Todd Howard has explained why there's no Elder Scrolls MMO in development at Bethesda.
Todd Howard, the director working of the upcoming RPG Skyrim, has expllaned why he doesn’t want a Elder Scrolls MMO.
In an interview with Joystiq, Todd responded to the question by simply saying ‘I like this [singleplayer RPGs] better’
He went on to clarify ‘You know, it's what most of us are into. I'm not really an MMO guy. I respect them, I look at them, but I don't play them.'
'It feels more real to me when I'm the hero and it's crafted for that. A community aspect to it, I recognise a lot of people would want that in a game like this, but it changes the flavor for me.’
‘The audience we have for our kind of thing is big enough that we don't have to tone it down. We can just do our thing, and it's kind of grown with each game.'
Skyrim is currently scheduled for release on November 11, 2011 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Check out our Skyrim preview for more information, as well as the trailer below, then let us know your thoughts in the forums.
