Bethesda Softworks, creators of the famed Elder Scrolls series of RPG games, has been playing its card close to its chest and not revealing anything about a future Elder Scrolls MMO.
Speculation has recently emerged over Bethesdas first MMO title taking place under the Elder Scrolls banner and the reason beind this is the registration of elderscrollsonline.com to ZeniMax Media, Bethesdas parent company.
Pete Hines, an executive VP from Bethesda quickly pointed out that ZeniMax Online had recently been set up to deal with MMO titles but wasn't about to reveal anything of interest to CVG.
We have a separate company, ZeniMax Online Studios, that's owned by our parent company, which has been set up to do MMOs but they aren't talking about what projects they're working on or what they're doing.
When asked about the possibility of an Elder Scrolls MMO, Hine didn't say no but he didn't say yes either, chosing to shroud the entire possibility in complex wordings.
It's [ZeniMax Online Studios] obviously a new shop, a new startup, and given that it's an MMO, I imagine it'll be quite a while before they start to talk about what they're doing.
