‘Skyrim’ might be coming to Xbox One and PS4

UPDATE: Skryim won’t be coming to next-gen consoles after all. Bethesda’s Vice President of Development Pete Hines revealed that the listing was due a CMS error:

A recent listing on Bethesda’s official page for Skyrim may indicate that the epic medieval RPG is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.


The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been one of the most popular titles of Bethesda’s star-studded bestsellers, and remains a solid contender even in today’s gaming market. The game’s PC port has a huge modding community dedicated to enhancing the definitive dragon-hunting RPG, with an ever-expanding library of mods to choose from.

Now it appears that Bethesda might be introducing their award-winning juggernaut to the realm of next-gen gaming.

On Bethesda’s official Skyrim landing page, the publisher lists the platforms on which the game is available, revealing two new surprising additions: Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Skyrim Next Gen

This could of course be a simple typographical error on Bethesda’s part, but if true, Skyrim will no-doubt be a welcomed addition to the sparse libraries of the Xbox One and PS4.

Nothing has been confirmed or made official at this point, but the possibility does bring up a few questions: will gamers be offered a next-gen upgrade program that discounts a next-gen purchase of Skyrim? And what resolution and fps rates can we expect on the Xbox One and PS4 versions?

We’ll have to wait to find out the answers to these queries, along with any concrete details–release dates, development, etc. Right now Bethesda has its hands quite full with The Elder Scrolls Online–which has been in its beta testing phase for quite some time now–along with horrifying survival game The Evil Within.

This news seems to counter Bethesda’s move to wave goodbye to Skyrim, which led to the publisher effectively taking staff members away from the game to work on their new project–ESO.

It’ll be interesting to see how this story shapes up in the next few months, and whether or not this was a simple error or something real.
