It’s heart-breaking, Oblivion fans, but Bethesda’s Todd Howard has gone on record to say that we shouldn’t expect Elder Scrolls V anytime soon. Speaking at QuakeCon 2009, Howard tried to sooth the anguished gamers by joking that “there’s always a chance” for an Elder Scrolls MMO. The next day, Bethesda’s holding company, Zenimax Media, started registering a whole bunch of domains like ElderScrollsOnline.com, ElderScrollsMMO.com and TheElderScrollsMMOG.net – suspicious.
Considering how just about every big publisher wouldn’t mind getting their own World of Warcraft-style cash-cow, the likelihood of Elder Scrolls V taking a back-seat for a money-making MMO is high. What do you think about it?
