The Elder Scrolls: Legends is sent out to pasture as Bethesda confirms development is “on hold for the foreseeable future.”

The announcement comes via a Reddit post from the game’s community manager, Christian Van Hoose. In the statement, he says:

“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.”

The Elder Scrolls: Legends remains available to download and play, as are its online competitive game modes. However, there will be no new content or further expansions for the game. Like so many others – hello, Artifact – it appears that Legends has failed to draw enough players away from Blizzard’s all-conquering Hearthstone.

Van Hoose confirms that the game will continue to be supported by monthly reward cards, regular in-game events, and maintenance. Yay for maintenance.

It’s sad news, but as a parting gift, Bethesda is giving all players an assortment of three-attribute cards under the banner of The Tamriel Collection.

As you might expect, the response to the news is decidedly mixed, but the overwhelming sense from the replies on Reddit is one of sadness. Whatever its faults, the game that has certainly resonated with its most committed players.

You can still download The Elder Scrolls: Legends for free, right here.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
