Well, to be fair, it isn’t Bethesda developing it. Its being done by some other company that ZeniMax owns, or partners with or something.
I find it funny that Michael Kirkbride was totally shut down when he wanted to work on this. I mean, I didn’t think they’d let him in the first place, but his reaction was totally chill. There’s a bunch of people from the Elder Scrolls lore forum that have been talking about somehow getting an Elk erected in the Imperial City. MK’s name on the forums there is Merry Eyesore the Elk (for reference).
