The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One editions of The Elder Scrolls Online will not be ready until Winter, according to an official update from Bethesda.
The publisher issued a statement that said development “has been progressing steadily, but we are still working to solve a series of unique problems specific to these platforms” and that it had “become clear that our planned June release of the console versions isn’t going to be possible”.
It added: “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.”
But Bethesda has sought to make amends with disappointing fans, announcing a special offer whereby players who purchase the release PC/Mac version of the game by the end of June will have the opportunity to transfer their characters to either console version on their release.
According to the studio: “For [£12.99 GBP], 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.”
Additional details regarding character transfers, specific offer dates, and the console launch will soon be forthcoming.
