Bethesda changes developers for The Elder Scrolls: Legends — May 31, 2018
Bethesda has announced that the development of The Elder Scrolls: Legends will be handed from Dire Wolf Digital to Sparkypants Studios. Bethesda stated that all the current core mechanics will remain, and players will not lose any of their collection or any progression they have made in the game. The stated reasoning for this change is to help move the game in a new direction, building on Bethesda's creative vision as well as the playerbase's wishlist for features. Pete Hines and Legends community manager CVH held a live Q&A about the change the following day, which is summarized on the UESP blog.
Several members of the UESP traveled to Boston for PAX East and the Bethesda Gameplay Day event, where we interviewed ESO's game director Matt Firor and lead content designer Rich Lambert about the upcoming Summerset chapter.
