The Elder Scrolls Legends -- "We're Getting Closer to Showing It"

But not there yet.


Bethesda is "getting closer" to talking about and showing more of its free-to-play collectible card game The Elder Scrolls Legends--but the company isn't ready to do that just yet.

Marketing executive Pete Hines shared the update on Twitter in response to a fan who said they were going to spend money on Hearthstone unless Bethesda had some information to share on Legends.

Hines didn't budge. "Yeah, I don't really go for that," he said. "We're getting closer to talking about it and showing the game but not there yet."

Legends was announced during Bethesda's E3 2015 briefing. No gameplay was shown in the debut trailer, nor has any footage been released since. What we do know, however, is that Legends will include Khajiit, Orcs, Elves, Nords, and Ghouls in some way.

The game, which will be available for mobile devices and PC, appears to be Bethesda's answer to Blizzard's hugely popular Hearthstone.

Bethesda hasn't promoted the game much since its announcement. In December 2015, Bethesda confirmed that Legends would not launch in 2015 as was previously the plan. At the time, the developer said delaying the game to 2016 would give the team more time to get it polished and ready for launch.

Legends won't be Bethesda's first mobile game, as the studio released Fallout Shelter back in June 2015 in the lead-up to the release of Fallout 4. At the end of 2015, Bethesda opened a development studio that will work on mobile, PC, and console games, while Bethesda's Todd Howard has pledged that the developer will make even more mobile games in the future.
