The article I found about it is Here, It's all very vague and I would advise fans not to go off the rails with this one. A summary of the article:
- The game would take place a full millennium before The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and likely take place during the “Second Era,” hundred years before any of the other Elder Scrolls games.
- Elder Scrolls Online will have three playable factions
- Expect an announcement in May 2012, more info at E3 possible
- MMO related job postings have been on ZeniMax’s website for quite some time
- Bethesda and Zenimax refused to comment on the above linked article
I tend to remain sceptical when it's 'Anonymous industry sources' handing out the info. Until I see an official statement from Bethesda or Zenimax, I am going to keep this as just a rumour in my head, so I won't be massively disappointed if this doesn't go ahead.
|Would definitely play a stealthy archer class I think. My favourite style of play in Skyrim was this.|
But if anyone can get me back into MMO's it would definitely be Bethesda, they are one of my favourite companies, and it would be interesting to see what they would bring into an MMO. This is definitely something I'm going to be keeping up to date with, and be sure to see more info when I can find it.
