Rumours of an Elder Scrolls MMO have taken a fresh turn following the licensing of MMO tech HeroEngine by Bethesda sister company ZeniMax Online Studios. ZeniMax Online has been set up to focus purely on development in the massively multilayer online arena. HeroEngine has also been licensed by BioWare for its still top secret MMO, which rumours have said is set in the world of KOTOR.
What's HeroEngine? Creator SimuTronics explains, "HeroEngine is an MMO development team's dream come true - it streamlines the entire process of building your MMO game. Artists, world builders, scripters, game designers, producers, and customer service can all collaborate live, online, in real-time. Create and update your game faster, with more time to focus on the fun rather than waiting for code to crunch. Build the game and play it at the same time to see instant results."
Bethesda of course still has yet to confirm any MMO games, but recently the company's registration of elderscrollsonline.com kicked off loads of speculation.
