Update: Skyrim for PS4 and Xbox One listing was a mistake says Besthesda

By  | 


Pete Hines, Bethesda PR and marketing vice president, has clarified that the company has no plans of releasing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. He took to Twitter to clarify company’s stand stating that the there was a bug in the CMS that caused the listing of unsupported platforms.

“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”, tweeted Hines.

Original Story

In what seems to be a probable mistake, Besthesda momentarily listed its The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One alongside the previous generation consoles PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

OnlySP managed to grab a screenshot of the Skyrim listing just for posterity. The listing had links associated with PS3, Xbox 360 and PC; however, there were no links for the Xbox One and PS4 indicating that the game might just be on its way for those two consoles.

This apparent goof-up in Skyrim listing is accompanied by reports from Europe on reddit of an email being sent by Besthesda teasing a January 12 event where it wants to make a “very special announcement”.

We wouldn’t be surprised if the game does get a Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release considering Square Enix’s decision of releasing a technically superior version of Tomb Raider for the new consoles.
