Remember sitting down and playing Skyrim and thinking that there was only two ways it could be improved? I did and those two places where there was room for improvement were to make the already enormous world even bigger and to let me play with my friends, well today the announcement was made that Bethesda and ZeniMax have been working hard on a brand new MMO set in The Elder Scrolls world.
Details are pretty scarce at the moment, but from Bethesda’s press release earlier today we do know that the game has been in development for both PC and Mac for a few years now and that Matt Frior is leading the charge to make the game a reality. Matt has been head of ZeniMax Online Studios since 2007 and has well over 20 years experience working in online games so the project looks as though it is definitely in safe hands.
Following in the footsteps of Halo 4, the RPG giants intend to release more information in next months Game Informer magazine, with The Elder Scrolls Online as the cover story. Following this information will be released regularly to keep fans up to speed with what is going on behind the scenes. For now though we just have to hang on a little longer before the floodgates are thrown open and we start to see more of what could be the single greatest, most in depth gaming experience we have ever seen.
While nothing is concrete just yet, big rumours have already began claiming the game will be released in 2013, stay tuned and we’ll let you know as soon as anymore details come to light.
