Blizzcon 2013 Announcements

I am very hopeful that Blizzard will announce "Titan"...whatever that is, this year at Blizzcon.  Any thoughts to the contrary? Is there any indication that the market is prepared for another blizzard MMO?

    Blizzard traditionally sets up a World Wide Invitation to announce/showcase entirely new games.  Blizzcon is typically reserved for fan-fare and expansions.

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    I highly doubt it. It makes no sense from a business standpoint, as far as I am concerned they have years to work on Titan before they need to release it, otherwise it will just compete with WoW for subs. They will wait till WoW is dying in the next couple of years before anything big happens is my guess.

    Take it or leave it, I may be wrong.

    I think it may be a good time for the announcement. Most AAA games announce years before launch, e.g., SWTOR 2008 announced.

    Douftful that will be the case.  They've already made statements that"Titan" will not be competeing directly.  From what I recall something along the lines that for those that want the gear grind mechanics then WoW will be their MMO of choice while "Titan" will be targeting a different sort of audiance.  It makes no snese to release it when WoW is dying since all that does is hurt their pockets because of loss of customers which might be permenently lost.  They'll release it when it's ready but it still has a long ways to go.

    Well that's kind of disheartening. I have nearly lost faith in blizz since WoTLK, nothing good really has come out of the studio, was hoping they could get back to the basics on what made WoW good with Titan. I'm going to be highly disappointed if it's some sci fi MMOFPS or some other experiment like the market is currently flooded with. Heres to hoping they don't make it too groundbreaking and stick to what works while leaving out what doesn't work :D

    That would be good enough for me.

    What I really hope it to be is something similar to Second LIfe, but with modern graphics, futuristic setting (near future) and flexible constructor to build everything we want. Also possibility to convert virtual dollars into real ones, and freedom to explore and colonize other planets. Now that would be cool

    Would be disappointed if its just another MMOFPS

    PvP for Diablo. Wait? Is Blizzcon a commedy club?

    i have no idea about the dev cycle

     

    we do know Titan has been in development for at least 5 years (since 2007)

    http://www.1up.com/news/blizzard-confirms-mmo-development

     

    we also know Titan has been supposedly "playable inhouse" for the last 2 years

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-03-08-blizzard-playing-titan-mmo-already

     

    Blizzard said they dont mind cannibalizing themselves

    http://gamasutra.com/view/news/33623/Blizzards_Pearce_Diablo_III_Could_Cannibalize_WoW_Before_Titan.php#.USUaifLxHJQ

    "it's better we cannibalize them ourselves than let someone else do that,

    because if we cannibalize them ourselves, they're still a Blizzard customer,"
