I found this site while trying to see if there is any additional information about Titan out yet. I made this fake forum account because I don't want to get anyone in trouble. As such, call this a rumor since I hope there is no way for anyone to find out my identity or credibility.
Last year I was talking with with some people that are Blizzard staff and I asked about project Titan (I will not mention where I talked to them or how I know them to protect their identities). While they were pretty tight lipped about it, they did reveal a few very basic things about the game.
First, they said that the name Titan is a code word derived from large mechanical-esk things in the game. The setting and mechanical-like 'Titans' were described to be as something akin to what you can find in the movie Wild Wild West (as in not mecha and not humanoid per say). They themselves seemed to have a hard time describing the setting or were being purposely cryptic. *Edit for clarity* they said not the same as Wild Wild West, just that was the closest approximation to the setting they could think of and I belive they where more refering to the 'Titans' beings, not the cowboy thing.
Second, it was strongly hinted that the game will have a MUCH MUCH heavier social aspect than any of their previous games, the social aspect being such an integral part of the game that they don't believe it will make it a major contender with WoW. They would not elaborate and I did not want to push my luck since they should not even mention these small things.
Third, they said one big reason they are not releasing info on the game despite the amount of time and resources already put into it is because the game is so incredibly complex in the amount of different things you can do in it that many entire portions and systems in the game may get scrapped/replaced/implemented at a much later date. (as an aside, this lead to a conversation about the Blizzard staff being cranky that so many people are idiots who take everything Blizzard considers as a possibility to put in their games as set in stone which is one of the main reasons they can't freely discuss the game)
I could get no more information other than that and me asking more about it makes the people I know uncomfortable. At the same time I could clearly see that they are REALLY excited about the game and really wanted to spill all the beans about it if they could do so without losing their job. They were so eager to talk about it but could not that I thought they must have leaked other things to other people so I came to this site to see if I can get any more info other than those small tidbits I got and it seems the answer is 'not really'.
If the rumors by alphaNoid are correct, the info I have about the setting in conjecture with the statement by alphaNoid about the game not being a true original IP may help people theorize what kind of game Titan will be. I am amazed at how well Blizzard has prevented info from sneaking out!
