Elder Scrolls Online To Miss Planned Console Release

The Elder Scrolls Online was released in April of 2014 for PC, with a PS4 and Xbox One version planned to release three months later. That release date was pushed to December 2014, and it seems it has been pushed yet again as Bethesda and Zenimax have announced that the console versions of Elder Scrolls Online will not be ready untill 2015.

In a post on the game’s blog, Game Director Matt Firor commented on the console version’s status saying:

As I’ve mentioned, we have been (and will continue to be) steadily working on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of ESO. They are playable and fun right now, but there’s still some work to do before we can set an official launch date.

Firor was quick to mention that the PS4 and Xbox One versions were not a straight port of the game however, and that they were currently building a new UI system exclusive for these versions of the game.

In other Elder Scrolls News, the team confirmed that its next update for the game will be coming in January and will bring the much requested Justice system into the game. This will allow players to pickpocket and steal from NPC characters, while facing the consequences of their actions if caught. This update and its features plan to be included in the console version of Elder Scrolls Online when it finally launches.
