If circulating rumors regarding Vivendi’s sale of shares in Activision are true, then there’s going to be some very happy MMO fans out there, as Blizzard may be forced to announce their mysterious MMO, Titan, to excite potential investors.
Seeking Alpha analyst Jeff Borack believes that Blizzard could be forced to disclose information regarding Titan to drum up excitement, and purchasers, for Activision’s stock. So far, the MMO giant has remained tight lipped about the game, only offering a tentative Q4 2013 release window.
Titan is set to play a key role in Activision’s long-term share value, according to Borack, with Blizzard pouring tens of millions of dollars into R&D every year to develop the game. Titan has the ability to quickly eclipse World of Warcraft, just by carrying the Blizzard name, making it a lucrative asset to own.
As little as a short press release could be enough to drum up a ton of investment dollars for the company, and send the MMO world into a frenzy.
