The Elder Scrolls Online might miss its release window for next-gen consoles


ZeniMax Online Studios, who is the developer for The Elder Scrolls Online isn’t setting a firm date for the title to release this year.

The creative director Paul Sage, in an interview with IGN said he wouldn’t 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 also mentioned that ZeniMax is currently working on the justice system for the game, Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood for PC.

It’s not quite known how this will make its way into the game, but Sage said, 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.”

Lastly, in terms of housing, Sage said, “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.”

It seems like they’re are trying to add more features into the game that will give a better experience for players in the future.
