Bethesda’s MMO The Elder Scrolls Online has been delayed for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Director Matt Firor announced on Friday that the delay will likely push the release into the start of 2015. Recently Bethesda announced that The Elder Scrolls could not be guaranteed for an end of 2014 release day.

“As I’ve mentioned, we have been (and will continue to be) steadily working on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of ESO,” Firor said in a blog post. “They are playable and fun right now, but there’s still some work to do before we can set an official launch date.”

“First and foremost, we want to make sure that two of our most important systems still in development–the Justice and Champion Systems–are included in the console release,” he added. “Those two systems will introduce a huge amount of content to the game, and we know everyone is looking forward to the new types of gameplay they provide.”

Extra time has been required because The Elder Scrolls Online is not simply a port of the original PC and MAC versions of the game.

“We have completely replaced the PC user interface with a console-specific UI designed from the ground-up with a controller and a living room play experience in mind,” Firor announced. “We’ve also added voice chat and full integration with XBL and PSN. Expect to see lots of news about our console versions in early 2015.”

The Xbox One and PS4 versions of The Elder Scrolls were slated for an April 2014 release alongside the MAC and PC version. The company has decided to now offer a $20 upgrade offer for gaming console players.
