Released in 2017, the game had received continued support from Dire Wolf Studios and Sparkypants Studios, and got four expansions for the free-to-play title. Last year, it was revealed that the game would be coming to the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 as well as the existing PC and mobile platforms. However, with this news, the console versions’ future seems ambiguous.
In a post published to the The Elder Scrolls: Legends subreddit, Bethesda explained its decision to halt “active development” on the title. “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,” it said. “This decision will not in any way affect the release and development of GAEA’s Asia-specific version of Legends, which is operated separately, but will inform our decisions on content and feature development going forward.”
Moving forward, The Elder Scrolls: Legends will be playable on all platforms and will still support online competitive modes. Players will enjoy monthly reward cards and regular in-game events as per, but there will no longer be expansions to look forward to. To express its gratitude to the The Elder Scrolls: Legends community, Bethesda will give away The Tamriel Collection for free, which includes, “an assortment of new, three-attribute cards and more.” This will be unlocked upon the player’s next login to the game.
The Elder Scrolls: Legends is out now for PC, iOS, and Android.
