Like everyone who viewed the trailer for Bethesda’s Skyrim we were left with a huge assortment of questions and mine happened to be focused around multiplayer.
Luckily I contacted some people in charge of their PR and they had this to say to my question regarding if this would be the MMO that has been in development since around 2006:
“It is not an MMO. We have an MMO studio, ZeniMax Online, but they have not announced what they are working on. Just rumors and speculation.
I had to ask because I remember a $300 million dollar investment that was made for an MMO for the NEXT next-gen Xbox 360 that was rumored to be an Oblivion MMO adaptation and since there has been almost no news on it.
Now knowing that this is not going to be that game although it would have had 5 years in development speculation can focus in a little more. I personally hope for a 2-4 player co-op story seeing as the world of Elder Scrolls is massive and unlike RPG’s like Mass Effect/Dragon Age Bethesda offers a huge free world that can easily allow a group of friends to join together and move through a story together. Mostly because I think it would be fun to have a warrior,mage, and archer group doing quests,missions, and exploring.
Hopefully another one of my hopes won’t be crushed.
