The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim pops up for Xbox One and PlayStation 4
UPDATE: Bethesda says it was just a bug in its CMS.
We'll begin emailing you updates about %gameName%.
Update: Bethesda's Pete Hines has explained that the listing was a bug. "We have been working on the CMS that runs our sites," he said. "A bug caused platforms that don't exist to show up for some games."
As for the email tease? Hines says that's a hoax, too.
Original story: Will The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim be released for the new consoles? A product listing for the game on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 temporarily popped up on Bethesda's website overnight.
OnlySP spotted and captured the information--which was quickly removed--alongside an e-mail tease from the publisher suggesting an announcement on January 12. That's this Sunday, which would traditionally be a peculiar day for a big unveiling.
A version of Skyrim on the new consoles would almost certainly bring the game in line with the PC version, which offers a far smoother, more detailed, and ultimately snappier experience. If such a port is in the works, then hopefully Bethesda could find a way for 360/PS3 users to bring their hulking saves across to their latest machines.
Oh, and the thousands upon thousands of mods.
