Bethesda has confirmed that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of The Elder Scrolls has been delayed. The company states it is working as quickly as it can to bring the game to console players, but the delay could take up to six months.

“We continue to work on the console versions of ESO, and game development has been progressing steadily, but we are still working to solve a series of unique problems specific to those platforms,” reads a post on the game’s website. “Integrating our systems with each console manufacturer’s networks—which are both different from the PC/Mac system as well as different from each other—has been a challenging process.”

“It has become clear that our planned June release of the console versions isn’t going to be possible. Though we have made great progress, we have concluded that we’ll need about six months to ensure we deliver the experience our fans expect and deserve.”

Bethesda has also made an arrangement with Sony and Microsoft which will allow players to be eligible for a full version of The Elder Scrolls Online on PS4 or Xbox One for just $20, if they purchase the game on PC before the end of June. This will include the ability to transfer characters over to either console version, and an additional 30 days of game time.
