Re­mem­ber Ti­tan

EDGE - - HYPE -

Over­watch has been claimed to be the PvP el­e­ment of Bliz­zard’s aborted Project Ti­tan, an MMOG that was in de­vel­op­ment for years and sub­ject to at least one ma­jor re­boot be­fore its can­cel­la­tion. There are some sim­i­lar­i­ties, in­clud­ing a near­future Earth set­ting and even maps be­ing car­ried over to the new game, yet Ka­plan says that call­ing

Over­watch a sliced-up glimpse of what could have been is rad­i­cally over­stat­ing the mat­ter. “Over­watch is com­pletely its own game. There were some de­sign ideas and con­cept art that we ex­plored and brought across from Project

Ti­tan, but there was so much just not work­ing on it that there wasn’t much we could carry over.”
