Firor started the post by wishing everybody well and goes on to say, “As you probably know, in response to the current pandemic, everyone at ZOS has been working from home since March 16. This is the first time we’ve ever tried remote work as a studio, and so far things are going well. It looks like we’ll be able to ship Update 26 (with the Greymoor Chapter) about a week after we initially planned it”.
Right now France is in lockdown, in fact, all of Europe is. The French voice actors of the game are not able to go to the recording studios to record their lines. Once the recording studios open, it would take about two to three more months for the language to be included in the game. There will be French subs, and the only voice overs are in English.
The current pandemic has people in self-isolation being stuck at home. Because of this, a lot of gamers were able to play their favorite games. Firor said, “Our player population is larger than normal right now as many of you are stuck at home, and video games like ESO are a wonderful distraction from a daily life that is not always awesome. We’ve had some really fun ESO events this month, including our ongoing Anniversary Jubilee, so we will all be watching for any issues caused by an already large population playing ESO getting even larger.”
Firor reassures the community that Greymoor will be released and that they are doing everything that they can do to make that happen. Firor closes the post by saying, “Please stay safe and healthy and enjoy getting away from your daily life for a bit by adventuring in ESO–and wash your damn hands.”
