It has been three years since Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls: Legends took of CCGs, but that does not mean that its future was bright. Today we found out how gorgeous it actually is: the studio announced that new content for the game is put on hold for the foreseeable future. Gaea Mobile is doing the Asian version of the game, but it won’t be affected by the change. However, the expansion they had planned for this winter will not be released.
You can download and play the game on all the platforms, and you can also compete online, and in single-player modes. They will still continue to support the game with reward cards and in-game events every month. This comes from the community manager Christian Van Hoose. The new expansions and some other future content will not be in the works. But the ongoing maintenance support will still happen.
Bethesda halted the development of The Elder Scrolls: Legends
The game The Elder Scrolls: Legends was terrific at first and made an incredible impression, and the studio put a lot of effort into supporting it with many expansions, which were based on the deep Elder Scrolls mythology. They continued to improve it, and the change in studios coming from Dire Wolf to Sparkypants was not such a good idea, but it managed to recover from it.
However, TESL was not able to get Hearthstone’s grip on the CCG market, and players seemed to start playing other games, such as Magic: The Gathering Arena. But that did not leave much room for other competitors to actually move, even when they are based on popular games such as The Elder Scrolls. It is pretty hard to establish a stable position in this genre.
