In a brief statement from Bethesda Softworks today was announced The Elder Scrolls Online. Let's let that sink in for a minute... The Elder Scrolls... Online.
There isn't a ton of information out yet, but the idea is to make an MMO based on the legendary series, allowing players to explore the universe with others. Heading the project is Matt Frior, who has been working in online game development for two decades.
“We have been working hard to create an online world in which players will be able to experience the epic Elder Scrolls universe with their friends, something fans have long said they wanted,” said Matt Firor, game director of The Elder Scrolls Online. “It will be extremely rewarding finally to unveil what we have been developing the last several years. The entire team is committed to creating the best MMO ever made – and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise.”
