Well, the format and style is just about right for an MMO, wouldn't you say?
A reader has pointed us in the direction of Tom's Guide , where an inside "industry source" claims that a massively multiplayer online title in The Elder Scrolls universe is in the works at Zenimax Online Studios. Evidently, Bethesda is set to officially announce the game in May.
The title should be simply "Elder Scrolls Online" and it'll actually be set a full millennium before the events that transpire in Skyrim . That means this MMO would be a prequel to any standalone Elder Scrolls up to this point, which ought to be interesting if true. The source also said there'd be three playable factions in the upcoming MMORPG, represented by a lion, dragon, and some unspecified bird of prey. Lastly, the game might show up at E3 this year, so we'll have to keep a close eye on that; it could make quite the splash.
No word on release date or targeted platforms; this could very well be a PC exclusive, but who knows?
