UPDATE 3.55pm: Details and video of The Elder Scrolls Travels: Oblivion have only been online a short while but Bethesda parent company Zenimax has already lawyered up and pulled down the footage.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will hark back to Morrowind and the "wonder of discovery" - something Bethesda wittingly "sacrificed" for Oblivion.
Bethesda is working on a "World of Warcraft type MMO", according to legal papers submitted in a court case between the company and Interplay.
Bethesda has hinted that the next instalment in the tip-top Elder Scrolls series won't be released until 2010.
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion will be a PlayStation 3 launch title in both North America this November and Europe next March.
Developer/publisher Bethesda Softworks confirmed the long-standing rumour this week, and will publish the game itself in the US while Ubisoft serves as co-publisher in Europe.
The company also revealed that a PSP instalment, The Elder Scrolls Travels: Oblivion, is in development and should be released in the US and Europe next spring.
