It has not been a good week for digital card based games. First CD Projekt RED confirmed that Gwent would no longer be updated on consoles, and now Bethesda has announced that The Elder Scrolls: Legends will no longer be updated. A post appeared on Reddit overnight from the publisher which stated the previously announced content was no longer in development, and that all future released had been put on hold indefinitely.
While future content is no longer in development there was confirmation that there would still be regular in-game events and monthly reward cards. For those based in Asia who have the GAEA specific version of Elder Scrolls: Legends there’s nothing to worry about as development will continue on that version due to be being under the control of a different team. The full statement from Bethesda can be read below.
We would like to provide an update on Legends in regard to new content. Our previous roadmap indicated we would be releasing one more set this year. We decided to put any new content development or releases on hold for the foreseeable future. This decision will not in any way affect the release and development of GAEA’s Asia-specific version of Legends, which is operated separately, but will inform our decisions on content and feature development going forward.
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.
To thank you all for supporting Legends these past few years, and for continuing to play with us, we are giving away The Tamriel Collection – an assortment of new, three-attribute cards and more – to all players for free upon their next login. We are immensely grateful to work on The Elder Scrolls: Legends, to have you as a community, and we sincerely appreciate the love and support you’ve given us.
Earlier this year The Elder Scrolls: Legends was announced for consoles but with these developments that is not going to happen.
