It seems like just yesterday we were watching Elder Scrolls: Legends get announced at E3, and now we have to report that development on the game has ended. This was announced on Reddit and said the following:
We would like to provide an update on Legends in regard to new content. Our previous roadmap indicated we would be releasing one more set this year. We decided to put any new content development or releases on hold for the foreseeable future. This decision will not in any way affect the release and development of GAEA’s Asia-specific version of Legends, which is operated separately, but will inform our decisions on content and feature development going forward.
Until then, you can still download and play Legends on all existing platforms and compete online as well as in the single-player modes. We will also continue to support the game with monthly reward cards and regular in-game events. New expansions and other future content, however, are no longer under active development. We will continue to provide ongoing maintenance support.
To thank you all for supporting Legends these past few years, and for continuing to play with us, we are giving away The Tamriel Collection – an assortment of new, three-attribute cards and more – to all players for free upon their next login. We are immensely grateful to work on The Elder Scrolls: Legends, to have you as a community, and we sincerely appreciate the love and support you’ve given us.
So, while the card game isn’t being worked on anymore it isn’t being turned off either. But, most games that go into maintenance mode only last a few months to a year or two at best. The original Guild Wars is one of the most notable outliers. At this point Elder Scrolls: Legends days are sadly numbered. Nothing else has been said about the game going into maintenance mode but we will be keeping an eye out for any more news.
