Any time spent on this game isn't time spent making a new Elder Scrolls, which could put Skyrim to shame.

 

Anybody else agree?  Man hours used in the Elder Scrolls Online should have been made for a real Elder Scrolls game, then they could tac on multiplayer afterwards.

/sigh

It is being made by zenimax online, not bethesda game studios.

Yeah, 2 different teams, so that's not an issue. And it's Fallout's turn anyway.

I'm personally hoping for a new Fallout game.

Ill up the ante on that one. I want a new fallout game that is debugged, tested, optimized, and trouble shot by competant people that know what the hell they are doing.

You're asking the impossible, I'm afraid. You know that's not how Bethesda operates.

The man-hours spent should have been spent feeding the poor, or developing viable bio-plastics, or...anything but this.

Absolutely no chance of my paying even a one-time penny for this shite, let alone a monthly tithe..

Sad but true.

Bethesda figures why do beta testing when the consumer can do it for you.

Yeah, those features do not come standard. It would make great DLC, though.

I know what you mean, but it sounds like they involve different teams. Honestly, I wish them all the success with ESO. I am not a mmorpg type of guy, but I know a lot of people like that genre.

That being said, another ES title will come just be patient. In the meantime, I hope the next Fallout game comes out in the next couple of years.

No, because it's not being made by the same people. Just like Fallout New Vegas wasn't. They are all by bethsoft, but Elder Scrolls Online is developed by ZeniMax Online Studios. Oblivion/Skyrim/Fallout 3 are by Bethesda Game Studios. They work for the same company, but they are separate groups.

#14 Posted by ShangTsung7 (250 posts) -

what do you expect? its a side project with the only purpose being to bring an ES game online, the smart decision would have been to place the whole thing online via website, like World of Warcraft or something, hell the same devs didn't even develop it, which is a good thing imo cause it means bethesda might not be jumping on the online mp bandwagon after all and we may indeed still get a sp sequel to Skyrim in the future. ;)

Not at all. I have plenty of friends and know plenty of folk that are ecstatic about an MMO that is completely Elder Scrolls.

Stop being so cynical about a game that hasn't even been released.

I played the beta and loved it. Try it out first

@demi0227_basic: It feels like a shitty Elder Scrolls.

I thought ESO was developed by a different studio.

#19 Posted by yngsten (256 posts) -

Bethesda Game Studios, Bethesda Softworks, Id Software and Zenimax Online are different branches of Zenimax Inc.

So for the millionth time, NO. Todd and Pete will do their thing unaffected by TESO.

Elder Scrolls online only sucks if you hated Skyrim with a vengenace also

Because its almost 100% identical and it makes a lot more sense to have Skyrim as a mmo instead of a shitty single player game.

The Elder Scrolls Online is being made by a completely different company, they have just paid the rights to use the name and the design from Bethesda, Bethesda pretty much absolutely no involvement what so ever, they are busy working on a new game, It hasn't been that long since Skyrim came out for a big open world game to come out like that yet,

But don't worry E3 is probably where your going to see an announcement.

Aswel ESO was never going to be coming to consoles until Sony begged them to.

One Bethesda Games Studios in not working on Elder Scrolls Online and Bethseda is focused on Fallout 4 ATM
