I covered the above topics on my recent YouTube video, give it a look, also included are release dates for my viewers that do not know the complete details.

Forbes = ESO biggest failure? I disagree to a certain extent.

 

Emperors Armor = Looks amazing. Like I said in my video, I will never wear this armor.... but still cool nonetheless.

    After playing almost 2 decades of MMORPGs and seeing how much they have come to suck in this day and age, if this game fails me I will probably give up for good. It's all been the same crap since WoW and all of them have fallen hard trying to copy it instead of being innovative like the originals.

    I'm truly concerned as to its fate.... I really hope it works out, but they are DEEP into debt already - if people start cancelling subscriptions it will be a quick fate. I hope it works out.... they are banking on a big console following, which never happens with MMO's... Age of Conan ring a bell? :(

    Final Fantasy 11 did great on consoles and 14 is doing great now on PS3, bout to be released on PS4 as well in the near future.  And Zenimax got bethesdas support too and that Elder Scrolls is a very popular IP on consoles unlike Conan IP.   Funcom was just lost throughout the entire development of AoC and didnt have anywhere near as much funding as Zenimax which is about over 200 million

    How do you know they are "deep into debt"? I highly doubt a corporation would put all its money and future on one horse, especially considering the other studios and succesfull games thye have under them.

    I don't think they are deep in debt either.

    Posted these things in that other thread for Forbes when I was comparing SWTOR to ESO.

    Anything else?

    Our project is fully funded from now until launch, which is a luxury unheard of in the gaming industry. With our corporate structure, we're very stable and can concentrate on making games instead of raising money.


    How are you paying for this?

    ZeniMax Media recently announced a $300 million investment from Providence Equity Partners, and of course the massive success of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3 only adds to the assets that helped fund ZeniMax Online. Suffice it to say, we're covered.

    Too bad they aren't looking for a Web Developer, I'd work for them lol
