    Actually they had already reset diablo 3 once. And to some of us, it was a great game.

    Always respected Blizzards willingness to take as much time as needed on a project.

    And as Bill said I'm also excited for EQNext especially since SoE had the determination to reboot that project once. Hoping they really pull through with a great game.

    Well they did recently join sony to support PS4, so maybe they are going back to the drawing board to redesign the mmo to be cross-platform and to see how mmogs do on next gen consoles with FF A Realm Reborn and Destiny and whatever else is in the process.

    Hopefully they are having a bit of a rethink about their current policy to dumb down every game they have, I'm hiding from them incase they come round my house and start setting the great Blizzard game think tank on dumbing me and my stuff down as well ;)  On the flip side I am in with getting behind EQ Next also. Don't stuff it up S.O.E!

    I agree with others saying that Blizzard prefers to wait when there is uncertainty in the market, as there is with next-gen / sandbox MMOs on the horizon. Blizzard has always been really good at taking a look at what's already out there, seeing what works, and then applying it well. When WOW came it it did not introduce new concepts, just mastered pre-existing concepts.

    It's clear Blizzard wants to have the upper hand here.

    Sucks but not surprised "Soon" it's blizzard after all.

    This does give alot of room for EQ next tho!

    Didn't EQNext have something similar happen not too long ago?  I seem to recall they decided to scrap it and start over again, making it more sandboxy or something like that.  It is great that these companies want to make the next big thing really bad, but it seems like the development times are becoming absurd and we just have to continue waiting.

    My goodness, the number of rumours that had been flying about etc. just makes me think this now is just vaporware!

     

    Ah well, Blizzard are too worried about losing their grande standing as top MMO creator (due to revenue and bringing MMO scnene to the "world") and therefore I'd be surprised to ever see Titan!

    I was just thinking that. Plus Blizzard probably saw Destiny from the original halo makers and decided they weren't going to do that lol

    Yes. EQNext reset. They said it was to much like EQ 2.5 instead of the next iteration of EQ. It is also supposed to be more like a Sandbox. We will find out more at SOE Live.

    I'd rather have WoD over anything I had heard rumored about Titan.

    Hmmmm ... sort of makes you think:

     

    Where's all that money go?

  • SpellforgedSpellforged Belvidere, ILPosts: 458Member
    I wonder if they decided to remake it due to the negative reception of Diablo 3?  Could Titan have been a similar experience?  There's no way to tell, but I think the possibility exists.

    If done properly WoD is where I'd spend my Twilight years (yes I know how cheesy this comment is).
  • BrizlynBrizlyn Ladera Ranch, CAPosts: 70Member Uncommon

    Blizzard is playing it smart.

    They're going to watch and wait and see what other company comes up with the best MMO framework for the foreseeable future, and then copy it - and improve upon it.

    It's exactly what they did with WOW, copied the basic framework of the MMO's that came first, but improved on many aspects.

     I think that in a couple of years if they don't see anything groundbreaking come along in MMO's, they might scrap the entire thing and just say screw it.

    Was looking forward to it, but I'm presently enjoying PS2, GW2, and Neverwinter quite a lot.  Looking forward more now to EQ Next.

    Eggs, into one basket we will put them. You chose Smed? :wince:

     

    In Today's Official Announcement Blizzard States:

    "We don't think we could possibly make this audience happy, either. We'll milk what we have while we still have it, it should dwindle away for years. You're familiar with that, right, SoE, EA, Fun?"

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.
