ES MMO to be Announced in May
According to Tom’s Guide, Bethesda and ZeniMax Studios are poised to announce an Elder Scrolls MMO this May.
The report cites three separate sources, all unnamed, and claims that the game will be set in the Second Era, well before the other games in the Elder Scrolls timeline. One source also claims that there will be three playable factions, represented by “one of three animals: A lion, a dragon, and a bird of prey (either a phoenix or an eagle, we aren’t sure)”.
There’s a lot of credibility to this story despite the unnamed sources. An Elder Scrolls MMO has been widely rumoured since shortly after Oblivion’s release in 2006, and Bethesda and ZeniMax have been openly hiring staff for an MMO previously presumed to be part of the Fallout series.
If this information is accurate, we can expect to see the game at this year’s E3. We’ve reached out to Bethesda for comment – more updates as we get them.
