ZeniMax Online Studios wants to remind everyone that their favorite MMO set in the world of the Elder Scrolls is totally coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Someday. Game Director Matt Firor posted a look back at the work done since launch and a peek at the next update that will add a new “justice system” that will allow the kinds of larcenous behavior Elder Scrolls fans love. Stealing from vendors, pickpocketing, and facing the consequences for being a thief in Tamriel will be possible in the January update. Beyond the upcoming improvements to the PC version, Firor pointed out that work continues on the console versions.
It’s also important to note that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of ESO are not just ports of the PC/Mac game. We have completely replaced the PC user interface with a console-specific UI designed from the ground-up with a controller and a living room play experience in mind. We’ve also added voice chat and full integration with XBL and PSN.
The Elder Scrolls Online for consoles was first announced in June 2013 during the Sony E3 press conference.
