At QuakeCon this past weekend, Bethesda Softworks Senior VP of Marketing and Communications Pete Hines said that, in essence, that The Elder Scrolls: Legends would not be coming to PlayStation 4 unless Sony lightened up its stance regarding cross-platform play.
More precisely, GameInformer's Andrew Reiner asked Hines about what console players should expect from TES: Legends. Hines responded by saying, "It is both cross-platform play and cross-platform progress," at which point Reiner stopped him to ask about PlayStation 4. Hines danced around the answer, not naming names, while saying that cross-platform play is "essentially non-negotiable" and "This is what we are doing, what we need, and what we intend."
It's the diplomatic answer, for sure, and one tailored so as not to directly implicate and irritate Sony to any great degree. But it also seems like Bethesda is committed to cross-platform play for Legends and is willing to spurn the PS4 if Sony doesn't come around. ("I am aware," Hines said when asked about Fortnite and the PS4.) Considering the company's stance not to launch Fallout 76 on Steam, there's every reason to take Hines and Bethesda at their (implied) word.
