For the love of god, no!

Don't ruin TES for me by polluting it with multiplayer!

Is the main Bethesda TES team planning to continue making single-player games? I wouldn't ever willingly trade their single-players for an MMO.

I'm not sure about the engine, I've heard some details about the editor, but nothing related to specific in-game features. As far as I know Bethesda (near Washington D.C.) is off developing other games right now, I'm guessing their designers are coordinating with Zenimax (in Baltimore) on details of the game, or some designers actually shifted to the project. I'm not under NDA so I can share whatever I want, but in doing so I could screw up the jobs of my friends working there so I have to keep things pretty vague. Bottom line, from what I've heard, is that it isn't anything groundbreaking, and sounds like your typical MMORPG fantasy game. Based on what I've heard I'm not all that excited about it, considering how many other MMOs are already out there doing the same thing. I'm not much of an MMO person anyhow, as I work 50-55 hour weeks and have a family, I rarely have time to even get good sleep let alone pay monthly for a game that I'll only get to play a few hours per month.

The good news is that it's been in development for at least 3-4 years, and that didn't seem to affect Skyrim, so I'm assuming this MMO won't affect future Elder Scrolls games.

Sticks & Stones. Choose your weapon.

So, it'll be "The Younger Scrolls"? Or just "The Scrolls"? Hey, maybe that's why they sent their lawyers after Notch... biggrin.gif

I'll have none of this. I seriously hope Bethesda doesn't jump on the MMO bandwagon.

So a scrubbed ME3 ending and now ES MMO. The Mayans had it right

They have been threatening to start developing this monstrosity every since they finished Oblivion, claiming that they had done everything they had wanted to with the Elder Scrolls series and an MMO was the next logical step. When Skyrim was announced, I was over-joyed that perhaps they had decided to kill the MMO idea, since they had previously said that they weren't going to be making anymore single player Elder Scrolls games. Seems as if that joy was premature. I was hoping for the next installment to either take place in Elsweyr or Black Marsh, but now I suppose we'll get an MMO simplified version of both.

LOL. You can't be serious. If Bethesda think that, then they're FOOLS, and that will slowly but surely start sending TES on a downward slope.

The modding community reflects time and time again what TES titles could've/should've been like, there's PLENTY of room for improvement and additional features.

It's only till recently Bethesda started to cut in on that pie with The official HD texture pack, the new kill camera coming in patch 1.5, the Steam Workshop, Just to name a few. Hell, there was even an official video from Bethesda doing a "Game Jam" where everyone on the team make mods for skyrim within a week:


But back to the MMO - big mistake. They shouldn't do it. Total waste of resources. Invest it in things included in the above. That clearly demonstrates what the team can accomplish if left to their own devices.

This! thumb.gif

Have always wished that could have at least a coop in an elder scrolls game.

Being the most powerful being does have a certain temptation to it that I have always enjoyed.

An mmo of the elder scrolls world while very intriguing would be very hard to pull off in a way that doesn't destroy all that the elder scrolls is. But in the end I would have to give in and try it out.
