Bethesda is looking to develop their own MMORPG based on the widely popular Elder Scrolls series.
According to an industry source, ZeniMax Online Studios and Bethesda will officially announce the title in May 2012. Setting wise, the title will be rumored to take place a millennium before The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
As of now, the only gameplay details to be known is that players will choose between three fractions, each being represented by an animal (lion, dragon, and bird of prey).
The title is planned to make an appearance at E3 as well as Quakecon 2012 in August after the May announcement.
So far, ZeniMax Online Studios and Bethesda have given no comment concerning the matter. Keep in mind that the companies were also planning on developing a MMO based on Fallout, which was rumored to have fell through. Either way, there’s some kind of MMO in the works, but time will only tell.
