The other day we reported that thanks to a sighting on Bethesda’s website, it looked like Skyrim could be headed onto next-gen consoles like the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. We love that idea and the improved graphics and performance has us drooling, but sadly this may not be happening.
It was simply a mistake, or so Bethesda tells us. On Twitter, Bethesda’s Pete Hines revealed that the false listing was due to a bug on their CMS platform, which caused it to display additional platforms for some of their games. That’s their story anyway and they are sticking to it. Hines says, “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.”
Oh well, for now it looks like we may not be getting the game on the new consoles. Skyrim was launched on the PC, Xbox 360, and the PlayStation 3 some time ago. Microsoft’s Xbox platform even managed to gain an exclusive over the PS3 and the PC with DLCs released for their console first. It has made them a lot of money. Hopefully we might still get this title, but who knows.
