‘Elder Scrolls Online’ PS4 And Xbox One Release Slips To 2015 ‘Skyrim’ Thieving System Inbound
The Elder Scrolls Online was originally slated to release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One alongside the PC this past summer. The console release was then pushed off to an unspecified December 2014 release date. ZeniMax Online made official Thursday what was already known: the MMORPG will not make that release either.
Game Director Matt Firor detailed some of the future updates coming to The Elder Scrolls Online in a post on the game’s website. After covering some of the updates delivered since the PC release, Firor confirmed the delay.
“We couldn’t be more excited about everything there is to look forward to in 2015. We’ll be introducing some of the new systems that we’ve talked about publicly over the last couple of months, and of course, we will be bringing ESO to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One,” he wrote.
“As I’ve mentioned, we have been (and will continue to be) steadily working on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of ESO,” he added later on. “They are playable and fun right now, but there’s still some work to do before we can set an official launch date.”
Bethesda Softworks’ Vice President of PR Pete Hines previously told CVG that the infrastructure of the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE was part of the reason of the original delay to December. This new delay looks to be due to timing. Update 6 is scheduled for January and is “a big one,” according to Firor.
