Elder Scrolls Online delayed for next-gen consoles, incentive revealed
The Elder Scrolls Online has been out on both PC and Mac for a while now, and everyone was waiting for its release on next-gen consoles. Sadly, this won’t be happening anytime soon, as the game has been delayed for another six months.
“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. 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.
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.” a Bethesda spokesperson said to VG247.
They have also revealed an important incentive for everyone that currently owns the PC/Mac version of the game. For only $20, you can upgrade your copy to a digital version of ESO on either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. The best thing is that you actually get to keep all your progress, as your characters will be transferred over.
You’ll also get another 30 days of game time included in that price. Will this be enough for fans to wait another six months?
