The Irvine, California-based company is hiring for Starcraft II, World of Warcraft, Diablo III, and Blizzard All-Stars, but no longer has open requisitions for its next-generation massively multiplayer online game.

A Blizzard Entertainment representative was not immediately available to comment.

Earlier this month, Blizzard Entertainment cofounder Mike Morhaime said Titan may not be subscription-based, or even an MMO, when it's released.

"We're in the process of selecting a new direction for the project and re-envisioning what we want the game to be," Morhaime said during an Activision Blizzard earnings call on August 1. "While we can't talk about the details yet, it is unlikely to be a subscription-based MMORPG."

At the end of May, Blizzard confirmed "large design and technology changes" for Titan. No official release date for the game has been announced so far.

Morhaime also confirmed at the time that several developers on Titan have been shifted to the World of Warcraft and Diablo development teams, though specific numbers were not disclosed.

Blizzard Entertainment's current MMO game, World of Warcraft, is the biggest subscription-based MMO game on the market. It launched in 2004 and had 7.7 million subscribers as of June 30.
