Titan MMO won't be a Warcraft sequel

Blizzard: it's "completely new and fresh".

Blizzard's mysterious Titan MMO won't be a sequel to World of Warcraft, CEO Mike Morhaime has revealed.

Speaking at the annual DICE summit in Las Vegas – as reported by Ars Technica - Morhaime explained that the new title, rumoured to be launching in 2013, will instead cover bold new ground.

"Without giving away any details, we have some of our most experienced MMO developers, people who spent years working on the World of WarCraft team, working on this project," he said.

"We're really trying to leverage all the lessons we learned through the years. Some of which we were able to address in World of Warcraft and others that maybe because of the design decisions we've made, you just can't address.

"So we're kind of taking a step back with all that knowledge to make something that's completely new and fresh. We're not trying to make a WOW sequel."

In related news, Activision-Blizzard CFO Thomas Tippl yesterday confirmed that there will be at least two releases from the developer between now and the end of 2012 – though didn't confirm what those would be.
