Mike Morhaime shares more on project during recent earnings call.
If there were any doubts about the subscription model’s impending demise, Blizzard president Mike Morhaime just hammered a further nail in the coffin. Speaking during a recent Activision Blizzard earnings call, Morhaime provided an update on the firm’s unannounced MMO, codenamed Project Titan.
“Before I get into the other game updates, I want to say a few words about our unannounced project, codename Titan. We're in the process of selecting a new direction for the project and re-envisioning what we want the game to be. And while we can't talk about the details yet, it is unlikely to be a subscription-based MMORPG.”
Morhaime went on to add that resources had been reassigned to other games in Blizzard’s line-up, including World of Warcraft and Blizzard All-Stars. He also reaffirmed that Hearthstone is set to launch this year on Windows and Mac, with an iPad version following soon after.
