Bethesda has registered the new website address elderscrollsonline.com, suggesting that the MMO project it is working on is based on its hit role-playing series.

However, the destination is a dead-end at the moment, and developer spokesperson Pete Hines has told Gamespot it is just snaffling up URLs to prevent other people getting their first.

Nevertheless, it is one step closer to demystifying the MMO project parent company ZeniMax Media revealed it was working on back in August when it hired ex-Mythic Entertainment front man Matt Frior to take control of its new online team.

Pete Hines was also less chatty when asked what the new MMOG was, and offered only that ZeniMax will not be revealing what it was working on for a very long time.
