Official Discussion Thread for "Greymoor Console Launch Date Update"

This is the official discussion thread for the blog article Greymoor Console Launch Date Update. The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor will now launch on consoles June 10 out of respect for George Floyd's funeral service.

We are delaying the PlayStation®4 and Xbox One launch of Greymoor out of respect for George Floyd and the service planned in Houston for June 9. We feel it would not be right for us to celebrate our launch and distract from more important events on that day.

Maintenance will begin on Tuesday, June 9 at 10PM EDT, and we expect it to last for seven hours. Patch notes will be published during maintenance.

    All of us on consoles will be able to start the download sometime between 10 PM EDT on June 9 and 5 AM EDT on June 10. The console servers are scheduled to be down for the whole seven hours, but we may be able to start the download sometime before 5 AM EDT on June 10.

    Greymoor will be available June 10 for purchase on PlayStation Store, according to the Announcements screen I am seeing when I start ESO on PS4.

    This I know. What I’m wondering is what time the game will be available in the playstation store to purchase which is something none of the announcements have stated yet.

    I'm a PS4 player and have zero issues with the one day delay to show respects.

    My original point from the previous thread on the PS4 release still stands though. The preorder bonuses end on the Wednesday and unfortunately the final Friday of the month, when a lot of people will actually be getting some pay, is two days after the cut off date. Can we please get just a handful of days extension to the offer to help out those in this situation?

    Thank you ZOS, that's very considerate of you!
    Waiting for one more day is not the end of the world, you know.

    Maybe we could also have an in-game event in the near future like the #SLAYDRAGONSSAVECATS one, but for Greymoor?

    I fail to see how the two are related. You're still doing maintenance etc, surely no-one will go to hell for pushing the button to make Greymoor available.

    Very disappointed after already having to wait an extra couple of weeks for it.

    Sure, someone could push the button.

    But if the Launch goes anything like it did on PC, they may be wise to expect it to be more of a "all hands on deck, all day" situation. Sure, they think they've nailed the bugs, but caution is good, right?

    ZOS is an American company and this move also supports employees who may desire to participate in various memorials and/or peaceful protests on the day of the funeral. Distracted or absent employees and the potential for a tumultuous launch are a poor combination.

    I'm not really sure how I feel about the delay as I'm on PC and haven't bought Greymoor, so this doesn't effect me in any way.

    I see we've got posters condemning ZOS for doing something for this man and posters condemning ZOS as hypocritical for not doing something for all such incidents. No doubt ZOS would also be condemned for doing nothing, particularly if their own employees desire to participate in memorials.

    Truly, they are damned no matter which way they choose.

    ZOS [...] they are damned no matter which way they choose.
    This happens if a statement is not strong enough.
    "Wash me (console players) but don't get me wet (pc players)", seems not like a strong statement.
    A full day all server shutdown in commemoration - this would be a strong statement.

    Do you have the courage for a strong statement, ZOS?

    Greetings,

    We have recently had to remove a handful of comments due to baiting or insulting commentary. We ask that everyone remains respectful of the fact that this post touches on a sensitive and difficult subject for many, if not all of us, including members of the same ESO community that you are a part of.

    Please remember that insulting and baiting other members are both violations of our rules, along with tasteless, vulgar, or obscene material. Please be kind to one another and remember to remain civil as this thread continues.

    I think it is a good idea but it rings a little hollow given that it is only impacting a portion of the playerbase. If the memorial for George Floyd is going to be acknowleged should bring all the megaservers down for the duration of the memorial services or something to that effect imo

    That is not the point. It isn't that people should stop playing. That is an individual choice and players can handle that individually. The point is in the celebration of the Greymoor release, which rings tacky to some people on a memorial day for something that has become a US, and to a degree, a world sensation.

    That would certainly address the accusations of PC vs Console favoritism. It doesn't really address the fact that they will make a portion of their playerbase unhappy no matter what they choose. It just makes that unhappy portion spread out over all three platforms for all players as opposed to console players who bought Greymoor.

    Its sort of an interesting debate, really.
    Should we do it because that would be fair?
    Or is it a case of "misery loves company"?

    (Personally, I'd be fine with losing a day of play, as per your suggestion.)
