Chapter 1--add pay to play , Chapter 2-- add pay to play and an additional store as well. Almost forgot Chapter 3--charge full retail price as a stand-a-lone game and then charge extra to play. LOL what a joke. The bigger joke is that there are a bunch of idiots that will pay for it.
It is impossible for this to kill the franchise. This is a fork, not a main release. It's an entirely separate studio.
If this was Elder Scrolls VI: Online, then sure. But it isn't. The Bureau won't kill X-COM, Civ Rev and Civ Online won't kill Civ, and this won't kill Elder Scrolls.
