Originally, Bethesda only planned to launch its highly anticipated MMO The Elder Scrolls Online on PC and Mac until Sony reached out to them, SCEA VP Adam Boyes revealed.
Speaking with Gameinformer, Boyes said that the game ”was never planned to come to console” until Sony asked Bethesda to make the leap to the PlayStation 4. ”We just kept kind of sitting with them and being like, ‘Well, why not?…Why don’t you do this?’”
Sony refused to take Bethesda’s typical ‘We’re not panning it’ as their final answer. ”I’m like, ‘Well, what if we built a plan [where] we could do that?’” says Boyes. ”Knowing that a game is coming to console that was never going to come to console, that’s the kind of stuff that is like, ‘Yes!’ You know, hugely awesome.”
Thanks to Sony, The Elder Scrolls won’t only be launching on computer in Spring 2014, but for PS4 and Xbox One as well. The game will carry a $14.99/month subscription fee as well.
