The Elder Scrolls Online delayed by six months on PS4, Xbox One

Bethesda today confirmed they’re delaying the Xbox One and PS4 versions of The Elder Scrolls Online.

The delay will be “about six months”, meaning we can expect the console versions of the MMO by Christmas time.

“​We continue to work on the console versions of ESO, and game development has been progressing steadily, but we are still working to solve a series of unique problems specific to those platforms,” Bethesda said.

“Integrating our systems with each console manufacturer’s networks — which are both different from the PC/Mac system as well as different from each other-has been a challenging process,” they continued. “It has become clear that our planned June release of the console versions isn’t going to be possible. Though we have made great progress, we have concluded that we’ll need about six months to ensure we deliver the experience our fans expect and deserve.”

As means of apology, Bethesda will be offering PC and Mac ESO owners a chance to buy a $20 USD digital version of the game on PS4 or Xbox One upon its release. The offer is only valid for those that buy ESO on PC or Mac before the end of June.
