The Elder Scrolls Online – Delayed for Consoles


tesoThe highly anticipated game from Bethesda, The Elder Scrolls has been delayed.  On a blog post from elderscrollsonline, it confirmed what some had speculated as the game will not be finished in time for the originally planned June release.  The post cited several concerns from multiple differences in development between the pc/mac and PS4 and Xbox One, and some issues with each consoles network. They blog also said,

we are still working to solve a series of unique problems specific to those platforms

The delay is expected to last six months, although no new official target date has been released.

They did release a tempting offer to help ease the pain of enduring six more months.  If you buy the pc/mac version before the end of June then they will allow you to transfer your character(s) over to the console version.  They worked out an agreement with Sony and Microsoft to also allow for a $20 digital download of the console version once it is released.

The Elder Scrolls has been one of the most exciting upcoming games for the PS4 and Xbox One and this delay is a bit disheartening, but not totally lost.  The offer to transfer your character(s) for $20, helps to ease the pain.  It makes me really consider purchasing the computer version.

Xbox One/PS4 fans hang in there, hopefully there will be some other epic summer games that will help occupy your time.
