    Next-gen, this term I distrust, Rift was called next-gen. And seeing how extremely conservative Blizzard Developers are regarding the base mechanics of their games, I'd say next-gen is not the correct term.

    I agree whole-heartedly. Next-gen doesn't say anything useful and only creates pointless hype.

    Let´s say Blizzard is smart enough to make an MMO which does not interfere with their existing games WoW and perhaps soon Diablo3: which theme will they choose? Hmm, could it even be a Diablo World? Or Call of Duty Universe (Activision)?

    No, it couldn't.

    Why? well, because Blizzard has already confirmed many times that the new mmo is going to be a completely new IP, and not related to existing titles.

    Call of Guitar Herocraft Online. With Bobby Kotick in charge. Sounds lovely don't you think?

    It will possibly be next gen in that it will be release in the next generation. There is a strong possibility that the game will sport a last gen mechanic and graphical style and below average learning curve gameplay style to cover every age range possible. That would lead us to think that all that will lead to 2 possible outcomes: mediocre game played by millions with the only excuse being Im playing with my friends, because everyone plays it, and I already wasted to much time on it Im not gonna just throw it all away. And the second outcome could be a possibly good game that attracts a certain group of players, and while it doesn't cater to a wider audience it will be succesful(just not billion dollar succesful).

     

    If the second probability turns out correct I expect for the game to slowly turn into the first outcome thus improving the cash flow for the company. After all, we are talking about Activision. And dont defend this is Blizzard. They Are called Activision Blizzard. If one is not profitable the other comes and makes it so.

     

    Good day.

    Unfortunately for the folks at Ensemble working on "Titan" (the codename for the Halo MMO)...

    Does anyone else see the links? Sure, it's a new IP for Blizzard, but that doesn't mean it's not from somewhere else Sci-fi, check. FPS, check. "Titan"-codename, check.

    Blizzard made the biggest mistake of all. 

     

    They didnt call it Project Titancraft.

     

    Everyone knows that if it doesnt have craft in its name, itll fail.

    Reskinned... Halo project?

    So it's basically a District 9 MMORPG?

    Their entire goal with titan is to not take away market share from WoW. They have said it will be completely different.

     id really like to see you post a link to a quote where an employee of Trion calls the game next gen.  i believe this rumor got started when someone interviewing a dev from trion used the term.  i have never been able to find anm employee referring to the game as next gen.

    We aren't getting next generation until we have next generation hardware..

     

    such as

     

    http://www.fastcompany.com/news/2008/11/16-minority-report-g-speak.html

     

    or

     

    http://singularityhub.com/2010/03/07/intendix-the-brain-computer-interface-goes-commercial-video/

     

    or

     

    http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9141180/Intel_Chips_in_brains_will_control_computers_by_2020

     

    Frankly people toss around "next generation" way too flippant these days, therefore we are all becoming more and more cynical about anything new and " cutting edge ".

    Blizzard is pretty savvy. This ..whatever will not fight WoW. It will have to compliment WoW perhaps to draw the WoWers who are leaving back in. I wouldn't be surprised if they have in-WoW events to win stuff usable in Titan and/or bonuses for those who buy Titan after they've had a current WoW sub for 6 months or something.

     

    Yes. Conspiracy theory 101.

    "Rift is the complete next generation in online gaming"

    Considering the phrase "next-gen" means it's iterated and builds on the generations of MMOs before it, that is an apt description.

    I don't think most forum-goers know how to use that phrase properly, nor is it much more than a hype phrase, really.

    they are calling this game gen since it is a shooter or are they bringing in something new in the table?

    If I were you I would inject a heavy dose of skepticism into your reality if you are looking forward to Titan just because that guy called it "next-gen". It's only a marketing term and nothing good can come of it.
