Hey let's use an engine thats incapable of rendering more than a hundred people in one zone without colossal problems and requires multiple instances of the same area to be running for our MMO!

What's funny is in the Gameinformer article they say there will be 100vs100 pvp combat.

That will come back to haunt them if that isn't possible.

"But you said!!" and all that. With their announcement article blowing up in their face.

Hero Engine is automatic failure.

You'd think they have enough money to write their own code rather than using an off-the-shelf toolbox kit.

Then they would have to spend time on a SP engine that isn't the abysmal gamebryo.

How to make MMOs:
Get 300m dollar for your game
Buy Hero Engine
Let it look and play like WoW
Spend 700m on a marketing campaign
Blame the internet that they troll your game and this is the only reason nobody wants to play your new MMO.
?????
Repeat until developers die.

Why can't they just modify the creation engine for this game?

I approve this message.

Creation Engine is just a modified Gamebryo. That's why it's listed here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamebryo

Gamebryo engine is used in other MMOs such as Warhammer Online and Rift. As well as Dark Age of Camelot which is what the lead designer/director Matt Firor (whatever he is) of ESO came from.

Instead they chose the Hero Engine.

I was somewhat interested in this game. Before I read they were using the Hero Engine. I mean, what are they thinking?

TORtanic 2.0?

It's an Elder Scrolls game. Not even God could make this game fail.
