Although Blizzcon 2013 carried several new announcements, including a new expansion for World of Warcraft and new details regarding Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard isn't ready to talk about their other MMO, Titan. In an interview with Blizzard's Paul Sams at the show earlier today, the COO said, "We really aren’t talking about that product right now."

But regarding new IPs in general, Sams said, "I think that all of us would love to see us do a new franchise. What that really comes down to is having the right game, having the right reasons, and having the right kind of world to wrap around that game."

"I think it’s difficult to launch a new franchise. I think it’s risky to launch a new franchise, but that has never been the reason to deter us." Sams said. "It’s always been about doing the game we think we want to play next. What is the best franchise for that? Is it an existing franchise or is it one we should create? I think we have no concern and no hesitancy about building a new franchise if we think we have the right ideas and the right game to pair it with. Hopefully we’ll have some of those things to talk about in the future."
