Gamesindustry interviewed Studio Head, Matt Firor, about a myriad of topics regarding The Elder Scrolls Online. It’s an interview that covers a lot surface topics, ranging from consolization to lessons learned from previous games.
Q: What have you learned from past experiences, like Mythic, and what are your key takeaways with your current project at Elder Scrolls Online?
Matt Firor: I think it all goes back to if you concentrate on all the peripheral stuff, you miss the whole picture. You have to concentrate on the whole game first and make it a fun game. In our terms, that means making a fun role playing game in the Elder Scrolls universe. If you don’t do that and you worry about all the other stuff, then things go off the rails pretty quickly. I’ve learned that I need to focus on the things that matter. For example, answering your question on platforms, on consoles… we’re focusing on what we’re doing now. If we don’t do that, then we won’t go anywhere.
