If you’re being hit with errors while trying to log in to ESO, this could be due to a period of scheduled or unscheduled maintenance. Thankfully, Bethesda Support is pretty transparent when it comes to letting players know about the current Elder Scrolls Online online server status. Here’s what you need to know about ESO maintenance on PS4 and Xbox One for today, July 29.
When will ESO maintenance on PS4 and Xbox One end?
The ESO maintenance on PS4 and Xbox One is scheduled to end at 1 PM ET/5 PM UTC.
While this was scheduled maintenance, it has been extended to last longer than expected. This could be why so many players are frustrated by the continued errors. You can see the latest maintenance period in the tweet embedded below.
⚠️The maintenance for the @TESOnline console megaservers has been extended to 1:00PM EDT / 17:00 UTC.

As explained in the recent tweet from Bethesda Support, maintenance for both the Xbox One and PS4 versions of ESO has been extended to 1 PM ET/5 PM UTC. It’s not explained why this has happened, but presumably it’s taking the developers a little longer to make all planned changes and improvements to the megaservers.
If you’re eager to get back to gaming on ESO as soon as possible, keeping an eye on the official Bethesda Support Twitter account is always a good idea. What’s more, if you’re a regular player, it’s a good idea to bookmark that page for future disconnect issues. The account manager/s are usually pretty on the ball with regular updates.

Here’s hoping those ESO megaservers are back online soon, with all fixes and improvements implemented, as players are no doubt hungry to continue the grind in this huge MMO world.
