Report: Elder Scrolls Online for Xbox One/PS4 delayed six months [UPDATE]

Delay confirmed.

[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, Bethesda officially confirmed that The Elder Scrolls Online has been delayed for about six months.

The original story is below.

According to a reportedly since-deleted line from an official Elder Scrolls Online FAQ, the upcoming Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the MMO will not arrive in June as Bethesda previously said they would. Instead, the console versions of the game are to arrive in about six months, so sometime around November 2014.

Here's what the original Elder Scrolls Online FAQ said, as captured by Reddit (via The Escapist): "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 FAQ also reportedly contained a link with further explanation about the delay. The current FAQ now live on the Elder Scrolls Online site only says: The Elder Scrolls Online officially launched on April 4, 2014 on PC and Mac."

We have reached out to a Bethesda representative for comment. For more on The Elder Scrolls Online, be sure to read GameSpot's review of the PC version.
