After reading over the article in the scans, I'm much less interested than before. The frequent mentions of WoW-like gameplay mechanics and lack of any substantial sandbox elements are a big turnoff. There will be no player housing (it's "too hard" to implement they say - even though somehow past MMOs have done it reasonably well (UO, SWG, Everquest II). I had thought with the Elder Scrolls franchise they could have made the ultimate fantasy sandbox MMO, but it seems they are chasing the standard WoW demographic too much for that.

It might be fun for what it is, and to explore for some of the lore aspects but I was hoping for something very different. I have nothing against WoW-like games per se but we have so many of those now, do we really need another?

Anyway, I don't think the single-player ES games will disappear - because apparently this game in no way replaces that experience.
