Bethesda mistakenly states Skyrim is coming to next-gen consoles

Not that they couldn't do it though

Rumours have surfaced indicating that Bethesda may be preparing a next-gen version of their characteristically colossal RPG Skyrim.

Multiple reports found a listing for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of Skyrim on Bethesda's own website. All mention of the next-gen versions of Skyrim have since been purged from the Bethesda website but they were there long enough for a screen grab to be captured.

Bethesda's Pete Hines stated on Twitter that the listing was an error thrown up by maintenance being carried out on their CMS. He said, “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. “ Bethesda mistakenly states Skyrim is coming to next-gen consoles

A next-gen version of Skyrim would not be that much of a big leap for Bethesda to make given that the PC version has been up and running alongside the console versions and Bethesda has also released a hi-res texture pack for it on Steam as a free download.
