The Elder Scrolls Online’s Greymoor expansion has been slightly delayed
Zenimax Online Studios has announced a slight delay for The Elder Scrolls Online’s Greymoor expansion chapter.
Greymoor was originally scheduled to launch for PC on May 18th, but this has been pushed back “about a week,” according to game director Matt Frior. The decision to delay the release has been made due to the team having to work from home.
“I hope this message finds all of you in good health. The number one priority for everyone on earth right now is our health and the health of our families,” he wrote in a message on the game’s official site. “As you probably know, in response to the current pandemic, everyone at ZOS has been working from home since March 16. This is the first time we’ve ever tried remote work as a studio, and so far things are going well. It looks like we’ll be able to ship Update 26 (with the Greymoor Chapter) about a week after we initially planned it.”
Frior added that the PTS release for Update 26 and Greymoor is on track for April 20th and that the studio would let players now if any unexpected problems arise that could delay the official release further.
The message also mentioned that Greymoor will launch without French voice acting due to France being in lockdown and the recording studios being closed. The expansion will feature French text and subtitles, but only English audio until the recording studios reopen. Frior noted that it takes approximately 2-3 months to record the audio and add it to the game.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor should now release around May 25th for PC, with a console release to follow on June 2nd.
