Bethesda Delays Mobile Elder Scrolls Game Launch to 2019

Elder Scrolls: Blades Now Arriving on Q1 2019

One of the more surprising announcements during Bethesda‘s press conference at E3 2018 is the new Elder Scrolls Blades. Unlike The Elder Scrolls VI, The Elder Scrolls Blades is a mobile phone game. However, this is not some 2D point-and-touch game with cute sprites like Fallout Shelter. Instead, it is a 3D first-person RPG game with surprisingly very impressive graphics and mechanics.

Bethesda head honcho Todd Howard claims that it features “console quality graphics”, but with a uniquely mobile experience. Even the action is real time and follows the user’s gestures. From the demo they showed, it appears that the controls are very responsive.

Why is Elder Scrolls Blades Being Delayed?

For Bethesda’s part, they did not officially disclose any particular reason as to why. Following the recent backlash with Fallout 76, coupled with Blizzard‘s Diablo Immortal debacle, it makes sense for Bethesda to delay ‘Blades’ launch for a while.

 

Also, they are most likely working out some bugs and cleaning up the game before the actual launch. After all, they have missed the Fall 2018 launch period. Plus, they would not want to give ammunition to any critics right now who might still be sore about Fallout 76.

For now, users can still sign up for Early Access by heading on to playblades.com. Note that it requires a Bethesda.net account to sign up.

Once the game is available, Bethesda says it will be available on both iOS and Android platforms.
