Rumour: Elder Scrolls Online for PS4 May Be Suffering a Six Month Delay

In slightly troubling news, a recent addition to The Elder Scrolls Online's FAQ page suggested that the MMO's release on the PlayStation 4 would be delayed by six months. Once spotted, the offending answer was quickly removed; however, some crafty Reddit users managed to take a screenshot of the page, and have revealed its contents to the world.

"While it has become clear that our planned June release of the console versions isn't going to be possible," the post read, "we have made great progress, [but] we have concluded that we'll need about six more months to ensure that we deliver the experience that our fans expect and deserve." This news has yet to be confirmed by Bethesda, so it's probably best to wait a bit longer before you unleash the anger of the dragons upon the company.

Were you looking forward to taking a trip through Tamriel in The Elder Scrolls Online, or was that pesky subscription fee stopping you in your tracks? Let us know in the comments section below.

That response is really badly worded. I had to read it about three times to try to make sense of it.

Note: Since this rumor appears to be coming from the sources of a source, be sure to take everything you’re about to read with a huge grain of salt. Also, when a rumor sounds too good to be true, it usually is. This is a lot for Sony to announce in just one press event — even one as large as E3 — so adjust expectations accordingly.

According to Dualshockers, an anonymous source contacted them and has revealed details about Sony’s upcoming E3 2014 Press Conference (expected to happen on Monday, June 9th at night). The source says that the information they have received comes from contacts within Sony Worldwide Studios and the BBH New York marketing firm, while Dualshockers says they have confirmed some of the given information with a second source.

Here’s everything they heard, but keep in mind that everything is a rumor right now:

Info From Both Sources

Uncharted on PS4 will have a 3-minute trailer featuring in-engine footage, with gameplay spread out across the video. The release date is apparently Summer 2015, with a tropical setting and different time periods with Nathan/Francis.
Media Molecule’s PS4 title will use Project Morpheus and have 3D world building and quirky visuals. Could be called Entwined and is said to be out in Late 2015.
Guerrilla Games’ new IP will be an RPG and will be shown off during the conference.
Japan Studio will debut Project Beast, a spiritual successor to Demon’s Souls, and The Last Guardian for PS4.
Info From One Source

Gran Turismo 6 will come to PS4 with improved 1080p/60fps visuals and extra features/tracks in Mid/Late 2015.
A God of War 4 CG teaser will be shown, with the game having a Late 2015 release date.
Kill Strain will be related to the Syphon Filter reboot on PS4, with Sony Bend working on it. Release could happen in Winter 2014.
Wipeout is coming to PS4.
Quantic Dream has a trailer set for either E3 or gamescom, with Quantic and Ready at Dawn possibly becoming part of Sony Worldwide Studios.
The Order: 1886 will have a stage demo.
Ninja Theory is far into development on a PS4 exclusive that might be Heavenly Sword 2.
Sony London will show off a AAA third-person title.
Sucker Punch’s inFamous: Second Son DLC includes a new power and (possibly) a new setting.
DriveClub will be shown off, with a PS4 demo set to hit the PlayStation Store on the same day.
Rockstar (with Grand Theft Auto), Ubisoft, EA, Konami, Capcom, Warner Bros, Activision, Square Enix, and Take-Two are expected to be on stage.
New PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection titles will be announced.
Project Morpheus, the Sony Entertainment Network, and PlayStation Now are said to be getting some time.
The PS3 and PS Vita will get price drops, with the PS Vita and PS3 getting only a little bit of attention during the show.
Finally, the source says Sony will close out E3 2014 with a teaser for The Last of Us 2.
As said above, treat everything you read here as a rumor, and an extremely bold one.

@tulaib_100 i saw that last night from Dualshocker (I thought they deleted the post after a few hours) but sounds too much like a Christmas list IMO and no word about Destiny or Shadow of the Beast..
I wish it was true but very skeptical about it



Scollurio said:

Honestly after I played the Beta on PC extensively and watched some friends who got the game play (by the way all of them stopped playing already) I won't pick it up anyways. Too bad.

I still haven't had any official email from ESO or Bethesda to confirm a delay, nor have I received anything from Game. I wish they would still deliver my Imperial Edition just so I can enjoy it before I can play the game. I'm not too fussed about the delay, I have plenty of backlog. Its no surprise that Bethesda has produced what must be a buggy mess at the moment if six months is true.



ToOGoodOfAPlaya said:

@SimonAdebisi exactly this.
Besides, if it is true, at least they have informed their users that they need time and it will be late. Some devs dont even bother.
Better 6 months and it fairly ironed out than a buggy mess.



Demi_God said:

I hope this isn't delayed for 6 months :/. I really want to play this game, it looks wicked.



MadchesterManc said:

@Scollurio I didn't like the look of this Elder Scroll Online either with all Ive seen. Shame as I was looking forward to it pre-launch

I tend to look to Angry Joe for his reviews when it comes to mainstream titles as he's usually spot on & even he was disappointed with this game despite being an Elder Scrolls fan (The reviews HERE if you want to check it) If its to be delayed, good. Then they might have a decent product when its finally released on Ps4

@Munkyknuts hey, as admittedly poorly as a 256 system could run TES4&5 / FO3&NV, TESO is made by Zenimax Online, not Bethesda Studios.
I honestly don't even care if it never comes out lol I like the conversation aspect of sp



Bad-MuthaAdebisi said: 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. The offer will allow you to begin playing immediately on the PC/Mac, and then add the PS4 or Xbox One version and transfer the character(s) you have created and developed. And, you don’t have to pay full price for the game twice. For $20, eligible PC and Mac players will have the option to add a full, digital version of ESO on either the PS4 or the Xbox One with your character transfer(s), and another 30 days of included game time.
