Elder Scrolls MMOG Revealed?

Duck and Cover describes how Bethesda Softworks has been scrambling to redact court transcripts from their ongoing court battle with Interplay to prevent details on a secret "World of Warcraft type MMO" project from coming to light. In a follow-up, VG247 reports they are "very reliably informed" that this is an Elder Scrolls MMORPG that they say was supposed to be revealed last year, something that has been hinted more than once since Bethesda parent ZeniMax opened an MMOG studio in 2007. Development of this game has apparently been ongoing since late 2006, with "tens of millions of dollars" already invested and a development team of "close to a hundred people."

I've been a fan of their sandboxy ways since nineteen-ninety-whenever Daggerfall came out, but I couldn't be less interested in an ES MMO. Back around the time Morrowind came out I remember one of the guys (maybe Todd Howard) saying that Elder Scrolls would never go multiplayer and that's just not the kind of experience the games are about.

I guess WoW happened after that. If you have a popular series these days your shareholders likely aren't going to be happy until you try to get some monthly fees out of it.

As much as I'm looking forward to TES V, I won't even consider getting this. I wish them luck, but not too much or it might take their focus away from the singleplayer games.
