If you've been holding off on picking up Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls Online on PC because you were planning on enjoying the game from the comfort of your living room couch via your shiny new PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, then you could be in for some very bad news today.
An "accidental" posting on Bethesda's online FAQ for the game, which has since been removed, suggested that the title has been delayed for consoles. The listing read:
The Elder Scolls Online officially launched on April 4, 2014 on PC asnd Mac. While it has become clear that our planned relase of the console versions isn't going to be possible, we have made great progress, we have concluded that we'll need about six more months to ensure we deliver the experience our fans expect and deserve.
While the news is disappointing, if true, it probably shouldn't be all that unexpected. Given the fact that the PC version of the game had been in development for the best part of a decade before it launched in April, and that the developer would most likely only have had development kits for the PS4 and XBO for a couple of years, at most, getting the game out so close to the PC launch was probably asking a little too much.
Although it would have been great to be able to see out the slower summer months with a title as engaging as TESO, at least now gamers can look forward to getting acquainted with the universe over the holidays, when they potentially have a little more time for gaming (in between all the turkey and stuffing, of course).
