Elder Scrolls MMO May Be On The Horizon [Rumor]

According to an “industry source”, Tom’s Guide revealed that in May 2012 Bethesda will announce a new MMO set in the Elder Scrolls world, and will be titled Elder Scrolls Online. It’s set to take place during what the Elder Scrolls games refer to as the “Second Era”.

Three factions will be playable, with each one represented by an animal. Though names are not known, the animals used to represent them are the lion, the dragon, and a bird of prey. It’s unknown if each faction will have multiple playable races, and if some of those races can be used in multiple factions.

It would be pretty interesting to see an Elder Scrolls MMO, I will say. With such a colorful backstory established in the in-game books alone, Bethesda could have tons of material to pull from when it comes to creating different quests and story-arcs. It’s been known that Bethesda has been looking for people to work on an MMO as these job postings will show, so it’s not a stretch to see them go after the Elder Scrolls in this manner.
