Phil Spencer Says Avowed and Elder Scrolls are Very Different

I understand what Phil is saying. Avowed is not a carbon copy of Elder Scrolls. There will be some distinct differences. That being said I think having an ambitious new IP being compared to one of the greatest RPGS of all time is not a bad thing. And from a marketing perspective you don't want to make it seem like they have nothing in common. A lot of people will just read the quote and say oh okay so its not elder scrolls and perhaps instead of being curious they may instead just kind of lose interest and forget about it until it releases and the reviews drop.

If all the team has done is release one trailer and people start hyping up Avowed with the likes of Skyrim that is a very, very, very good thing. I say just ride the wave and see where it takes you.

Obsidian Entertainment has already proven that they have the talent to make an interesting open world RPG. Now that they have a AAA budget give the team a chance to live up to the hype.
