Exciting. They have always made very very good RPG titles and an MMO is a natural extension and a money spinner for a company like theirs with a good pedigree in the field.

2012 release likely though? If they haven't announced anything yet.

If its 'very similar to World of Warcraft Online' I hope to god it isnt based on fallout!!

More than likely its going to be on the elder scrolls series, will it be able to gain a decent foothold in the market? The fan base is there but WOW seems to have that market almost entirely covered imo

There will be a market for the people like me who feel that WoW has gone too "WTFBBQOWNAGE" and is becoming too easy. I stopped playing when even the greatest noob could own in the game. WoW has no learning curve. It's just Login -> Epics.

Not excited tbh, even though I'm probably the biggest Elderscrolls addict ever - 2000+h of Morrowind gametime.

"...very similar to World of Warcraft Online" most probably mean that there's no first person view and/or there is a leveling system similar to WoW. Both options are unwanted, Bethesda.

A lot of the ground work is already done from previous games, they already have lots of lore and quite a fleshed out world.

However, I'm not sure if I'd want to play an Elder Scrolls MMO. MMORPGs are completely different from normal RPGs. There's much less immersion into the game world and that's one of the main things that made Morrowind amazing IMO.

However, if they were to break away from the normal MMO systems that the majority of them use and go down a sort of EVE Online route of having a completely different gaming system, then that might be pretty interesting.

Must be a ES type MMO. Interplay still owns the FO MMO rights so no go there.

Been too long since an elder scrolls game was released. Lets hope it isn't like Oblivion world. 10 X 10 square of field with trees and copy and paste a few thousand times. A bit more variation would of been nice.

Lore is already there and if it played like morrowind/oblivion with a leveling system, it might actually work. Few changes like add special moves in combat and online PVP could actually work too. Would be better than the auto lock, get in range and spam of WoW's combat system since you would have to work in each battle.

Would rather it be like Oblivion instead of Fallout 3, although I liked them both, I prefered Oblivion.

Sounds like you do not like the genre at all, that is fine. Enjoy the other 40% of the PC Games market, since 60% of it is going to be mmo, semi-mmo or episodic by 2012.

I hate MMOs, because they cost alot and I'm not really interested in a 3D version of msn messenger that games like WoW have become. This news would probably mean no new single player RPG for the Elder Scrolls, or a long delay, so thumbs down from me, as I'd rather have that.

They will probably insist in TES engine. I hope they stick to TES MMO rather than Fallout. I still hope that interplay can make the FO MMO. Bethesda, imo, is not capable of making a good MMO. It's just like GURPS and D&D. They have the potential, but they lack the creativity.

They have the mechanics but not the "human side".

The humans side in those games is provided by the humans, not everything has to be written down in the rulebooks

@ Veles:
That's exactly what I am talking about. But looks like you got the opposite way. They make EVERYTHING by the rulebook. They lack sense of humor and maturity. That's why their games are so plastic-like

I doubt it will be TES style...

I would like to see a true Fallout MMO with rivaling factions and post-apocalyptic united states... would be nice, but then my idea for having 90%+ of interaction in such a game is rather pipe-dream..
However, as with any MMO, I'd probably end up playing it and calling it crap. Most MMO's baby-sit you and don't have any real risk values involved.
