Bethesda Replaces The Developers Of THE ELDER SCROLLS: LEGENDS

A year after its release, The Elder Scrolls: Legends has been turned over to a new developer. The original studio handling the game, Dire Wolf Digital, has been replaced by Bethesda and handed to Sparkypants Studios. 

The news surfaced after a statement from Bethesda Softworks told IGN that the publisher was unhappy with Dire Wolf’s management of the game as Bethesda revealed numerous missed opportunities and “untapped potential.”

Now, The Elder Scrolls: Legends is being managed by Sparkypants Studios, who is known to be the makers of Dropzone. Several changes will be implemented in the game starting with an overhaul of the user interface, menus, and aesthetics. Pete Hines, a spokesperson for Bethesda, revealed that the game’s overall mechanics and design will remain unchanged, including the progression system and items available via the in-game store. 

The Elder Scrolls: Legends was initially released back in March 2017 for the PC after a one-year beta period. The game is now available on Mac, iOS, and Android. Bethesda will reveal further details, including an in-depth showcase of changes coming to the game at Bethesda’s E3 showcase, which will happen on Sunday, June 10 at 9:30 PM.
