It seems that players cannot expect any updates to The Elder Scrolls: Legends any time soon.

On The Elder Scrolls: Legends subreddit, Bethesda announced that the free-to-play digital card game will be put "on hold," and will not be creating any new content for the foreseeable future. The team behind the game had recently released a roadmap for the year 2019, which stated that new content for the card game would release this winter. That will not be happening after all. The developer did make it clear, however, that this hold would not affect the Asia-specific version of Legends, as that is being operated separately. There was no word on the previously announced console versions of the game.

Even though the game is on hiatus at the moment, gamers will still be able to download and play Legends on all existing platforms. They will still be able to compete online and play the game's single-player modes. Bethesda will still support the game with monthly card rewards, regular in-game events, and ongoing maintenance support. It is only new expansions and other future content that is on hold.

To thank all of the Legends players that supported the game over the last few years, Bethesda is giving away The Tamriel Collection to all players for free. This collection is an assortment of new, three-attribute cards and more.

"We are immensely grateful to work on The Elder Scrolls: Legends," Bethesda stated, "to have you as a community, and we sincerely appreciate the love and support you've given us."

The Elder Scrolls: Legends first released in 2017. The game has players collect cards and challenge each other to 1v1 matches. All of the cards are based on characters and monsters that can be found in The Elder Scrolls series. The game's most recent expansion, Jaws of Oblivion, had been released this past September.
