    The following is just idle speculation of course.

    Microsoft once planned a Halo MMO codenamed Titan, which they then dropped around the same time the name showed up on a certain accidental spreadsheet public reveal. Just recently there has been heavy speculation on Microsoft buying Activision-Blizzard.

     

    Man I hate to do this without a link, but I swear I read an article that it was 100% not going to be halo(I wouldn't mind a halo mmo however) I've seen many articles saying it will be a brand new IP, that rules out WoW spinoff, starcraft, and halo but something totally new

    You could be right, but it's all speculation :)

    I'd love to see a Halo MMO, even a Ringworld MMO would be great.

    I suggest you guys go back and read all the articles from the last 4 GDCs.

    TItan will have...

    1. player generated content.
    2. a shop.
    3. microtransactions.
    4. full transactions (content/big items like WoW mounts)
    5. mobile access, phone apps.
    6. cross platform, PC/console/tablet
    7. Diablo 3 style real money market
    8. more ways to access parts of the game via mobile apps
    That will go along with the typical MMO content.

    none of those things are very important to me (positively or negatively). I want to know if the combat is fun, and if the setting is intereting.

    Apparently earlier this year there were leaked documents or something of the sort stating Titan would be a FPS, but that seems highly unlikely to me. FPS games pander to a niche audience and if they are creating something huge a lot of people need to be able to enjoy it.

    it will be Call of Duty:Pandarian Warfare 

    mark my words

  • MetentsoMetentso Member UncommonPosts: 1,437

    It will be the game worth upgrading my 5yo computer for.

    I hope.

    You know, I started MMOs with Final Fantasy 11 and Shadowbane.

     

    Blizzard could really do some amazing stuff it they tried to emulate the way that Shadowbane pulled off the most fascinating mix of RTS and MMO (in that guilds could build cities and the like, as well as have them destroyed) that I think Blizzard may be trying to get back to in like they did in Warcraft, only in an MMO format.

     

    I really hope that Blizzard doesn't screw Titan up.  It really worries me that Blizzard is happy with the direction that WoW is going... does not bode well, but I want to have faith in them.

    Uh .. FPS has a niche audience? How many play Halo 3? How many copies of Bioshock 1 & 2 are sold?

    I don't really have an idea of what it would be, if I had to gueas it would be like an MMORPG RTS hybrid. I don't really see them going sandbox, but I guess it's not out of the question. I think Blizzard could make even sandbox mainstream.

Every chat message that you send in game will automatically charge you 25 cents on your credit card.


    RMAH .. i don't mind. In fact, it is cool to be able to sell virtual stuff finally. So far, the RMAH in D3 is a net positive for me (both in cash flow & fun). It is a small amount of money .. but real money feel more "valuable" than fake gold.

    I think an RMAH with a WoW type game could work. Not really for the gear but more for the consumable stuff that many don't want to farm for, like gems, enchants, pots, etc.

    I'd want to see a diablo style MMO. I'd sub to that. OR a SC II style MMO. I think it would be cool to like level up a dark templar or a zealot or something like that.

    Read all of them. Awesome series. Even the ones with his son.

    Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

    Or crafting material. Actually i don't mind RMAH for gear either. SOMEONE has to earn the gear first. It is really little difference than paying a friend for a BOE item.

    Actually i think Diablo should stick to ARPG. The core of D is dungeon roam and item progression. I don't think a world will add much to that.

    I certainly don't mind more Diablo games though. I would like to see Diablo type games in different settings. There isn't a good sci-fi version yet.

    I doubt Titan will be fantasy.. So what's left? Sci-fi or Horror?  Bliz said it wasn't going to be Starcraft, but that doesn't mean it won't be sci fi.. maybe similar to Eve?..  And I honestly don't see them going with "realistic" graphics either.. Whatever it's suppose to be, I just hope they get away from "gear grind" like WoW, or I won't bother..

    Titan will be a GW2 clone with Tera combat, TSW setting/missions, and SWTOR style personal story. Obviously.
  • dave6660dave6660 Member UncommonPosts: 2,693

    Blizzard will pick up the project we've all been waiting for...

    World of Duke Nukem Forever.

    “There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair we call life when a man takes this whole universe for a vast practical joke, though the wit thereof he but dimly discerns, and more than suspects that the joke is at nobody's expense but his own.”

    On August 28, during the official GW2 release party, Blizzard will be introduced as the REAL creaters of GW2 and that Titan is the super-double secret project name for GW2.

     

    :-)

    Harbinger, unfortunately, is not very successful.

    Actually the most successful Diablo type game NOT in a fantasy setting are the Xmen Legends, and Marvel Ultiamate Alliance games.. The super hero genre fit right in with all the power abilities and upgrades, and isometrics furious combat.
