The Elder Scrolls Online Dev Working On New Triple-A Game


ZeniMax Online is working on a new triple-A game, as revealed by The Elder Scrolls Online game director Matt Firor in a recent interview about the MMO title.

Firor made no mystery of the fact that the official website of the company has job listings for people to help with the creation of a new engine that will be used as a base for a new triple-A game.

Going by his words, it looks like the work on the game itself is very early so we won’t get the chance to hear about it soon, but the news itself is excellent.

“Yeah. Not a lot of people have picked up on this, but if you look on our job site you’ll see that we are accepting applications for people to work on a new engine for a new triple-A game,” said Firor.

He also added that “we have ideas,” even though from the looks of it they should be more plans than simple ideas.

By the way, the plan for the moment is still to support The Elder Scrolls Online, and it would be crazy to do otherwise since the game has managed to get a good momentum over the last few years after months and months spent in the middle of criticism of long-running TES fans.

“So yes, we have ideas, but we’re committed to ESO for as long as it takes,” he added, and that’s quite obvious since the title is serving a huge userbase and won’t go anywhere, anytime soon.

As for the new title, it could well be a follow up to ESO, but from these words we see the chance for something different, perhaps still in the range of the RPG genre, that could co-exist with that title. What about you?

In the meantime, Bethesda, a label from the same owner, keeps working on The Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield for the longer run.
