DevelopmentEdit

On December 6, 2012, when asked how big Morrowind would be compared to The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, ZeniMax replied that the game would take place on the mainland areas of Deshaan, Stonefalls, and Bal Foyen, close to the size of Vvardenfell. Zenimax teased "That's not to say adventurers in The Elder Scrolls Online won't ever be able to visit Vvardenfell."[5] During the beta, the map of Tamriel displayed Vvardenfell as a future zone.[6] During the September 10, 2014 Writer's AmA, Lawrence Schick said that Vivec and Sotha Sil are "very busy and have their hands full", and will be eventually revealed what it is they are busy with, as Zenimax has big plans. This alluded to what Vivec is occupied with during the main questline of the chapter, as well as his city on Vvardenfell.[7]

After Public Test Server patch 2.4.0 added the Dark Brotherhood DLC,[8] 14 locations found on Vvardenfell in Morrowind were added to the data files, located in many areas around the island's coast.[9][10] After patch 2.5.0 containing the Shadows of the Hist DLC was released, 60 new locations from Vvardenfell were found to be added to the data files, confirming each zone besides Red Mountain, Sheogorad, and the Ashlands.[11] In the PTS 2.7.0 Homestead patch,[12] a large overhead map of Vvardenfell was found,[13][14][15] which showed most of the pre-existing locations already added to the files, as well as a few new ones. Only Sheogorad and part of the northern Ashlands were not completed zones.[13]

Beginning on January 29th, 2017, official ESO social media accounts began teasing the announcement of Morrowind, changing their profiles to volcanic rock that was gradually opening to let out more lava, as well as the phrase "Discover the Next Chapter" with a Twitch stream time and date.[16][17] On January 31st, 2017 at 2:00 PM EST, the stream began, showing a CGI trailer for the new chapter, which concluded with the official announcement of Morrowind, set to be released on June 6th, 2017. The trailer was followed by an interview with Rich Lambert and Pete Hines, discussing what was coming with the chapter.[2][18]
