Official FAQ was updated, then pulled

[Update: ZeniMax has responded to the situation, confirming the delay. Players will be able to transfer their characters to the console versions for free, and eligible PC players can buy the PS4 or Xbox One version for a discounted rate of $20.]

If you were looking forward to playing The Elder Scrolls Online with a controller, you may have to wait a bit longer, if this reddit discovery is correct. According to a reddit user, The Elder Scrolls Online FAQ was updated to note that the console version had been delayed, stating, "we have concluded that we'll need about six more months to ensure we deliver the experience our fans expect and deserve" -- then removed. The post was screencapped for further proof.

As a result of this post, people have been reporting deleted comments by ZeniNax on social media -- either confirming the news, or confirming that ZeniNax doesn't want people talking about it either way. They'll likely want to officially comment either way on the matter in the near future, but for the time being it seems as if the console versions won't drop for a while.
