Bethesda’s “The Elder Scrolls: Legends” Has Been Cancelled on Console

Bethesda Softworks has recently announced that the planned console release of The Elder Scrolls: Legend is officially “on hold”. It will reportedly remain so for the foreseeable future, effectively putting a hold on the game ever coming to consoles.

TES: Legends is Bethesda’s entry into the card-battling genre that has seen competitors such as Blizzard’s Hearthstone and CD Projekt RED’s Gwent gain in popularity. Legends, which was originally released on mobile and PC in 2017, has had several paid expansion packs released in its life.

An End of an Era

As noted in Bethesda’s development roadmap, an additional expansion was due to arrive in 2019. Writing to the Legends’ subreddit, however, Bethesda has said how they;

“decided to put any new content development or releases on hold for the foreseeable future”.


However, Legends will remain available to download on PC and mobile despite this announcement. Furthermore, players will still be able to gain access to the game’s single-player modes. And there will still be monthly reward cards, maintenance, and in-game events held in frequent succession.

Again, however, any new expansions and future content not already released is no longer on the cards (sorry).

Bethesda added;

“New expansions and other future content, however, are no longer under active development”.


Following in Some Familiar Footsteps?

Though this officially marks the end of The Elder Scrolls: Legends, Bethesda is making amends to its community.

“To thank you all for supporting Legends these past few years…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”.

Bethesda’s announcement on Legends’ future comes a mere few days after CDPR’s announcement that they would also be discontinuing Gwent on consoles. They believe that they can longer “support a growing number of different versions…while improving feature parity between them”.
