Absolutely! If they sold it like a regularly-priced game, and didn't charge to keep playing it, like with Guild Wars and its upcoming sequel, I'd be interested. Put a subscription fee on it and I'm out. It doesn't look nearly interesting enough to have me pay more than a day-one single-player price for it.

And seriously, with no subscription fees? You'd get your entire Elder Scrolls fanbase to jump at that. If they like it, let them do cosmetic microtransactions for hats n' stuff. That'll keep it around, and keep it making a bit of cash. But alas... probably not.

Probably because it will have the same exact combat system as every MMO ever and it has the exact same cartoon aesthetic of every MMO ever.

And it will probably just be another WoW clone.

Generally there is nothing appealing about it.

Depends on what they expect. Solo focused mmos are only fun until you get to the end.
