Bethesda e-mail teases "special announcement" for January 12.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Update: Bethesda has confirmed this listing is simply an error, and that the e-mail teaser is nothing but “another fan hoax.”

Original: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. At least, that’s what Bethesda Softworks’ official website says.

On the game’s official page, the November 2011-released PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC open-world action RPG is listed for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One alongside the game’s previously released formats.

Then, there’s an e-mail, sent out to Bethesda Store subscribers, teasing a “special announcement” on the official Bethesda Softworks blog and website this coming Sunday, January 12.

Could the two be related?

    That’s the sound a cash cow makes.

    But really, who hasn’t played Skyrim at this point who wants to?

    • ABC

      Who hasn’t played Skyrim?
      Lets say that Skyrim sold 3 million on the 360 (not sure how many were sold). There was roughly 80 million 360 unit sold. About 77 million people who owns a 360 hasn’t played Skyrim yet.

      Me!!! No but seriously I had it on my PS3 and poured 50 hours into it and didn’t come anywhere near finishing it but had to stop playing it because it would freeze my system after 30 minutes to an hour of playing every time I played it. My system is 6 years old and I refuse to break this system to finish Skyrim so I would love to finish it on the PS4 if it works. Hell I’m just now playing TLoU and after like an hour or 2 my PS3 sounds like a damn jet engine and that scares me.

      • Audie Bakerson

        Don’t worry! Even with fan-patches the PC version crashes every 30-60 mins too!

        • Bryce Blalex Douglas

          We hate EA for releasing broken unfinished games but give Bethesda GOTY for doing the same thing. I shake my head at this industry sometimes.

          • Unretributed

            EA is actually facing a lawsuit for releasing a buggy BF4.

            So if EA is sued for BF4 what’re the courts gonna do to Bethesda for their glitch crimes!? Execute them?
            Because by comparison, Bethesda games run 2x worse than BF4 on all platforms.

          • Elvick

            People’s bias toward Bethesda is ridiculous.

            Yes, big games are hard to test and fix 100% of everything… but they always have a lot of issues that shouldn’t be there.

      • artemisthemp

        Did you disable Auto-save function?

        • Bryce Blalex Douglas

          I didn’t and I already sold the game so I can’t even check to see if that would’ve helped :(

  • Nhiroz

    I would buy it haha :-)

  • Vernauth

    why not in vita?

    • Warboss Aohd

      is the Vita more powerful than PS3? if not, that’s why.

      Skyrim is sodding HUGE.

      Edit: oh yeah, the Vita has that thing where it lets you play PS3 games on it doesn’t it?

      ………..i guess you already CAN play Skyrim on Vita.

      • Shauneepeak

        Vita actually has a lot more RAM than the PS3, but yeah other area’s it is a good deal weaker but a full working version of Borderlands 2 is being ported to Vita so it might be possible.

    • ExTrooperBrenTurner

      “PlayStation Now”.

  • Budgiecat

    more ports better played on a PC due to mods….

    • Raiu

      Better yet, just play Bethesda games on PC. Period.

      Who knows? Someone in the modding scene might come up with fixes whenever Bethesda games have problems…

      • Audie Bakerson

        Actually, some of the worst parts of Bethesda games tend to be the hardcoded ones mods can’t touch. Even lumping off parts that you can get at (HP bloat, kill cam that prevents block/dodge) do little to touch what you can’t (stupid enemies who are, at the same time, inhumanly accurate with ranged attacks no matter how fast or erratic their target moves, is just one of the most basic ones).

        At least when OpenMW comes along, Morrowind can finally be free of those bits.

        • Raiu

          At least some problems can be fixed like what the unofficial patch did for Skyrim ….

          OpenWM? Oh… I should try when I try Morrowind someday…

    • DarthNemesis

      better played on PS with the DS over a crappy PC controller on k/b.No one cares about mods outside of the PC nerd culture.

      • Sevyne

        I primarily play on console and I care about mods. You can not say that modding all of Morrowind through Skyrim isn’t fantastic.

      • artemisthemp

        Doesn’t the DS4 work on a PC?

      • Jahla Din

        Having gone through 6 controllers made for the PC over 1 year, yeah I agree they suck.

        So that’s why you just take your Xbox or PS controller and use it on your PC.

  • Raiu

    No… Just no, Bethesda….

    Make it $60 and people will walk away…

  • bloodiOS

    Unless it’s something like Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, instead of a simple PC port, I’m not seeing myself getting it. Also, the 8th-gen versions better be bug-free…

    EDIT: Heh, so it was fake. Well, nothing of value was lost.

  • oOqUiS

    Been holding of playing this game coz i’m waiting for oculus rift. But if this is the case i might get it for next-gen.

  • Audie Bakerson

    And what are the chances of them fixing major bugs that are present in all version for this new version?

    My expert opinion: Between ziltch and nada.

  • badmoogle

    Meh.Next gen or not the game will still have terrible combat (my main problem with ES games).It will just run better and look prettier.

    • Audie Bakerson

      Knowing Bethesda, not even that.

    • 罪罰

      whack a mole gameplay

      • badmoogle

        Seriously after being spoiled by the combat of games like Dragon’s Dogma and the Souls series i simply can’t stand the combat in ES anymore.Which is a shame because i really liked the environments and exploration in Skyrim but eventually the clunky and overly simplistic combat made me give up on the game.
        Hopefully they will raise the quality of the combat significantly in the next instalment.

      Already been updated.

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    Its super obvious that The Elder Scrolls Online abd Fallout 4 will be buggy as hell.
    Why are people so blind to accept this. ITS UNACCEPTABLE.

    I dont buy Bugthesda games cause of this crap.

  • tokyobassist

    I was about to say…for love of god enough ports. Announce some new stuff or at least bring out some games that people have been asking about like Dark Souls II or The Last of Us. I’ve seen quite a few people wanting to see those.
