Bethesda has sought to hide some info that's apparently come out as a result of the court case with Interplay. According to Duck and Cover:

At this point, we know that Zenimax Media, Bethesda's parent company, opened up an MMO division head by Dark Age of Camelot's Matt Firor and have been working on an unannounced game. What we didn't know was that Bethesda let slip some information in the court case against Interplay, and now they have filed to redact those statements so their competitors can't find out about it.
The big trade secret?: Bethesda has "tens of tens of millions of dollars" and "close to a hundred people" working on a "secret" "World Of Warcraft" type MMO and they don't want their competitors knowing about it. They've been working on it pretty heavily since 2007 after assigning the team in late 2006. According to testimony given by Bethesda, the development timetable for an MMO is 4 years, so that would mean they would be releasing this game next year.​
Of course, every monkey's uncle has known Bethesda has been working on an MMO for a few years already but you can follow the link for some interesting court transcripts.
