Azeroth Needs to Stay Strong Until at Least 2016 May 29, 2013Posted by Wilhelm Arcturus in Blizzard, World of Warcraft.
According to Venture Beat, the Blizzard project code named Titan, the potential next big thing from the company, has been sent back to the drawing board and is now unlikely to see the light of day before 2016.
Developers have been diverted to other projects while the core team starts over.
So, World of Warcraft will be paying most of the bills at least until then, which puts a little bit of pressure on the franchise after it dropped another 1.3 million subscribers last quarter. Still insanely profitable, but that line is headed in the wrong direction.
Meanwhile, no Diablo III expansion has been announced yet. StarCraft II just got an expansion, so the next one is probably two years off. And Blizzard All-Stars, a free-to-play MOBA is reported to be coming along, but I cannot imagine that will be live before the end of the year.
