Blizzard cancels “Titan”

“World of Warcraft” developers Blizzard made the difficult decision to cancel production of their next-generation massively-multiplayer online game, “Titan.”

Presumed to be in development for years, Blizzard confirmed the actual existence and title of the game in 2010.

The science-fiction MMO was to take place on a world like Earth after successfully fighting off an alien invasion.

While analysts say the decision could have cost Blizzard tens of millions of dollars, harming their reputation by releasing a sub-standard game could have been even more costly.

Check out the interview with Polygon.
