The Elder Scrolls Online might not release on PS4 & Xbox One this year

The Elder Scrolls Online developer Zenimax Online Studios isn't making any promises about the MMORPG hitting PS4 and Xbox One in 2014.


As you may recall, The Elder Scrolls Online was recently delayed by six months on both formats.

However, creative director Paul Sage told IGN that he wasn't prepared to guarantee anything.

"I will tell you we are working round the clock to try and make that happen," he said. "I can’t guarantee anything, that would be foolish to do, but we are certainly working with that goal in mind."

Sage added that Zenimax is currently working on The Elder Scrolls Online's justice system, Thieves Guild and The Dark Brotherhood for PC. It's not clear when these new components will launch, but Sage went on, "With an update like that it’s a little further on the horizon.

"The reason is we do want fully fleshed out skill systems and quest lines for that, so that’s further out. My prediction is we’ll probably get the Justice System in before we get the Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood in, just because we want that system to be fully fleshed out and players used to the system before they have to use it.

"I don’t have a date lined up, but it’s a little further out. I wouldn’t expect it in the first four updates."

Finally, on housing, Sage added, "I will tell you that when we get to player housing, and I think it’s one of those things that when you have a game that’s been running a long time it’s one of those things you want to get to, it has to be something that’s done differently and done well.

"That’s about all I can tell you. We have no firm plans for anything on housing at this time."
