The Elder Scrolls: Legends: No current plans to release on Xbox One, PS4 or Switch


Even if the Switch can be a handheld, it's not yet on the cards.

The Elder Scrolls: Legends was today released globally on PC — and has a staggered release on iPad, Android and Mac —  but don’t expect the title head to Xbox One, PS4 or even the handheld Switch.

Scott Martins, President of developer Dire Wolf Digital, told Stevivor there are no current plans for a console release of the card-based game.

“We ultimately want players to be playing the game whenever and however they like,” Martins said when asked of Xbox One or PS4 releases.

“With this in mind, we’ll be launching worldwide on iPad on the 23 of March, worldwide on Android tablets in April, on Mac OS this Spring, and on both Android phones and iPhones this Summer – more information, including the launch date, will be revealed at E3 in June.”

Martins would not confirm if The Elder Scrolls: Legends was built, like Bethesda’s Fallout Shelter, to be compatible with the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), providing for easy transition from Windows PC to Xbox One.

While Martins said the Nintendo Switch was “exciting”, he wouldn’t commit to a release.

“Right now we’re fully focused on making the PC, Mac, tablet and phone versions as great as they can be,” he said.
