Zenimax ‘working round the clock’ to get ESO out on PS4, Xbox One this year

Zenimax Online is “working around the clock” to try and get The Elder Scrolls Online out on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One by the end of this year, according to creative director Paul Sage.

Last month, the developer confirmed that it was pushing back the release of the game on consoles by six months from the originally planned June window to give the team more time to “solve a series of unique problems specific to those platforms.”

“I will tell you we are working round the clock to try and make that happen,” Sage told IGN when asked about the game coming out this year. “I can’t guarantee anything, that would be foolish to do, but we are certainly working with that goal in mind.”

Sage added that the team is currently working on the Justice system, Thieves Guild, and Dark Brotherhood. The plan at the moment is to get the Justice system out first, but he added that it shouldn’t be expected within the first four updates to the game.

“With an update like that it’s a little further on the horizon,” he explained. “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.”
