Elder Scrolls Online for PC, Mac delayed

Bethesda has announced that they’re pushing the launch of The Elder Scrolls Online forward to sometime next year so that the MMO can drop on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at the same time. The game was originally expected to come out from under those mudcrabs this year. What mudcrabs? These mudcrabs!

Oh I say, are you implying I may have sequestered some sort of idle recreational diversion within this splendid carapace? I’m not sure I appreciate your tone, sir. I am both a gentlemancrab and a scholarcrab, I’ll have you know, and you shouldn’t believe everything you read about in those vile tabloids. Flotsam is perfectly nutritious, even when it’s served upon the pale, supple belly of a young adventurer such as yourself, and besides, that’s not me in those sordid photographs.

“We are thrilled to bring this game to consoles, in addition to the PC and Mac,” said game director Matt Firor in the press stuff. “It’s something our fans have been requesting since we first announced the title, and something our team is excited to offer. Everyone will be able to play The Elder Scrolls Online the way they want to play.”

To make up for the delay, there’s a new trailer! Okay, it might not totally make up for it, but it’s something.
