Elder Scrolls: The MMO?

Bethesda's parent company establishes new MMO-focussed studio. Let speculation commence!

Could the Elder Scrolls RPG series be heading to the world of the MMO?

Well, that's what we're speculating following the announcement that the parent company of Bethesda Softworks has established a new studio focussed on creating MMos.

ZeniMax Online Studios is headed up by Matt Firor, formerly at Dark Age of Camelot developer Mythic Entertainment (or EA Mythic as it's now known).

Currently there are no concrete details on any projects planned by ZeniMax Online. All we have to go on is mention of "an innovative and high-profile next generation MMO" in the descriptions for job positions with the new studio.

But MMO is an obvious avenue for the Elder Scrolls series to explore.

Firor has said that ZeniMax has given him "the chance to make great online games in an environment that I feel comfortable in".
