Blizzard Next MMO Delayed

Avatar

Well, it seems that Blizzard and Valve are once again in a peculiar arms race, the type where both sides are desperately trying to not release something in a more infuriatingly tantalizing manner than the other. While Valve has crushed the hopes and dreams of gamers worldwide with repeated rumours of Half Life 3, Blizzard has done the same with Titan, the codename for WoW's spiritual sequel, and has just recently announced yet another major delay, with the possibility that they are starting over once again from scratch.

As to quote from a report Blizzard made in VentureBeat, an internal review has caused the development team to rethink its strategy concerning the game itself, stating that:

"We've always had a highly iterative development process, and the unannounced MMO is no exception. We've come to a point where we need to make some large design and technology changes to the game. We're using this opportunity to shift some of our resources to assist with other projects while the core team adapts our technology and tools to accommodate these new changes. Note that we haven't announced any dates for the MMO."

So, what do you think? A wise move? A desperate last flailing attempt at maintaining their declining empire? An MMO purely about giant pandas? We'll find out when the time comes...
