Fans who have already explored every nook and cranny in Bethesda's Skyrim can look forward to a new adventure when Elder Scrolls Online launches later this year. Developed by ZeniMax Online Studios, this title will bring the acclaimed RPG series into the MMO market. We had a chance to sit down with Matt Firor, the game's director, to ask about this title's development, namely if players would be able to transfer their PC character to the console versions when they release later this year.

We are not planning on having characters transfer from one platform to another.

Not being able to transfer characters could be problematic for players that have friends playing on multiple systems. It has already been confirmed that, while those who buy the PC and Mac versions will be able to play together, PS4 and Xbox One owners will only be able to play with those who own the same console. This is most likely due to company policies or other limitations. Elder Scrolls Online will be available for PC and Mac on April 4th, and is expected to launch for the PS4 and Xbox One this June.
