Bethesda's trading card game The Elder Scrolls: Legends seemed to be getting quite the response back when it launched, but it seems that its long-term fortunes weren't as great as the initial reactions. Namely, the company announced further development is no more.

They broke the news via a Reddit post, where they confirmed that they won't be releasing 2019's last remaining set, which is what the earlier plan entailed. "We decided to put any new content development or releases on hold for the foreseeable future", they said. 

Interestingly, this change will not affect the launch of GAEA's Asia-specific version of The Elder Scrolls: Legends, nor its development, but it looks like Bethesda will be pulling the plug on the Western version for good. 

It won't happen right away, mind you - you can still download and play The Elder Scrolls: Legends regularly. "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", the post reads. 

You can expect Bethesda to provide ongoing maintenance support for The Elder Scrolls: Legends as well, but it remains to see for how long.

If you had any doubts whether this means the beginning of the end for The Elder Scrolls: Legends, then how about a parting gift from Bethesda? Anyone logging into the game in the coming will get The Tamriel Collection for free, so we hope that's enough to quell the sadness.

The Tamriel Collection is a set of new, three-attribute cards but Bethesda may have a few additional surprises too. 

"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", they said.
