The Elder Scrolls Online Stolen Keys Deactivated Today by Bethesda

The Elder Scrolls Skyrim: Special Edition

Bethesda has stated that TESO, now officially known as The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, has recently been purchased fraudulently by a lot of the gamers.

They say that this is not something they are going to allow which is why all the stolen and/ or illegally acquired keys for the game are going to be deactivated today i.e. May 26.

Official forums of the game received a post from Jason Leavey the Community Coordinator for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited where he has clarified what the development studio plans to do:

We want to remind gamers to shop wisely and only purchase online keys from a reputable source. Fraudulently obtained keys obtained via Steam and then re-sold via third-party websites is a violation of both our and Steam’s Terms of Service. We will be deactivating all game accounts created with such stolen keys starting on Tuesday, May 26th. Affected users will receive an email with instructions on how to regain access to their game account via a valid game purchase.

This means that if you had purchased your game key from any of the sources that are not regarded as authorized by the developers, you are probably going to want to buy a new key.

That being said, Leavey has also provided us with a list of all the official retailers that are allowed to sell the game alongside the official website. As far as North America is concerned you can buy the game only from Amazon, Best Buy, Busca Corp, Buy Egames, GameStop and Imperial Games.

If you are playing The Elder Scrolls Online, have you been affected by this decision?
