It looks like the long-rumored, highly-anticipated next-gen MMO project, codenamed “Titan”, being developed by Blizzard Entertainment is no more.

This is not the first high-profile game to be canned at Blizzard – the best example I can think of at this moment was the highly-anticipated StarCraft Ghost. However, this is possibly the most expensive cancellation the company has endured with a rumored $50 million dollars to date being spent on its development.
