Default ZeniMax - The Elder Scrolls Online Announced

Finally, Zenimax Online Studios has announced The Elder Scrolls Online, due for release in 2013. The official press release is below but before you hit the forums to bemoan the loss of a single-player franchise, remember this is being developed by an entirely different division.
BETHESDA SOFTWORKS ANNOUNCES THE ELDER SCROLLS ONLINE

ZeniMax Online Studios Takes Award-Winning Elder Scrolls Franchise Online In Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game

May 3, 2012 (London, UK) - Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, today announced The Elder Scrolls® Online, an MMO in development at ZeniMax Online Studios. The Elder Scrolls Online will be the first Elder Scrolls game to allow gamers to explore the legendary Elder Scrolls world with others.

The Elder Scrolls Online is being developed for PC and Mac under the leadership of industry veteran Matt Firor, who has spent the last two decades working in online game development. Details about the game are revealed in an exclusive cover story in Game Informer®'s June issue, which ships to subscribers and newsstands this month.

"We have been working hard to create an online world in which players will be able to experience the epic Elder Scrolls universe with their friends, something fans have long said they wanted," said Matt Firor, game director of The Elder Scrolls Online. "It will be extremely rewarding finally to unveil what we have been developing the last several years. The entire team is committed to creating the best MMO ever made - and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise."

Why would it be the death of this franchise? It's being developed by a different studio than the BethSoft that develops the TES series. As long as they don't try to make anything happening in the MMO canon, it would have little to no effect on the single player games.

Usually, when an MMO gets made in a franchise, the single player games gets screwed frm there on out. Kotor and the Ultima games springs to mind.
