Default Elder Scrolls MMO to be announced in May?

http://www.tomsguide.com/us/ZeniMax-...ews-14481.html

Take with a certain amount of salt. Dont see it happening myself, not this soon after the release of Skyrim at least, but fuck do I know, it would probably sell like peanut butter, so I guess its possible.

announced, and released are two different things my friend.

I could totally see them announcing an MMO, in may, then taking the 3-4 years to make the thing to flush out skyrim, just as people finally get bored of skyrim, boom, mmo hits.

the problems with it will be simple, most people like TES for the easy to mod game, which wont be there in the MMO, so im not sure how well it will do.

WIPS: CHECK THEM OUT!

the key to every good DE army makeup. Always have a backup plan, try to take everything in multiples, and use everything you can to your advantage, being a sneaky bastard within the rules, as it were.

Unlikely, I think. The rights for that Fallout MMO look more promising, however, as they had to fight for that. Regardless, another project this soon is highly unlikely, especially considering the post-release support they've had for Skyrim that is likely sucking up some development time.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

Well, I like classless systems, so maybe it turns to be good, if they plan it at all. Just hope they 'll retain skill system which requires you to use skills to improve, not standard xp system that most themeparks have. They just need to find some way to stop exploitable ways to raise skills. And if it turns to be sandbox, with all out pvp with consequences, that would be even more great.

I'd be sad if this happened.

Already seen KOTOR3 developed as an MMO, TES6 would break my heart.

Co-op is great and all, but sometimes i just want to enjoy my games in peace.

God, I can't even imagine the amount of bugs that would be in an Elder Scrolls MMO.

I'd be surprised if it actually ran on any platform.

Yeah, they're bad enough with a regular single-player game, imagine how bad multiplayer would be. Hell, they have like, zero experience with multiplayer anyways. XD

Here it is. We don't know much, but it might be great. 3 factions, public dungeons, open world pvp.
