The Elder Scrolls: Legends Content Releases and Development on Indefinite Hiatus
All new content for Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls: Legends has been put on indefinite hiatus, as recently announced in the game's subreddit.
Bethesda released an official statement for The Elder Scrolls: Legends in its subreddit in regards to any new content. According to said statement, there was one more set scheduled to release this year. However, Bethesda has “decided to put any new content development or releases on hold for the foreseeable future.”
They also clarified that this wouldn’t impact the release and development of the GAEA’s Asia-specific version of Legends since it operates separately. They finished the announcement itself with: “Until then, you can still download and play Legends on all existing platforms and compete online as well as in the single-player modes. We will also continue to support the game with monthly reward cards and regular in-game events. New expansions and other future content, however, are no longer under active development. We will continue to provide ongoing maintenance support.”
And as thanks to players for supporting the game until now, Bethesda is “giving away The Tamriel Collection — an assortment of new, three-attribute cards and more — to all players for free upon their next login.”
There was official reason given to explain the sudden content hiatus. Naturally fans in the subreddit who supported the game for years took the announcement hard.
The title was also set for release for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, as announced last year during E3. However, the PS4 version was thrown into doubt as cross-play is considered an “absolutely critical” feature.
