The Elder Scrolls Online delayed to 2015 on consoles

"Lots of news" due out in early 2015.

The Elder Scrolls Online

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of The Elder Scrolls Online, previously delayed from its June release by “about six months,” will now launch in 2015.

In a blog post, Bethesda said it is still “steadily working” on the console versions, which are in a playable state, but “there’s still some work to do” before an official launch date can e set.

“First and foremost, we want to make sure that two of our most important systems still in development—the Justice and Champion Systems—are included in the console release,” game director Matt Firor said. “Those two systems will introduce a huge amount of content to the game, and we know everyone is looking forward to the new types of gameplay they provide.

“It’s also important to note that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of The Elder Scrolls Online are not just ports of the PC/Mac game. 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. 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 Elder Scrolls Online is currently available on PC.
