World of Warcraft's Successor Delayed by BlizzardJohn Llewellyn Martin |
The latest news about Blizzard's massively-multiplayer online role-playing game that's meant to World of Warcraft's successor says that it will be delayed until 2016. So Blizzard fans who were waiting for another reason to lose hours of sleep and score epic loot for a monthly fee shouldn't hold their breath.
According to VentureBeat, the game, known as "Project Titan," has been delayed. They don't name the source, but they say that Blizzard has reduced the development team from 100 to 70 positions, assigning members to different projects while keeping the core team around to overhaul the game completely.
Shon Damron, a Blizzard spokesperson, said, "We’ve always had a highly iterative development process, and the unannounced MMO is no exception. We’ve come to a point where we need to make some large design and technology changes to the game. We’re using this opportunity to shift some of our resources to assist with other projects while the core team adapts our technology and tools to accommodate these new changes. Note that we haven’t announced any dates for the MMO.”
It looks like we'll have to wait even longer to see what Blizzard has in store for us in terms of a new MMO. But with the next BlizzCon coming up in November, we're sure that they'll announce some more goodies to tide us over until they officially announce and release Project Titan.
Let us know your thoughts and whether or not you're disappointed in Blizzard delaying its next big MMO.
