More MMO Rumors Surface — Mar 16, 2012
An anonymous source has claimed that Bethesda Softworks is preparing to announce a massively multiplayer online sequel to the Elder Scrolls franchise. The supposed sequel will take place during the Second Era, an area of Elder Scrolls lore not visited since Redguard. Three playable factions will be available, represented by a lion, a dragon, and a bird of prey. Bethesda Softworks and Zenimax Media offered no comment on the situation when asked, though a previous comment that Pete Hines gave to CVG claims that Bethesda has no interest in tacking on a multiplayer feature to a game. With the source claiming the game is to be announced in May 2012, confirmation of this report will have to wait until May rolls around.
