Elder Scrolls Online delayed on consoles until 2015

Zenimax Online Studios has announced that The Elder Scrolls Online will miss its late 2014 release date on PS4 and Xbox One.

The game had initially been due out on next-gen consoles in June but in May ZOS said the game would be pushed back by about six months”, adding that: It has become clear that our planned June release of the console versions isn’t going to be possible.”

However, the release date has been changed for a second time with the game now pencilled in simply for 2015.

2014 has been a very busy year for us at ZOS,” the studio said. We launched ESO on PC and Mac and immediately started addressing any issues that cropped up, going on to release five huge updates that introduced new content, new systems, tweaks and fixes to existing systems, and tons more.

With everything we’ve done, we firmly believe that ESO is a much better, more stable, and more fun game than it was six months ago. This is the way online games like this work: the game you launch is a starting point that inevitably evolves over time. I am very happy with the evolution of ESO up to this point, and I hope you all agree.

We couldn’t be more excited about everything there is to look forward to in 2015. We’ll be introducing some of the new systems that we’ve talked about publicly over the last couple of months, and of course, we will be bringing ESO to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

For the team at ZOS, the remainder of 2014 will be spent working on one of our largest updates yet and continuing our work on the console versions.”
