Technically, Blizzard never announced their long-in-development MMORPG Titan. It was always one of those big open secrets. And now, seven years later, the game is cancelled, Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime tells Polygon.
"I wouldn't say no to ever doing an MMO again," Morhaime said to Polygon. "But I can say that right now, that's not where we want to be spending our time."
This comes in the wake of last year's news that the project code-named Titan went back to the drawing board after close to a decade of development. Rumors once suggested that the project was to be a sci-fi multiplayer game not unlike Destiny, which Blizzard's parent company Activision released earlier this month. But the company behind World of Warcraft never even gave so much of a hint as to what their next big MMO would actually have been.
And now it's gone. Polygon's got some more quotes and explanations from Morhaime, so head on over there for some more specifics on just why they cancelled Titan. ("We didn't find the fun... We didn't find the passion. We talked about how we put it through a reevaluation period, and actually, what we reevaluated is whether that's the game we really wanted to be making. The answer is no.")
