ZeniMax Online, the recently established online wing of Bethesda parent company ZeniMax Media, announced today it has licensed Simutronics’ HeroEngine for use in its upcoming MMO. The HeroEngine is a 3D engine and server technology platform originally developed for use in Simutronics’ MMORPG Hero’s Journey. BioWare licensed the engine in 2006 for use in its own MMO collaboration with LucasArts.
No details of the game have been released yet, although an Elder Scrolls MMORPG is the front runner, and why not it’s arguably the best RPG series of all time. ZeniMax secured $300 million in development funding earlier this month.
