Elder Scrolls fans may be in luck now that a UK retailer has listed a The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Definitive Edition, possibly hinting at a current-gen remastered in the works.
The retailer in question, Base.com, also shows the release date for the pack as November 23, 2016. This is the same month as when Skyrim was originally released, when it came out on November 11, 2011 as a hope for good luck.
There’s been no inkling of a remastered edition of Skyrim from Bethesda, concerned as it is with keeping up with making Fallout 4 and keeping it running. The studio also recently started mod support for the game, which is not only available on PC but also now on consoles.
If there is a Skyrim Definitive Edition, it will likely be another smash hit for Bethesda, especially if they allow the same sort of modding capabilities that people can create. Skyrim has always been a very moddable game, and a large number of mods are available on it across the Internet.
Skyrim was also one of the most successful games of 2011, getting rave reviews and selling millions of copies. And that’s not even mentioning the success of the various DLC that came out with it.
Even though Base.com seems fairly certain that a Skyrim Definitive Edition will be coming, we’ll have no idea of if it will be coming. If it is something that’s coming out, we’ll likely see some sort of news about it at E3, and it will most likely be announced at the Bethesda press conference that will be coming shortly before the actual E3 event.
While I’m sure a lot of gamers would be extremely excited to have a current-gen version of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim on their consoles, we still should keep from getting too excited: remember, Bethesda hasn’t announced anything related to a Skyrim Definitive Edition.
