Blizzard has "lots of projects" that we "fortunately" don't know

Keeping development of World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III and the 'Titan' MMO project forever held close to the Blizzard studio chest is hard work.

Amazingly those are just the ones Blizzard let us get our gamer noses stuck into, because they've actually got "lots of projects" behind closed doors.

"You're referring to our unannounced MMO project, which is unannounced, so I can't really tell you much about it," said Blizzard co-founder Mike Morhaime when asked about their 'Titan' MMO project in the works.

"And there are lots of projects that we're not talking about," added fellow studio co-founder Frank Pearce. "Fortunately you don't know about any of them," said Morhaime.

Blizzard are keeping any Titan details extremely secret. "We can't I'm afraid. But on Titan what we can say is that we think of it as a next generation MMO. We've learned a lot over the past 12 years in developing and running WoW, so we've called upon some of our most experienced developers to seed a new project," explained Morhaime.

"It's definitely not going to be a sequel or replacement for WoW. It will be a different experience set in a different world. But we don't have anything else to say."

What else do you think Blizzard has working behind the scenes?

Any Dev/Pub could 'let slip' that there were plenty of titles being worked on that we, the great un-washed and the media knew nothing of. Doesn't make it true, though. What we already know they are working on is what I want to know about....nothing more, nothing less. Except release dates, thank you.

Meh, I don't care what else they're working on as long as they finish and release Diablo 3 by the end of the year.

Considering the time table of Blizzard - working on secret projects means they will most likely be out in six years and blow our minds then...

Blizzard is a good and solid game development company. But they become a bit money hungry. I hope that it doesn't affect Diablo 3. If it does, there will be many angry fans with torches in front of their offices. :)
