Pete Hines has responded to a rumor suggesting that “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” will be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One. According to a report from Metro on Jan. 9, the vice president of public relations at Bethesda Softworks disclosed that the website listing was done in error.

The company was apparently working on the CMS element of the page, which caused a glitch that ended up displaying non-existent platforms for several video games. In this case, “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” was listed for the PS4 and Xbox One. He went on to apologize to fans for the confusion. You can find some screens of the open-world role-playing game in the slideshow to the left of this article and Pete Hines' comments below:

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.

“The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” was released for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 several years ago on Nov. 11, 2011. The console version of the sequel, especially on Sony’s current-generation console, suffered from numerous technical issues. One of the problems may have been due to the limited system RAM.

The PS4 and Xbox One system both came with 8 GB of RAM, which would theoretically eliminate much of the issues with “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” on consoles. However, it looks like Bethesda Softworks currently has no plans to port the software product to the next-generation systems.

You can order the consoles from Amazon in the following links: PS4 and Xbox One.
