Blizzard has announced that development on their next-gen MMO project, code-named Titan, has been cancelled.

The company has been talking about the unnamed project for some time now, and it has apparently been in development for at least seven years. The company was reevaluating the project last year, and has come to the decision that, like Starcraft: Ghost before it, Titan will be shelved.

Blizzard never showed any images or video of what Titan was to be, whether it was a World of Warcraft follow-up, something aligned with the Starcraft universe, or something entirely new, but the team's heart just wasn't in it, according to Blizzard co-founder and CEO Mike Morhaime.

"We didn't find the fun," said Morhaime in an interview with Polygon. "We didn't find the passion. We talked about how we put it through a reevaluation period, and actually, what we reevaluated is whether that's the game we wanted to be making. The answer is no."

Smaller scale releases like Hearthstone played a role in the company's decision, helping them refocus their efforts on smaller projects the teams find more interesting.
