It's funny how these things happen. I was just pondering this morning, as I left for work and locked my front door, what Blizzard's next MMO is likely to be. And then, I read this article later in the day and I found it interesting that others might have the same ideas.
You see, my gut feeling says that Blizzard's next MMO, the one they are working in secret on, the one code-named "Titan", will be in the world of Starcraft. The article specifically mentions that the SC MMO won't be Titan but with Blizzard you never know.
If I were a gambling man I would place all my bets on Starcraft as their next MMO. Of course, there is a high possibility that I am wrong but that's exactly why I don't gamble in real life :)
Blizzard stated that their next MMO will be a new IP (Intellectual Property). Everyone has taken that to mean that it won't take place in the Warcraft, Starcraft or Diablo universes. But this may be sly-speak for "Titan will be a new genre in an existing universe". This would fit perfectly with a Starcraft MMO. An MMO would be a new genre in the Starcraft universe. Who knows, maybe Titan is actually the scrapped Starcraft Ghost.
Meh, too much speculation. As I said before, I would really like to see a kick-ass MMO in a technologically advanced universe such as Starcraft. Either way, I'm 99% certain that this next MMO will not take place in another fantasy setting. Amirite or amirite?
