The Elder Scrolls Online Delayed for Next-Gen Consoles

The Elder Scrolls Online: Console Enhanced is being pushed back a week to Tuesday, June 15 for launch on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles. Having originally scheduled it to launch on June 8, developer ZeniMax Online stated it delayed the next-gen launch “in abundance of caution” so that it no longer coincides with the release of the Blackwood chapter and Update 30, stating they wish to give both their undivided attention.

The Blackwood chapter and Update 30 will still launch on June 1 for PC/Mac/Stadia and June 8 for Xbox One and PS4, with the previous versions of The Elder Scrolls Online still playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S via backwards compatibility. The Blackwood chapter is part of the Gates of Oblivion adventure, set 800 years before the events of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and continuing on from the Flames of Ambition DLC.
