If you’re playing Elder Scrolls Online on Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, you may be experiencing crashing. Fortunately, it looks like Zenimax is on the case.

The issue was reported a few days ago as documented in the official forums. It seems a recent patch to ESO caused the MMORPG to crash on Microsoft’s next generation consoles, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

As one user noted,

“We can't pvp, load into houses, go into a bank, use a wayshrine, dungeon runs or craft anything without being dc'd. The game is totally unplayable after this morning's patch. I'm on xbox series x.”

Zenimax’s Gina Bruno commented in the forums and noted the team is aware of the issue. They’ve identified a fix as well which is currently undergoing internal testing. Gina continues,

“Our plan is to get this to you as soon as possible. However, because this is a client fix, we must go through a full certification pass with Microsoft. This means the soonest we are able to implement this change is next Wednesday, October 6. We know this news is disappointing but we are doing everything we can to make sure you all are able to get back to playing as quickly as possible. Please know we are already discussing how to best make this up to our Xbox Series X/S players, particularly for the upcoming Bounties of Blackwood event. Thanks again for your ongoing patience and understanding here.”

Although constant crashing is a real problem, it seems like you won’t have to wait too much longer for a fix. In related news, the team recently previewed Update 32 and the Deadlands set to arrive later this year. Update 32 also marks the introduction of DLSS and the debut of DLAA into Elder Scrolls Online.
