$200 Million for a Generic Looking MMO

Gee...Wonder why these Companies go bankrupt....

@Peterlocke

your question is as good as mine.

And why do investors give them so much money?

The Star Wars MMO costed over $300 million to make and look at it now. It's sad too because if they had initially made that MMO F2P it would be heavily played and popular today. Which is what Bioware originally wanted to do. Rather than learning from their mistakes Bethesda is following in their doomed footsteps.

Throwing a ton of money behind an IP doesn't guarantee success by any stretch of the imagination, it just means that when it fails it will be well known.

They think it will do well because it's elders scrolls. I was in the beta and I told them flat out the game is fucking boring the single player games are waaaay better than that crap.

$200 million on this is a huge risk.

So... that explains the subscription fee... maybe they just want to go all out.

Cant wait to try this game. I hope it will live up to all the expectations and hopes mmorpg hungry gamers have.

F2P is cancer for games, so I hope it will never come to Elder Scrolls Online. It it do, it just means it has failed..

Game is destined for failure, hardly any of the Elder Scrolls fans wanted this and it's not going to take players away from other more popular MMO's. On top of that it now has a 15 dollar a month payment if what I've read is correct, which will have put off anyone who was on the fence about getting the game completely off.
If they wanted to add multiplayer to the Elder Scrolls then it should have been 3 or 4 player drop in drop out co-op, nothing more.
