July 18, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

If you’ve been looking forward to The Elder Scrolls Online ever since it was first announced by Bethesda earlier this year but don’t have a gaming PC to run it, there is still hope, as developer Zenimax Online hasn’t ruled out a console version.

Speaking to GamesIndustry, studio head Matt Firor explained that they haven’t moved forward on a console version for the time being because the next generation of consoles is fast approaching. Only when the time is right will they look into doing something beyond the PC version.

There are a lot of rumors swirling around the next-gen coming back together with PCs. It seems like things are going back to a more standard platform. That being said, we haven’t thought about it heavily right now. The worst thing you can do is worry about new platforms while in development.

We want to do what we’re doing right now and then look around for further opportunities. Certainly we’re open to new opportunities, and we’re going to be looking into new territories beyond North America and Europe.

Would you be interested in a console port of The Elder Scrolls Online, or is it better suited on the PC exclusively? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments below.
