Are you still patiently waiting for a Elder Scrolls Online PS4 and Xbox One release date in 2014? We told you at the start of the month that the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game had been delayed six months.
Now though, fans are sweating even more on the likelihood of Elder Scrolls Online releasing for Xbox One and PS4 in 2015, rather than at the new schedule of late 2014.
That means that the only way to get your Elder Scrolls Online fix at the moment is on PC or Mac. The news of a delay has deflated a lot of high expectations for the game that console owners had when expecting the game to come out in the same month as E3.
Delays happen. Bethesda’s console disc for PC players and deal with Sony and MS is a solid gesture for the community. http://t.co/R3GmXCTlqn

It will be interesting to see if the demand is still there for the game in six month’s time, especially given the fact that most will be going from Skyrim, a free to play game to Elder Scrolls Online which is subscription based and has a fee attached to it.
The latest whispers are that the game may not make a 2014 release despite the six month delay. Creative director Paul Sage had this to say in a recent interview as not it seems that there are no guarantees.
“I will tell you we are working round the clock to try and make that happen. I can’t guarantee anything, that would be foolish to do, but we are certainly working with that goal in mind.”
The big question is what the delay will mean to gamers and if the desire is still there when we get to Christmas. If Elder Scrolls Online can’t make a release this year on PS4 and Xbox One, will you still be willing to pick the game up next year?
Give us your thoughts on yet another high profile game delay. Do you actually now see it as a positive rather than negative? Perhaps the extra development time will give Zenimax time to add extra content as we’ve seen with other games that received a delay.
