Bethesda Pushes Back Release For The Elder Scrolls Online Greymoor Expansion

Back in January, Bethesda announced that the next approaching expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online is upon us with a release date slated for this coming May. In the reveal, the next story add-on for the ever growing online MMO revealed that players will be returning to Skyrim as a new foe has made base in the setting for 2011-released game, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

At the time of the announcement, Bethesda shared that antiquities will be debuting in The Elder Scrolls Online which will bridge to an expansive myriad of minigames that players can use to unlock in-game items to use when on their new journey. However, this new passage has been met with a hindering obstacle coming close to its arrival next month.

Announced in a new blog post, Zenimax Online Studio’s Matt Firor announced that due to the adjustments of working during this ongoing pandemic, the release date for the Greymoor expansion will be pushed only a week later than anticipated.

All of us at ZOS have been doing the same, working from home, chatting on video, and sharing far too many memes with one another–all while working hard on ESO. We long for the time when we can “return to normal,” but for now, we are–like many of you–trying to make the best of things. Despite the challenges, we are still on track for Update 26 and the Greymoor Chapter to launch only one week late.

The initially slated launch on Monday May 18 has now been ushered to the later arrival on May 26 the following Tuesday. Even more, console owners can expect a delay to a smaller extent. Xbox and PlayStation owners can expect Greymoor to ship on June 9th, exactly one week later than the original scheduled June 2nd date.

This instance will mark the second delay from Bethesda sourced by COVID-19. Back in late March, the publisher revealed that the then-upcoming Wastelanders expansion will instead be shipping a week later; pretty similar to this instance. You can read the full announcement by heading here.

Are you fine waiting the extra week for Greymoor’s arrival to The Elder Scrolls Online?

The Elder Scrolls Online is out now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
