Elder Scrolls Legends is currently on its deathbed, as all new content for the game has been put on hold for the foreseeable future.
I freaking hate to see this. A game, one that isn’t that bad at all, stopping development. Elder Scroll Legends is basically on its deathbed now, as was announced on this Reddit thread. Why? Well, why do all games slowly die out? They lack an active playerbase, and they’re not making money. As, you know, maintaining games and making new content for them is quite expensive. So, when you invest money into something, you expect to get money back in the long run. Unfortunately, Elder Scrolls Legends hasn’t been a profitable title for Bethesda, so it won’t be getting more new content.
Maintenance will still be provided to Elder Scroll Legends
The game was supposed to get one more set this year. That won’t be happening it seems. But, the GAEA’s Asia version of this game is not affected by this. Strange, but maybe that version is doing better financially than this one. Everything is possible, but I do know that the players are quite devastated. Most of them got scared when they heard that people were leaving the company. But then a roadmap appeared and promised more content. Everyone cast their fears of the worst aside, only for them to return in the worst way possible.
Thankfully, the game is still playable. Monthly reward cards and in-game events will still occur. Maintenance support will also be provided. Also, the next time you log in, you will get The Tamriel Collection for free. As a way of showing love to the players that supported the game.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Elder Scrolls universe, I’ve got two games for you. There’s TES V: Skyrim, an open-world RPG full of dragons, catpeople, werewolves, and assassins, and The Elder Scrolls Online, which offers the same things but in an MMO environment.
