The Elder Scrolls Online PS4, Xbox One Versions Officially Delayed to 2015

After remaining quiet about the status of The Elder Scrolls Online on consoles for a few months, Game Director Matt Firor confirmed that it won’t release this year on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Mentioned in his Road Ahead blog post, Firor says the PS4 and Xbox One versions of ESO are being “steadily” worked on right now. Adding how they are “playable and fun” right now, he notes that “there’s still some work to do before we can set an official launch date.”

He elaborated on some of the work they need to do:

First and foremost, we want to make sure that two of our most important systems still in development – the Justice and Champion Systems – are included in the console release. Those two systems will introduce a huge amount of content to the game, and we know everyone is looking forward to the new types of gameplay they provide.

According to Firor, the PS4 and Xbox One versions “are not just ports of the PC/Mac game,” with the PC user interface replaced by a “console-specific UI designed from the ground-up with a controller and a living room play experience in mind.” Additionally, voice chat and full integration with the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live have been added.

No new release window was given for The Elder Scrolls Online on PS4/Xbox One, but Firor said we should expect “lots of news” in early 2015.

Are you disappointed to see The Elder Scrolls Online pushed back again?
