Well, one of the industry’s worst-kept secrets has been officially put to rest courtesy of Game Informer. There is in fact an Elder Scrolls MMO in the works, and ZeniMax Online has chosen the print magazine for its initial reveal.
Despite a professed lack of interest in MMOs from Elder Scrolls notable Todd Howard, the project has been ongoing for a number of years now, according to the game’s first press release. The dev team is headed up by Matt Firor, known primarily to gamers for his work on Dark Age of Camelot. Like DAoC, the new Elder Scrolls title will feature three-faction PvP. We’ll keep you updated as Bethesda releases additional details.
Every time i played morrowind, oblivion or skyrim i always thought how much cooler it would be to play with someone else. Now i always thought in a coop sense and dont really see how an MMO could work with this IP but im willing to remain hopeful.
This is great news! The ES series was my favorite single player RPG game back when I played single player RPGs. Since I started playing MMOs a couple of years ago, for some reason a single player game can no longer keep my attention for more than a couple of hours. When Skyrim came out I was at Walmart at midnight waiting to purchase my copy, even bought the book because I was so excited. Took it home and played a few hours and got bored. Same with Dragon Age, only ended up playing for a couple of hours.
