The World of Warcraft developer Blizzard breaks off about 50 percent of the games he developed. One of the most well-known examples of a canceled project was the MMO Titan. Overwatch eventually became elements of this game, but now we have a new look at why Titan was never released.
Mike Morhaime, founder of Blizzard, who has since left the company, spoke at Gamelab about the Project Congress in Barcelona this week. He said it was planned to be a "next-generation MMO," but it proved too ambitious.
"We did not control the scope," Morhaime said, as Eurogamer reported. "It was very ambitious, it was a brand new universe, and it was supposed to be the next generation MMO, doing all sorts of different things, having different modes, building two games in parallel, and it was really difficult." to get together.
Blizzards Overwatch was born from the Titans ashes, and Morhaime talked more about how important it was to call this game "one of the best decisions we've made."
It's going to be a long time It will take a while for it to be delivered and turned into a great game, "he explained.
Jeff Kaplan, Director of Overwatch, who worked on Titan, commented, "We have failed in every respect … In every way a project can fail, it was devastating."
Titan was officially canceled in 201
Why Titanium was canceled, Morhaime B lizzard said, "did not enjoy it … found it Passion is not. "
The latest project that Blizzard canceled was, according to a report, a StarCraft first-person shooter. According to reports, Blizzard has sunk the project, which is allegedly under development for two years, to focus on Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2.
