The latest "Road Ahead" has been published on the Elder Scrolls Online site. The article begins with a retrospective look back at all the team has accomplished in the last several months and then starts a long look at what is yet to come. Of most notable interest is the news that Update 6 will be heading to the public test server in January and that, while no release date is yet set for console versions, they are closing in.
Update 6 will include both the Champion System and the Justice System. Our own Ryan Getchell took at look at the two new systems so be sure to check out his recent article.
The team also let fans know that both the XBox One and Playstation 4 versions of ESO are in a playable state and that work is steadily progressing. Both versions will be released at a point in time when the Justice and Champion Systems can be included so, at this point, there is no firm release window available.
It’s also important to note that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of ESO are not just ports of the PC/Mac 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. 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.
