Blizzard have revealed that their upcoming MMO, currently titled Project Titan, is unlikely to ask for a monthly subscription.
Speaking to company investors, Blizzard CEO Michel Morhaime stated (Thanks Seeking Alpha):
I want to say a few words about our unannounced project, codename Titan, We’re in the process of selecting a new direction for the project and re-envisioning what we want the game to be.
And while we can’t talk about the details yet, it is unlikely to be a subscription-based MMORPG. I also want to reiterate that there has not been an official announced or projected release date. What I can say is that the commitment’s quality has always been at the core of Blizzard values. And we’ve gone through this type of iterative development process several times in the past on the way to creating genre-defining games.
As we continue our assessment, we have shifted some of the resources from the team to our other franchises, including World of Warcraft and Blizzard All-Stars, which we believe will add immense value to those projects.
