    Seven years of vaporware cost them $200 million but it's ok, they make that back in one month with Hearthstone.

    R.I.P. Project DestinyTitan.

    "...they canceled StarCraft Ghost but doing so has always resulted in better-quality work."

    Better work?! Like they did with Diablo 3?!
    D3 launched in 2012 and just a month or 2 ago they finally patched it to a state where its close to competing with D2 in terms of loot&gem quality.
    Other than that with gameplay and gear variety and build choice the game is bland and not the same quality as D2.

    I'm not sure what these guys mean with quality work, maybe because we grew up with games and expect the games to evolve as we grow up and keep pace us older gamers expect too much?

    Cataclysm and Mists were yawns compared to Burning Crusade and the god of all expansions, Wrath of the Lich King. With WoW still doing quite well and people excited about another 10 level expansion, they would only be doing battle with themselves.
    Warlords looks to be legit.

    I agree with Blizzard in one thing. And that is that if they do not have a passion for the game they will not make it.

    I really liked Cataclysm more than wotlk, maybe it was due to the fact that I actually raided Deathwing.

    Sad that I stopped at hard mode.

    I think we liked tbc because it was the first expansion and brought many of the things we loved about expansions (like piles of new gear with tons of stats). But it was also before the group finder was around, and that was rough.

    I'm not really bummed about Titan... I wasn't planning on playing it, but I was very curious to see what Blizz could do with an MMO they built from the ground up after learning so many lessons from WoW. They probably tried to make it as big and comprehensive as WoW and it lead to exponential scope creep.

    I was thinking the same thing. I don't know how true it is, but I was thinking it. Makes you wonder if Blizzard will survive, if they ever suffer a selfesteem hit from their current game series dying. But then again that may be what it takes, to get them motivated and hyped for the creation of a new game title.
