Elder Scrolls MMO in the works

Just about every MMO player has an IP he’d like to see undergo the MMO treatment. For some of us here at Massively, that IP is Bethesda’s long-running Elder Scrolls series. Due to a deep reservoir of lore and the fact that earlier games in the series (notably Morrowind and Daggerfall) were more MMO-like than many modern MMOs, we’d love to see what Bethesda would do with such a beast.

Apparently we’re not the only ones, as SystemLink has posted a bit of speculation on a possible The Elder Scrolls V, highlighting a few job postings as evidence in support of its theory. While we’re not completely sold on the author’s conclusions — mainly due to Bethesda’s plainly articulated stance on the massive genre — we suspect this won’t be the last we hear of an Elder Scrolls MMORPG..

not sure how i feel about this

I enjoyed the past elder scrolls games but i have the feeling that if they made an MMO that would basically mean no more of them for a while

And MMO’s tend to gravitate to a certain path when doing that

if they were to do it i’d rather a SP game with some form a MMO-esque gameplay options

I’m not sure, some things are just better experienced solo, and i think Morrowind and Oblivion were those games. I can’t imagine multiplayer fitting there. Maybe if there was a large change in overall gameplay (like warcraft -> wow), but then maybe i would feel its no longer the same TES… I’m just not seeing it, but i am sort of curious to see what they have come up with, if there even is an MMO.
