Basically the title. Searching around I can only find results from June about the 2 existing companions and radio silence since then.

    From what I've seen from Rich it's to be decided upon zos's info after some time companions are live, so it's probably not in works until they'll see the data about people liking this feature enough.

    I’m hoping for at least one of each class. After we get one for each class, I would assume they would start selling them in the crown store because then the differences in the crown store versions would be cosmetic only.

    In an interview a few months back Rich said there would be more but they wanted to focus on quality over quantity.

    I think that 95% of work with companions was making whole system from scratch. Adding more is some work (designing new character, wrote lines, voiceover for them, making quests and skills, etc.) but it's that much work to do, so I have hope that we will see one new character in Q4 DLC. It would be lame to keep us with only teo companions for whole year, especially when whole system is new. In future we can have lesser frequency of adding new characters, but now we need more.

    If they are going to do it proper there needs to be nine companions ;)

    I would love a werewolf behemoth companion. Especially if they use a scaled down model like they were a runt from moon hunter keep who escaped before we went there.

    Plus being a MHK werewolf they would have access to magicka based attacks. Between destro staff arcane nova and perhaps some melee magicka from warden they could be rather fun.

    I love the companions in every way but my only real niggle is they take so long to level rapport with - I swear the bar hasn't moved.

    I really hope we get more companions. Like, at least one of each playable race? And maybe even a Sea Elf companion?

    Hey ZOS - Please lean into developing companions, feel free to go weird. It's a great way to explore corners of lore, each companion is their own unreliable narrator of.. IDK... a reluctant werewolf behemouth... a half-minotaur exiled from their clan... a necromancer with a literal change of heart... or just the nastiest rogue.. you tell the story and I will enjoy.

    It took me ages to find my forum log-in, and I did it because companions are the only non-event thing in ESO I've been passionate about for too long. In my ideal world all of my 18 characters would have their own unique companion.

    If Bastian isn't weird enough... ;)

    i wouldn't expect either a warden or necromancer themed companion for a very long time...we've already received a dragonknight and nightblade companion build...either a templar or sorcerer (with some kind of ability to summon i'd imagine) next...

    sorcerer seems like it will be difficult to execute - my guess is the next companion is some sort of templar themed build...race wise - i wouldn't expect to see an argonian or khajiit anytime soon, probably an altmer or nord...

    And if it's not possible to retrofit back to older quests, at least going forward have our companions react to quest decisions we make appropriately with rapport.

    Perhaps have more of these decisions as well so leveling rapport isn't all about grinding dailies, but a more organic experience.
