UPDATE: Looks like the listing was just a “bug” in Bethesda’s website software. You can read the Tweet from Pete Hine below. The email was also faked. Sad day.
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.

Could Skyrim be making its way to next-gen systems?
An email sent out earlier today may indicate Bethesda will be announcing this on the 12th of January. Along with the email, the Bethesda website lists Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game on its product listing. One thing of note with the product listing is that the versions of the game that have already been released, such as the Xbox 360 version are highlighted with a link, while the next-gen versions are not, yet.
It seems odd that Bethesda would be updating the game for next-gen consoles due to its age, but I suppose it’s not out of the question as Tomb Raider is doing the same thing.
You can see the email along with the product listing just below. Click on the images to expand them.
Redditors are confirming they got the email so this seems pretty legit.
