Zenimax Online has confirmed that The Elder Scrolls Online will not support cross-platform play between Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
All three versions of the game will be hosted on separate servers to ensure that there is fairness in PvP. The developer was also quick to reassure fans that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 announcement will not take any time away from development of the PC version.
“PC is still untouchable, it’s the PC,” creative director Paul Sage told Polygon. “We’re working to perfect UI and gameplay specific to the PC version of Elder Scrolls Online and the console version will have its own UI and be more controller-specific, but PC is going nowhere.
“I’ve been in the industry for a long time and I’ve been hearing PC is dying for years, and then consoles are dying, and then PC is dying again. It’s not.”
The Elder Scrolls Online will release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in spring 2014.
