3 years in the past, we stated that Bethesda’s Hearthstone-a-like The Elder Scrolls: Legends “is a refreshing tackle CCGs, however its long term stays cloudy.” Lately that long term changed into clearer, and no longer in an effective way: Bethesda introduced on Reddit as of late that new content material building is “on dangle for the foreseeable long term.” The Asia-specific model of the sport being operated one at a time via Gaea Cellular is probably not suffering from the trade, however the enlargement deliberate for this wintry weather is probably not launched.
“You’ll be able to nonetheless obtain and play Legends on all current platforms and compete on-line in addition to within the single-player modes. We can additionally proceed to toughen the sport with per thirty days praise playing cards and common in-game occasions,” group supervisor Christian Van Hoose wrote. “New expansions and different long term content material, then again, are now not underneath energetic building. We can proceed to offer ongoing repairs toughen.”
The Elder Scrolls: Legends made a cast preliminary influence, and Bethesda put actual effort into supporting it with a couple of expansions in line with the deep Elder Scrolls mythology.

That does not go away a lot room for different competition to transport, even if they are in line with well-liked houses like The Elder Scrolls. (Unrelated, however CD Projekt pulled the plug on console variations of Gwent previous this week—a accident, but additionally an indication of simply how tricky it’s to ascertain a cast foothold within the style.)
