Skyrim Listed for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on Bethesda’s Website [Update: Bug]

Posted on January 9, 2014 AT 03:16am

Bethesda’s official website for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim added Xbox One and PlayStation 4 to the list of platforms that the game is available on earlier today, before quickly removing the update.

Luckily, in true Internet fashion, OnlySP (via NeoGAF) managed to snap a shot of the updated platform listings. Could Bethesda be planning an next-gen update for its highly successful RPG, or was it just a simple update error? To add fuel to this fire, several Reddit users have claimed that they received emails from the publisher teasing an announcement on January 12—although this is a Sunday, which seems an odd day for an announcement. Also the email font reminds me more of Fallout than Skyrim.

If Bethesda was to bring an updated version of Skyrim to next-gen consoles, would they include any of the highly successful mods that have been released for the PC version? Or would it simply include improved textures?

EGM has contacted Bethesda for comment.

Update: Bethesda VP of PR and Marketing Pete Hines has stated that the platforms appearing was an accident caused by a bug. “We have been working on the CMS that runs our sites. A bug caused platforms that don’t exist to show up for some games Sorry for confusion.”

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
