The development of The Elder Scrolls: Legends has stopped. This news comes from Gamesindustry.biz, who reports that the previously planned expansion has been scrapped. It was supposed to release at the end of this year. So, why was this move taken? What is the future of the upcoming console ports? Well, there are no answers to these questions, and the news is quite sudden.
However, the development of the Asia-specific version of The Elder Scrolls: Legends will continue, and the in-game events and monthly reward cards will still be supported. It is said that this Asian version will be crucial in how development on the game continues in the future.
The Elder Scrolls: Legends Takes a Seat
The news was initially announced on the game’s community page on Reddit. The post summarises what will be happening with The Elder Scrolls: Legends from this point on.
The statement begins with the news mentioned above of the cancellation of the new expansion:
“Our previous roadmap indicated we would be releasing one more set this year. We decided to put any new content development or releases on hold for the foreseeable future.”
So, it is concrete that any fresh content that was supposed to be coming will no longer be releasing. And, while the separate work on the Asian-specific version is still underway, it is unlikely we will see any new expansions to The Elder Scrolls: Legends for some time, if ever.
However, they are offering a giveaway to players on their next log-in:
“To thank you all for supporting Legends these past few years, and for continuing to play with us, we are giving away The Tamriel Collection – an assortment of new, three-attribute cards and more – to all players for free upon their next login.”
Therefore, if you are looking to get into the game or return, then now is the time to appreciate what the game has available. Well, it’s better to enjoy what is there rather than mourn the loss.
