but not a bad thing) If they really want to blow everyone away they need to spend nearly as much time researching the market as they spend developing the game.

    It's ready when it's ready is not only about making people wait, but it's also about revealing when it's ready.   I doubt blizzard cares about anything except the state of the Titan project in regards to whether or not there will be a reveal.

    Year of the Titan (reveal).

    For me, Blizzcon is the most significant gaming event of the year.

    Their products are amazing and usually top in the genre (SC RTS, Diablo ARPG, WoW MMO). As far as I am concerned, they have not released a low quality game yet.

    I really hope they will announce Titan this year.

    As other's have already said, we will see the next expansion for WoW, and probably an expansion for D3...if not an expansion probably some major overhaul points. I'm still on the fence about them revealing Titan. This would seem like a good time, especially if they aren't going to announce a D3 expansion.

    In some regards, they almost have to show what Titan is. Blizzard had a fairly negative year last year, even though D3 sold really well, it was received pretty negatively among the general public in many regards. MoP had the worst showing of any WoW expansion, and Heart of the Swarm didn't release.

    Still cant beleive people are hyped about a game knowing nothing but the title "Titan" from a company that has declined in direction and quality since its announcement.

    Awesome news.  I hope all the people attending have a blast! 

    To anybody wanting to go: I wish you good luck getting a ticket.  That shit sells out in seconds.

    Love how most gaming mediums ignore the midwest.  This includes all the cons and other types of venues.


    Would love to see a good gaming convention near Indianapolis or Cincinnati.  Or at the very least have some MMO studios come to Origins or GenCon.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    Aye i would expect Titan or what ever there next MMO to be announced, push along cause SoE announcing EQNext well giving alot more details on it. Im putting my money on SoE on this one to be the better game well atleast for me. Blizzard new game may get more player attention though if they dont screw it up because they have a larger player base with WoW than EQ2, although i know alot of people who use to play EQ is realy intrested to see what SoE does with EQNext aswell.

    Possibly something on WoW and a whole lot on eSports from the business suits who run Blizzard I am guessing.

    time to put out something new and cutting edge Blizz instead of milking to death the old and tired (WoW exapansion, SC expansions, D3 expansions). Show us Titan and make it the best game of the next 10+ years. God wills it!
