Anyone know if it's planned to release some kind of battle.net for TQ where the save files are stored online to prevent cheating and to have a ladder or something?

No.

However possibly for TQ 2.

To go with what Dedo said, Iron Lore wanted closed multiplayer but THQ wasn't willing to pay for the hardware to support it, as at the time Titan Quest was a brand new game by a brand new company and THQ didn't want to sink the money into a game that wasn't a guaranteed slam-dunk as far as they were concerned.

Also my name's Phil IRL :shifty:

Doubt it...it creates a hook, a reason for them to create a TQ2 to make a buck...and they realistically made about the same without the closed as they would have if they did have closed, if not more because they didn't have to waste a boatload of cash on hardware and constant maintenance.

Exactly.

Even Blizzard didn't do it for the first Diablo.
