He stated over the decade of operation, the game has seen around $2 billion in customers spend on the game. While he doesn’t break down these numbers, it still looks to be an outstanding achievement for the developers who have worked hard on the game.

The developers also talked about the game’s success at the event, celebrating the milestones they have achieved with the success of The Elder Scrolls Online. The developers started working on the title in 2007.

It’s great to see a live service game is doing much better, even a decade later, while recent titles like Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League prove that chasing live service game trends doesn’t always end well.

Modern games like Call of Duty have also seen significant criticism as the developers are too accepting of overpriced microtransactions. However, The Elder Scrolls Online has survived for over a decade and is still going strong.

Nonetheless, the game has seen 23 DLC packs released, 42 themed updates, and nine chapter launches over the last decade. The developers deserve great credit for managing the live service game splendidly.
