The next expansion in the massive MMORPG, Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor, has been delayed on PC and consoles.


The next expansion in the massive MMORPG, Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor, has been delayed on PC and consoles.

The disappointing news was confirmed in a statement via the Elder Scrolls news posts from the official website.

The game’s Director, Matt Firor, confirmed the news that the next chapter in the massive online game would be delayed by one week.

The message conveyed, however, is that this may not happen on the specific dates given.

Mr. Firor did state that the Coronavirus issue is to blame and that they could miss the later release window given some unforeseen circumstances:

“… we are confident that we will be able to launch Tuesday, May 26th on PC/Mac and Tuesday, June 9th on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

This, of course, could change if something happens outside of our control.

Remember, we haven’t launched a major ESO update while working remotely before, and unforeseen problems can and do crop up”.

The game’s Director also states that they are still working on various bugs and issues that have plagued the game during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Some of the issues mentioned include “delayed input” in situations where there are many players involved such as Cyrodiil Sieges and PvE events.

These issues are mainly server-based and are only present due to the sudden and unexpected amounts of players rather than actual game-breaking bugs.

Elder Scrolls Online is an MMORPG based in the world of the Elder Scrolls which was released more than 25 years ago.

Since then, The Elder Scrolls has grown into a hugely popular game series, especially the offline single-player chapters.

Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind set the standard for single-player fantasy action games.

Its sequels, Oblivion and Skyrim took the bar even higher and have been huge sellers for the games’ developer, Bethesda Softworks.

Each of these three titles all won various “Game of the Year” awards among other accolades and nominations.

Bethesda has been remarkably tight-lipped about the series’ next chapter, only releasing a very brief teaser video at E3 2018.

It has been six years since the last chapter, Skyrim was released, and the next chapter doesn’t seem to be making an appearance any time soon.

To fill in the gap, Elder Scrolls Online was released in 2015 and despite a shaky start, has become a great series in its own right.

Set 2000 years before the events of the single-player chapters, ESO was initially set in a small portion of a war-torn Tamriel as the “Three Banners War” rages.

Since then, ESO has seen numerous ongoing DLCs and excellently executed chapters that have opened up more of the continent.

The first chapter expansion, Morrowind for example, takes the player to Vvardenfell which includes the entire map of its offline namesake from 2002.

The latest expansion, Greymoor, is set in Western Skyrim, which until now only a small section of the area has been playable.

Greymoor is said to include a gothic storyline including Vampires, Witches and an Archaeology profession.

The notorious Vampire Lords are also back as a supernatural option for players, not seen since Skyrim’s excellent “Dawnguard” DLC.

    It’s not just the console/computer games industry that is being dragged down by the impact of the virus outbreak, the music business is suffering too – Dua Lipa has bravely released her new album not long ago, but Lady Gaga has decided to put hers back until later in 2020.

    Plus I was looking forward to Top Gun 2 as well – but now that’s not happening until the very end of the year.

    When will this madness ever end?
