The delay train made keeps on rolling as the console versions of The Elder Scrolls Online are too being pushed back to a later date. According to ZeniMax Online Studios, unique problems have come to light when integrating their system with Microsoft and Sony’s networks and the planned June release of Elder Scrolls Online for consoles must be delayed to resolve these issues. ZeniMax Online Studios have concluded that another 6 months is needed to ensure the best possible experience.
As disappointing as this news is, ZeniMax Online Studios has made an arrangement to help ease those afflicted. Via a special offer, anyone who purchases and plays the PC/Mac version of The Elder Scrolls online by the end of June will have the opportunity to transfer their character(s) to either console version when they are released. This offer will allow players to play immediately on the PC/Mac, and then keep all the progress your character(s) have made when you transfer them to either the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version. And finally, eligible PC and Mac players will have the option to add a full, digital version of ESO on either console with your character transfer(s), and another 30 days of included game time, all for $20.
We will keep you updated when ZeniMax Online Studios make any additional announcements regarding details about transfers, offer dates, a supposed beta, and when Elder Scrolls Online for console will officially launch.
