‘Skyrim’ listings for Xbox One and PS4 on Bethesda’s website added in error

On Wednesday, the official Bethesda website noted that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was available for the Xbox One and Playstation 4 in addition to the existing platforms. This led many speculate that next-gen versions of the game were in the works and that the developer had accidentally leaked new of their existence prior to the official announcement. However, Bethesda’s Pete Hines brought clarity to the situation on Jan 9 when he tweeted that the next-generation listings were added in error by a bug encountered while updating the website.

Hines apologized for the confusion while also using his personal Twitter account to inform fans that a mass email that went out earlier this week claiming that Bethesda would be unveiling a new game later this month was indeed a hoax. He stated that the developer changed their policies after a different recent hoax and would therefore immediately confirm the validity of any supposed news on future products. Furthermore, Hines reiterated that if any announcement were true, it would come through official channels and not via email.
