Yes, I'm hardly surprised. Let's just hope they continue to develop single player games as well, so we don't get another Warcraft scenario where the last single player game came out 8-9 years ago (The Frozen Throne).

Dont think we need to worry about them dropping their singleplayer games unless the mmo turnsout to be hugely successful which does not seem likely.

I hope that by "with the most advanced social features found in any MMO to date" they mean that it has great LFG tools and group content, and not that it will be tweeting 'Joe killed a troll' to friends and post screenshots in Facebook

When you’re creating something this big and complex, writing your own engine makes debugging and new feature creation far easier. Also, our plan is to have ESO run on just about any PC or Mac – laptops included – that have been bought in the last five years.
I assume that's PR talk, because a five year old laptop should not be able to play a state of the art game. Well, unless it was a fantastic piece of hardware five years ago (top notch Alienware or similar).

A lot of people are writing this off as a "WoW clone" or not sufficiently like Elder Scrolls single player games, when we still know very little about it. And it does have some potentially interesting ideas including the action based combat, large 3 faction PvP area, open dungeons, community features etc. It actually appears to share some of the same design ideas with GW2 rather than WoW, which is no bad thing.

I just don't think there is enough information yet to write off this game. If they do all of the above well and put them in a deep story and world, it could be an awesome game. OTOH if it's just trying to ride on the coat tails of Elder Scrolls then it will probably flop.
