Great video. And props to the Blizzard team, you guys created an amazing experience
Was anyone else thrown off by the voice of Tracer the first time you heard it? Bit too British imo.
I got an ad for Paladins before this video 😂😂😂
wow cities are built by just 1 person? i thought entire teams worked on that
U can see the Ana scope
Am I the only person who feels like they keep seeing Ana's scoped sniper overlay on the different monitors??
Ana was on one of the testing monitors, and this video was uploaded way before she was ever announced :O
PINK GUY AT 5:18
This is surprisingly emotional. :')
Excuse me Chris Metzen But whos your favorite character that was made in the game?
Could anyone tell me the song that begins at 15:35?
KLAYMEN FROM THE NEVERHOOD IS ON A DESK! <3
Beautiful documentary, thank you for sharing. God bless
1:00 That actually reminds me of Gmod (Garry's mod).
now that overwatch is a proven success titan would make a lot of sense in the future
I'm still sad that you let the Dota mode go to in Riot Games possession 🙁
Overwatch really is more than a game.
10:13 you can see them working on ana
when I was a kid I absolutely loved Blizzard they made the best games on the planet from Diablo to StarCraft I grew up on this shit.. then Blizzard just kinda faded away for me after I finished wow….. im glad to say I picked up overwatch finally after not thinking I would ever like it. im in absolute game heaven right now with overwatch. Blizzard has won me back and I couldn't be more happy about it……. fear my junkrat
Is that an Ana scope I see?
Learn how to make a proper matchmaking and ranking system. Thanks.
I thank the fall of titan because if it didn't fail i'd be stuck playing TF2, or even quit gaming (im not into the mmo/moba/rpg stuff)
Who's watching in 2017?
Watched my brother playing warcraft 2 as a kid, he would let me press keyboard shortcuts sometimes. Then played warcraft 3 in high school. Bought the original box set or wow, but never got the time to play it. Now watching the devs talk about overwatch got me playing it. So much fun. My first multiplayer shooter since Counter strike 1.3. Blizzard is amazing
This is amazing. Super well done.
hello. Overwatch as created with Unity or UE4 ? or a other game creator ? Sry for thé level of m'y English becausd im french
I think titan still would have been a great game to play.
This was incredible Gamespot! Thanks
So dramatic ResidentSleeper
I came to learn about titan but the first 10 minutes was about everything but that ResidentSleeper.
the footage gathered for ahl is pretty embarassing, that's what, 7 fps? people actually perceive that as the game being bad, so good on you for promoting that image
I made memories in WoW that will stick with me until I die. I played from Vanilla and stopped about 4 years ago. It was beautiful and I made true friends that have lasted ever since and I've met and become friends outside games, close friends.
It's humbling how much Blizzard defends Titan and will never straight up talk about it. I just, you don't work on a game THAT long and NOT use at least SOME of those concepts as even a jumping off point for the game. And also, "Titan" was always a codename, and never literally describing the genre of the game, so who's to say the MMO wasn't gonna be eventually called, "Overwatch"? It's an interesting mystery 🙂
Man I want MMOs to come back. PC gaming is in it's best spot ever we need a new one that can change it all.
watching in 2019: Sadly OverWatch is slowly dying now. 🙁
shows the stark fracturing of company values pushing the real enthusiastic people away from the business
What happened to the Blizzard that I uuuuusssseeeed to knoooooowwww??
7 minutes in and they are still talking about warcraft games and going to duskwood..
14:04 Quite sad that they became what they didn't want to become.
omg there’s still a video on YouTube where the comments… are actually ABOUT THE VIDEO
When I heard Danny start talking I went to check if this was a no clip vid or not
Watching in 2021. I picked up this game during quarantine last year June, and am in love with it. I found so many friends and joy in this game. I would say it really saved me from going insane living alone.
It's like the couple on facebook , you see all the pretty and awesome things on the outside , but you do'nt see how shitty everything actually is on the inside
It was Titan, not Activision, that actually broke Blizzard's back and self-esteem… It was pretty obvious to me from the very beginning of said project… From what I heard, Blizz was in great debt… Titan development was expensive AF and they lost all the money… Hence, they got sold to Activision. With all the money they got from WoW, they should have focused on 2-3 smaller projects and diversify the risk… They bet everything on one card and failed horribly.
