Update: Just like all the Fallout 4 news, Bethesda has confirmed that there is no Skyrim coming for next-gen consoles and the listing on Bethesda’s website was just a server error. Pete Hines, the PR and marketing vice president at Bethesda confirmed that the company is not working on anything relating to Skyrim to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at the moment.
Hines made a tweet confirming that the next-gen listing on Bethesda’s website was only an error and the bug was fixed soon after it came into the management’s notice. “We have been working on the CMS that runs our sites,” Hines said on twitter. “A bug caused platforms that don’t exist to show up for some games Sorry for confusion.”
Talking about the reported emails that were sent to Bethesda community members, Hines said that the company has nothing to do with it, the emails were just a “fan hoax” by someone who tried to toy with the emotions of Bathesda’s fans. There would be no announcement on January 12th.
