The Elder Scrolls: Legends Card Game Canned By Bethesda

If you’ve been playing The Elder Scrolls: Legends for some time now, it might be best to move on to other things.

Bethesda Softworks has announced that they will be putting development for the digital card game based on the popular fantasy game setting of The Elder Scrolls franchise “on hold for the foreseeable future.”

This announcement was posted on the official subreddit by the devs, which also details how a new card set planned for this year’s roadmap was also withheld, much to the dismay of some of its player base.

To compensate current players for the halting of further development, Bethesda has also announced that it will be releasing a free card set, The Tamriel Collection, for their next login. At that, The Elder Scrolls: Legends will still be playable, but will not see any new content released any time soon.

The Elder Scrolls: Legends has endured a rather troubling lifespan since its release in 2017, as it struggled to compete with the likes of more established card games in the market, such as Hearthstone, and Magic: The Gathering.

We’re not sure exactly why Bethesda is cancelling it, but if it’s anyone’s guess, it’s because they might be focusing all their energies on developing The Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield.

In any case, this could make one wonder about how smoothly the launch of Riot Games’ very own card game, Legends of Runeterra, might go, given how concentrated the card gaming community is these days.
