Elder Scrolls Online’ PS4 and Xbox One Release Pushed to 2015

By   /   Dec 5, 2014

Speculated to release by the end of the year, The Elder Scrolls Online has been officially confirmed to be pushed into 2015 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

“As I’ve mentioned, we have been (and will continue to be) steadily working on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of ESO,” said director Matt Firor in a blog post.

“They are playable and fun right now, but there’s still some work to do before we can set an official launch date.”

Previously Bethesda had mentioned at occasions that while they will be pushing for a late 2014 release, they cannot guarantee it based on the work required. In the blog post, Firor stress that the current-gen console versions “are not just ports” of the existing PC version.

A lot of changes and additions have been brought in and all of this requires extensive testing and time to ensure players get a solid and smooth experience at launch. Not to mention it’s almost a tradition with online titles to mess up its online capabilities at launch.

It’s actually good that Elder Scrolls Online is taking its time.

“We have completely replaced the PC user interface with a console-specific UI designed from the ground-up with a controller and a living room play experience in mind,” Firor said. “We’ve also added voice chat and full integration with XBL and PSN. Expect to see lots of news about our console versions in early 2015.”

The PC version was released in April. As for the console version, there’s still no solid information to mark it for an early 2015 release.
