Is there a patch notes "schedule"?

I was wondering when we can expect a new set of patch notes to drop — is that something that can be accurately anticipated or will they be a surprise?

    Unfortunately unlike most games that post their patch notes within 6+ months in advance, ESO is under NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) so they are unable to keep in touch with their community when it comes to balance, testing, and feedback.

    Hope this help, god bless.

    Thank you for the response, but that didn't answer my question. Does ZOS have a specific timeframe they keep to with regard to feature updates (which would mean we could anticipate when the next patch notes will drop) or do feature updates come out intermittently?

    The latter mostly. They have an internal roadmap plotting major releases, and this year they shared it with us so we knew to anticipate “the year of the dragon” but that plan only shares which calendar quarters are being targeted, and doesn’t make any mention of incremental patches.

    Consoles patch notes will always be very similar to the pc patch notes. Might include some late fixing.

    Previous changes in the last 2 updates shows that they don't have a clear path, at least that's what it seems: buff skills on one patch (U22) and nerf the same skills in the next patch (U23)...
