Elder Scrolls Online for console delayed by six months - report

"We'll need about six more months to ensure we deliver the experience our fans expect and deserve"

The console version of The Elder Scrolls Online may be delayed by six months, according to a now deleted post on the game's official site.

The PC version of ZeniMax Online's MMO was launched in April, but it was greeted by mixed reviews from the press and widespread criticism for its litany of bugs.

Now, the ever diligent Reddit community has spotted an admission that the console version will be delayed six months beyond its initial June release date in an FAQ on the TESO site.

"The Elder Scrolls Online officially launched on April 4, 2014 on PC and Mac. While it has become clear that our planned June release of the console versions isn't going to be possible, we have made great progress, we have concluded that we'll need about six more months to ensure we deliver the experience our fans expect and deserve."

The line of text regarding the delay has since been removed, but the Reddit community took a screenshot to preserve its original form. According to Reddit, since then Bethesda has been deleting posts regarding the content of the text on its social media channels.

Thanks The Escapist.
