Blizzard's senior VP and co-founder, Frank Pearce, has confirmed that the developer is currently working on a new MMO, called Project Titan.

That Blizzard has been working on a new MMO has been rumoured and let slip a few times over the last few years, but this official confirmation arrives shortly after an alleged leaked roadmap for the company. The documents laid out projected release dates for Blizzard over the next few years, with Project Titan listed as a 2013 release.

'Titan is... the media is not meant to know anything about that.' Pearce told Destructoid.

'It's our next-gen MMO and we've only started talking about it in a limited fashion because we want to leverage the fact that we're working on something like that for the purpose of recruiting – getting some of the best talent in the industry on that.'

Pearce stopped short of confirming any other details about Project Titan, which is speculated to be a sci-fi MMOFPS and a brand new IP for Blizzard.

Other items on the alleged roadmap include a late 2011 release date for Diablo 3, opening up Battle.net to third parties, two further World of Warcraft expansions and 'WoW mobile'.
