Blizzard Entertainment CEO Mike Morhaime revealed at the Activision Blizzard 2013 second quarter financial results conference call that the Next-Gen MMO code-named “Titan” will not be a subscription based MMO.
Morhaime: “I wanted to say a few words about our unannounced project code-named “Titan”. We are in the process of selecting a new direction for the project, and we are envisioning what we want the game to be.
And while we can’t talk about the details yet, it is unlikely to be a subscription-based MMORPG. I also want to reiterate that there has not been an official announcement or projected release date.
What I can say is that the commitment to quality has always been at the core of Blizzard’s values, and we have gone through these type of iterative development process several times in the past on the way to define genre-defining games.
As we continue our assessment, we have shifted some of the resources from the team to other franchises including World of Warcraft and Diablo III, and Blizzard All-Stars — which we believe will add immense value to those projects.”
