Blizzard Cancels Titian MMO

Blizzard has decided to drop work on their next-generation MMO game Titian. According to some reports the reason behind the cancellation was that they “didn’t find the fun”. Exactly what that means we are not 100% sure, but according to Blizzard this move will allow them to create something even better.

100 million registered WoW accounts

Blizzard recently praised their achievements with the new, fairly extensive Infographic through which they discovered a number of details about the World of Warcraft. Famous MMORPG has so far recorded more than 100 million registered accounts.

While the bigger part, or rather all, of MMORPG developers eventually move to free-to-play business model, Blizzard with World of Warcraft obviously does not want to move in this direction yet.

Mists of Pandaria limping behind Catacylsm


Looks like WoW players prefer Dragons over Pandas since their latest expansion didn’t achieve as much success as the one before. “Mists of Pandaria” has been out for over a week now and during the first week of sales they sold 2.7 million copies. This is quite an impressive number, but still lower than Cataclysm sales as they sold 3.3 million in first week. Maybe the developers didn’t do as good on this one since the main highlight is discovering the new race of panda bears. In the Cataclysm dragon Deathwing destroyed Azeroth and it's quite obvious that world destruction by a giant dragon is more interesting than running around as a panda.

diablo_3dhackActivision Blizzard is striking back at all of the recent press claiming that they (Blizzard) have a serious security issue. As we have told you before their actions of blaming the users and claiming that the thousands of compromised accounts are all due to spyware and keyloggers (without any proof of this by the way) is part of their corporate profile. However they are now making what amounts to threats against people posting about this on their forums.

diablo_3dhackSo far we stayed away from the whole Diablo III fiasco (with the exception of a poll on the site about it). For the most part there is simply too many stories about it, it is almost as bad as all of the “tech” news that is about Zuckerberg’s wedding. Sure Diablo was a great game and from many accounts Diablo III is an even better follow on. The problem is that although Blizzard’s decision to allow for the game to be distributed online was a great idea and allowed people to gain access to it on launch day in a way that we have not seen in a long time, there are and always will be issues with running online games.
