Playstation 4 - Unable to Create Character

Soul Shriven

I'm currently unable to create a character on ESO on PS4.
I load up the game and attempt to make a character, after selecting a name and hitting finish it just resets to asking me to pick a name.
It seems to happen with any name I pick.

I've cleared the Application Saved Data, Restarted PS4 etc etc but it appears to be a bug with character creation.
Saw a few people on forums and reddit have had the same issue in the past, but haven't found what the actual fix is, anyone know how to fix it?

    One of my guild members just contacted me and is having the exact same issue. Ps4 NA. Advised them to submit a ticket as well.
  • Bhaal5
    Its not a already chosen name? That does a similar thing
  • Javezim
    Soul Shriven
    I tried about 50 different names,
    ended up just trying mashing the keyboard and still got the same thing.

    Please keep in mind that your character name must follow the guidelines provided on the character creation screen:
    • Must be at least two characters long
    • Must be fewer than 25 characters long
    • Cannot start with a space
    • Must end with a letter
    • No more than two of the same letter in a row
    • Cannot contain consecutive punctuation characters
    • Cannot contain more than four punctuation characters (spaces, hyphens, and apostrophes)

    If the names you've chosen follow these guidelines and you still can't create a character, please let us know.
