The Elder Scrolls Online Could Come To Next-Gen Consoles

Elder Scrolls Online Switches To Third Person, First Screens Emerge

The Elder Scrolls Online could come to next-gen consoles according to an interview with Zenimax Online's Matt Firor from Games Industry International. According to Firor, The Elder Scrolls Online is an online game, not a massively multiplayer online role-playing game, and Zenimax is open to new opportunities when it comes to expanding their epic title.

"The 360, when announced was a pretty ridiculously cool device, but it is not so good anymore compared to PCs, and even when it was announced PCs were still better than it," Firor said. The problem, he explained, is that the technology on consoles can be limiting in terms of the size and scope of the world they want to create, whereas on a PC, the world can be wide open.

In an Elder Scrolls game, the world is a character in and of itself, so it's important that Zenimax can make it as intricate as possible.

"Online game development is all about doing whatever you want, pushing limitations, and it's just easier to do on an open platform," Firor said, adding that, "Someday, it may all change."

For now, it seems as though we'll just have to wait and see what the next gen consoles will be able to pull off to see if you'll be playing The Elder Scrolls Online on them. If the game did come to consoles, would you want to play alongside the PC gamers, or only with people playing on your specific console?
