IN A NUTSHELL:
- The devs of the first installment of The Elder Scrolls develop a new RPG with a huge open world;
- The game is based on the premise similar to TES: Daggerfall and TES: Arena.
One of the devs of the first two installments of the RPG series The Elder Scrolls - Ted Peterson - is working on a title which will be a "spiritual heir" to those games. It will be called The Wayward Realms. Several other experienced Bethesda developers - Julian LeFay and Vijay Lakshman - are also involved in its development. The information appeared in an interview conducted with Ted Peterson by youtuber ESO.
It is worth noting that the discussed developer created, among others, a large part of the so-called lore of the first installments of The Elder Scrolls. He was also involved in the creation of the daedric prince Sheogorath (interestingly, the name of this deity is said to be a reference to developer's full name - Theodore Peterson).
The Wayward Realms is based on the same premise on which The Elder Scrolls: Arena and The Elder Scrolls: Daggerfall were based, but with the use of modern technology and quality of life improvements. We will get a huge world to explore, which will consist of hundreds of islands (one of the key features is to be a "realistic scope" of the game environment - the devs call their work a Grand RPG). The universe is to be full of different factions interacting with each other in various ways. An important role will be played by choices made by the player and their consequences.
