You'd think they'd get a boost from bringing in people that were working on Titan. I don't know how many came over to WoW, but they made it seem like it wasn't a small number.

I wonder if they were planning to let players fly in Titan.
Or enjoy class abilities in PvE without worrying about whether they'd be nerfed for the sake of PvP "balance".
Or get visually similar armor sets from e-z mode raiding.
why so serious?

Titan's dead. That thing will never see the light of day. I sold my stock in ATVI the day I found out that news.

Yes it's dead. I'm implying that the terrible ideas that Blizzard is implementing in WoFWAB were thought up by the Titan refugees.

I don't really think the Titan people got moved back to Wow, other than the mainline grunts. I think the functional design people are on other projects we don't know about yet.

Blizzard is declaring that WoW has a terminal disease without saying it out loud. At other times when numbers have dropped, they've addressed it in the press along with a series of ideas that they believe will bring them back. In this particular case they are saying very little about the long gap and doing less.

I don't think Blizzard believes WoW can bring them back anymore. If they did, there would be more response to the flagging numbers than no content updates for 9 months. There would be more response to customer problems rather than removing flying from the xpac, in a move we can only assume will reduce development efforts on art assets, and bring back invisible walls. There would be more response to the criticisms of investors that the company has now assumed over four and a half billion dollars in debt.

Sometime around '09 I thought they'd said they only planned for the game through level 100 anyway.  It's reaching the expected end of the lifecycle. 

I believe they planned for players to transition to Titan once this next x-pac was over in their initial plans. I'm willing to bet they didn't have a plan B, because they've been riding pretty high for a while.

Nah, that was fanwank by idiots like the "Here's all the expansions" fake-leak.
