The date has been extended for the Blizzard MMO (massively multiplayer online) game to 2016. This decision regarding the unannounced MMO game was taken after much deliberation and wavering. Fans will have to wait three more years since the launch has been postponed for now at least.
The gaming giant, Blizzard Entertainment has come up with novel means of introducing its large fan base to some high tech fun and exciting sensory stimulation. But the release of its MMO game has been procrastinated for the present. According to Venture Beat, this is a source of disappointment and a let down for the gamers who are after every novel adrenaline high. Over a hundred developers were hard at work on the project which has been put off for now. Out of the hundred only seventy are left after a massive downsizing. The developers who were laid off were re-assigned to other tasks. The time scale for completion has been pushed three years forward.
With the enviable code name of “Titan” this project is getting some TLC (tender loving care) from its core team of diligent workers. The basic amenity that Blizzard lends its users is the much acclaimed ‘World of Warcraft”. Generating over a billion dollars in annual revenue, this means of huge profits has been up for subscription by so many eager gaming experts who get their kicks by playing in sync with the interactive video graphics.
The spokespersons at Blizzard have confirmed the rumor. The slowing down of the production process is something that is part and parcel of the gaming industry, according to the company’s representatives. Some changes figured in the transformed plans and so the fans will just have to wait till 2016. It is a bit sad since so many were hopeful that Titan would be coming out soon. But that didn’t materialize. The bad news hit the gaming crowd like a fire and brimstone glimpse of hell. It was not a very welcome piece of news.
With World of Warcraft sales in a bit of a slump right at this moment, what these delaying tactics are meant to accomplish is beyond the comprehension of many. Either Blizzard has some technological special effects that it wants to incorporate into the structure of the game or there lies some other mysterious ploy in its arsenal that will only be revealed in the future. No matter which angle you see it from the decision was a depressing one for the consumers whose hopes were dashed to the ground. Now the endless wait will have to start and no one is happy about it.
