There have been whispers on the internet winds for a while now about a Blizzard project named "Titan", supposedly the company's follow-up to the world-conquering World of Warcraft. Well, Blizzard is now speaking a little louder on the subject.

"The media is not meant to know anything about [Titan].", World of Warcraft executive producer Frank Pearce tells Destructoid. "It's our next gen MMO and we've only started talking about it in a limited fashion because we want to leverage the fact that we're working on something like that for the purpose of recruiting–-getting some of the best talent in the industry on that."

A few things stand out. One, while we kind of knew this was happening, it's nice to hear Blizzard speak publicly about work on a new MMO, because despite its continued popularity, World of Warcraft is getting a little long in the tooth. And two, it's adorable hearing the guys who make World of Warcraft get concerned they're somehow short on people who know what they're doing when it comes to online games.
