‘Skyrim’ not coming to PS4, Xbox One; website bug to blame for confusion

Despite what turned out to be false excitement, Bethesda will not in fact bring The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim to the next-gen consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, according to a report today from VG 24/7.

Skyrim had originally been reported to be heading to the PS4 and Xbox One when it was sighted on the Bethesda website saying as much.

However, Pete Hines, Bethesda vice president of public relations and marketing, took to Twitter to clear up any further confusion about the game, saying the mix up was due to an error with the studio’s website.

“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,” Hines said.

Speculation about the game was only fueled by a previous report from VG 24/7 in which the website said Bethesda had moved some of its core developers onto a new, unannounced project.

Skyrim dropped for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows PC in November 2011 and Legendary Editions of the game launched in June.
