In a recent interview with Finder, Rich Lambert of ZeniMax Online Studios has confirmed that The Elder Scrolls Online will receive a support patch for Xbox Scorpio in the future, just as it did with PlayStation 4 Pro.
As for the actual improvements that will be introduced with the TESO Scorpio version, we can expect substantially the same results from the Sony console: “I think we’re going to be in for the same kinds of things that we did with the PS4 Pro,” said Lambert.
Looking at the future, the creative director also imagined how the MMO scenario could evolve with the emergence of a more powerful console generation than the current one.
“I would definitely say power is key. Memory is key. Especially in a game like The Elder Scrolls Online. There are hundreds of characters running around on the screen at any one time. We can have a 300-person battle in our game and that eats up memory. That eats up computing power and it eats up VRAM. So, the more they can pack into those newer consoles, the better. Definitely, we have seen just on console a really strong desire for a good console MMO and we’re reaping the benefits for that. But, I think as the consoles get more and more powerful, more and more people will start moving towards a console. Because it’s nice to sit on your sofa and have a beer and play.”
Recall that Morrowind was officially released yesterday, the new expansion of The Elder Scrolls Online.
