The Daily Grind: Do you think Blizzard will ever make another MMO?


So Overwatch is now in closed beta, which I imagine excites some people immensely. Any Blizzard product has that effect, I’ve noticed. But when I read the news, I became a little wistful instead of jazzed, mostly because it reminded me once again that Blizzard ditched its ambitious Project Titan MMO for something safer and far less massively multiplayer.

That’s Blizzard’s right, of course, and I wouldn’t even argue strongly that it was a bad business move. Having a diverse portfolio is a smart way to keep a large studio stable. Even so, I really would love to see what the minds there could do with another MMO. Maybe it won’t happen this year, or the next, or ever, but… yeah, I would like to see it.

Do you think Blizzard will ever make another MMO? What would be the studio’s best shot if so?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
