The Elder Scrolls Online Facing 6 Months Delay on Consoles?

By   /   May 8, 2014

The Elder Scrolls Online has been plagued by a number of issues since its release on PC and the experience is becoming quite frustrating for the players.

Now, according to a FAQ on the official page of the Zenimax, the game will be delayed for six months on the consoles, so that the problems faced by the players are fixed.

The FAQ, which has been removed from the official page stated:

The Elder Scrolls Online officially launched on April 4, 2014 on PC and Mac,” reads the statement regarding Bethesda’s new MMO.

While it has become clear that our planned June release of the console versions isn’t going to be possible, we have made great progress, we have concluded that we’ll need about six more months to ensure we deliver the experience our fans expect and deserve.

Moreover, one of the users of Reddit is reporting that Bethesda is taking serious actions against the people who are linking the post of the delay on the forum.

The link to the FAQ has been removed but a user managed to capture the image right before it was taken offline. Earlier, it was planned that The Elder Scrolls Online will make its way to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in June.

It wouldn’t be such a bad idea to delay the game at this moment due to alarming number of exploits and bugs that are being faced by the players. A broken game on the console will not do any good for the developers.

However, until an official word of this news is given by Bethesda, it should just be taken as a rumor.
