The Elder Scrolls: Legends is Bethesda’s take on the CCG, similar to Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering, it allows players to collect cards and then battle it out, in single-player modes and against others. Its main twist, other than The Elder Scrolls as a setting, is that it features different lanes for players to play cards on, each with unique effects that change up the game.

Over the weekend, however, Bethesda announced on Reddit that it is ceasing development on The Elder Scrolls: Legends, with future updates put on hold, with this marking the end of expansions that Bethesda has been developing and releasing.

“Our previous roadmap indicated we would be releasing one more set this year. We decided to put any new content development or releases on hold for the foreseeable future.” the statement reads, though this will not affect the Asia-region version operated by Gaea Mobile.

“Until then, you can still download and play Legends on all existing platforms and compete online as well as in the single-player modes. We will also continue to support the game with monthly reward cards and regular in-game events.” Bethesda’s representative said on Reddit. “New expansions and other future content, however, are no longer under active development. We will continue to provide ongoing maintenance support.”

It’s not all bad news, however, though it is bitter-sweet. Players, as a thank you, will receive a free collection of cards. “To thank you all for supporting Legends these past few years, and for continuing to play with us, we are giving away The Tamriel Collection – an assortment of new, three-attribute cards and more – to all players for free upon their next login. We are immensely grateful to work on The Elder Scrolls: Legends, to have you as a community, and we sincerely appreciate the love and support you’ve given us.”
