I can't help feeling that this game is heading for disaster. They have a strong IP, but how many people will be repelled when they realise it's not actually Elder Scrolls 6 but a fairly typical MMO? They've been avoiding showing the MMO-like stuff in videos so far, instead pretending it plays just like an Elder Scrolls game, and I think a lot of people will be surprised.

Then to use the outdated model of subscriptions, knowing how many other games have switched for F2P to survive, AND then adding the extra complexity of developing for multiple platforms ... They've got their work cut out for them.

This. Not only that, but how many people actually realise (or even care) that its not MADE by Bethesda inhouse, but is merely published by them. Its a pure cash grab, after the success of Skyrim they feel that their IP has enough clout to warrant an MMO. I dont understand why they cant see its a terrible step to take, especially after the Bioware/EA SWOTOR fiasco.
