Truth is, this game is exactly like SWTOR at the beginning. It could either succeed spectacularly or fail spectacularly, there won't be a middle ground for this game, this one will either become a massive game and a massive success or put SWTOR to shame if it fails. And like SWTOR a lot is riding on this one, Bethesda will either become a lot more richer or suffer a financial hole they may not recover from. Already there are reports of $300M being invested in this game but Bethesda is no EA when it comes to financial power.

Whatever happens, it should be a fun ride watching the developments of this game.

I seriously doubt Bethesda is putting that much money into it. For one, they don't have to buy a hideously expensive license like EA had to do with ToR, and second they are not going the whole "let's voice everything" route.

Bethesda also seems more sane than EA is where marketing is concerned, budget wise. I have no doubt TESO is expensive, but it's not going to be anywhere near TOR expensive.

Maybe not $300M directly invested into the game but this game is already moving that amount of money around. Source
