Skyrim Not Coming To PS4, Xbox One [Update]
Update: Sorry guys, seems like the entire thing was a fault on Bethesda’s CMS system, which incorrectly listed the games for the next-gen consoles. Bethesda’s VP confirmed this on Twitter yesterday.
At present we’ve got plenty of cross-generational games which are releasing on both the current-gen gen of consoles and the previous generation. By that I mean Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3. That’s to be expected given that the new generation has just begun and we’re in a transitional period.

Then you get games such as Tomb Raider which released right at the beginning of 2013 but is still getting ported to X1 and PS4. That seems unnecessary but have at it Square Enix. What really does seem a waste of time is bringing a game that’s over two years old to the latest console generation.
According to Bethesda’s official site, Skyrim is now listed for PS4 and Xbox One in addition to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. It may be an error or the info may have gone up on the site ahead of an official announcement. Bethesda has revealed that they’ve got something exciting to reveal on 14 Jan. It would be a little disappointing if it’s a port of Skyrim and not something like Fallout 4.
The core Bethesda team is currently working on a secret project so it’s possible that a side team was working on bringing Skyrim to PS4 and X1. It’s not inconceivable as the PC version is still selling in appreciable numbers although a good part of those sales may be down to Steam sales. Should the game be ported, it will be the superior PC version that gets ported, just as was the case with Tomb Raider.
