Elder Scrolls Online Release Date for PS4 and Xbox One Further Delayed, but Pre-orders are Live

Elder Scrolls Online is one of the most awaited games by Xbox One and PS4 players, and millions across the entire world are wondering when exactly its release date is going to take place. Back in May, it was announced that Elder Scrolls Online for PS4 and Xbox One have been delayed, but an exact date hasn’t been provided.

Now, according to some rumors circulating online, Bethesda said that the game will make its way for Xbox One and Play Station 4 users by the beginning of December, this year, but if it meets further hindrances, there are chances that it will have to delay it to the beginning of 2015.

Bethesda released the PC version of The Elder Scrolls Online in April and it then updated it with the free DLC adventure zone Craglorn. However, pre-orders are already live and you can place yours for $60 on the Microsoft Store or Amazon.

The reason for updating you with info is that Bethesda previously said that the game would get launched in June, and since we’re nearing the month’s end, you should know that the developer has the November-December deadline in mind. The reason for the repeated delay is said to be some unique problems that the game maker is facing when trying to port the game to the Xbox One and the PS 4.

Here’s what Bethesda said in a previous statement:

“We continue to work on the console versions of ESO, and game development has been progressing steadily, but we are still working to solve a series of unique problems specific to those platforms”

“Integrating our systems with each console manufacturer’s networks–which are both different from the PC/Mac system as well as different from each other–has been a challenging process. It has become clear that our planned June release of the console versions isn’t going to be possible. Though we have made great progress, we have concluded that we’ll need about six months to ensure we deliver the experience our fans expect and deserve.”

However, to try and make peace with the eager fans, Bethesda is still running a sweet deal, which will last for 7 more days:

“The offer will allow you to begin playing immediately on the PC/Mac, and then add the PS4 or Xbox One version and transfer the character(s) you have created and developed. And, you don’t have to pay full price for the game twice. For $20, eligible PC and Mac players will have the option to add a full, digital version of ESO on either the PS4 or the Xbox One with your character transfer(s), and another 30 days of included game time.”

But when June ends, what other goodies will Bethesda come up with to make it up for an incredibly delayed release date?

  1. While I’m a PC player of the game I still don’t understand why the $20 only applies to PC owners.

    To be honest, I continue to ask players who is going to the console game and it seems like less than three people and I’ve been playing and asking since April.

    It would make better sense if the game were free for PC customers (why are we encouraged to spend $79 or $99 for the game?

    The $20 should apply to non-PC customers who placed a pre-order on or by June 30th.

    Very confusing and almost a loss in marketing opportunity as it’s not the customers fault but rather the developers faults.

    Offer beta to all pre orders by June and any PC game owners in July/August.

    1. Not like it matters, it will be free to play by this time next year anyways. It is quickly following the Star Wars route.
