Pete Hines, Vice President of Marketing at Bethesda states that it’s always a goal to try and get a game on as many platforms as possible.
The Elder Scrolls: Legends is the strategy card game based on the popular RPG series. It first launched back in March, 2017 and has since managed to garner quite a bit of attention. Some of you may have been wondering whether this game would be ported to consoles and according to the latest information, it’s definitely a possibility.
Dualshockers spoke to Vice President of Marketing Pete Hines about this issue, and his perspective is that it’s always better if more players are able to access a particular game. He stated, “Honestly I think everything is on the table. At the end of the day — and this is true for every game, not just Legends — we like to try and get our games to as many platforms as possible, so that as many people as possible have the option to play.
You see it on the Switch when we bring games like Doom and Skyrim and Wolfenstein 2. We spend a lot of time and effort making these things, and the bigger the audience, the better. So yeah, I would love to see us do this on consoles and Switch. But there is a lot of things that we want to do to continue to grow the competitive scene and put out new content, to update and refresh the UI and the player experience.
We have a giant bucket list of stuff we’re constantly working on, so yeah. I hope that happens, but we’ll have to see.”
For now, the company’s focus seems to be to try and polish the game as much as possible before considering porting it to consoles. However, it’s certainly good news that they haven’t yet ruled out the possibility of bringing the game to other platforms. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see what the company decides is best for the game. Either way, it will be a while before the game may be experienced on consoles.
