Skyrim Isn't Confirmed For Nintendo Switch Despite Being In The Reveal Trailer

switch-2-eb941e25-17a5-417d-b2df-90e777457741So, we are now in the aftermath of the Nintendo Switch, where news, editorials and details will be trickling out as the world tries to decipher all it can about Nintendo's new hardware. However, here is one bit I didn't expect to hear.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, presumably the upcoming remaster, was a big part of the reveal video, but weirdly it seems that it isn't confirmed for the system. A Bethesda spokesperson told, that while they enjoyed working with Nintendo on the video, it doesn't mean the game is confirmed for the system.

We're happy to have had the opportunity to collaborate with Nintendo on the video. While we are not confirming any specific titles at this time, we are pleased to announce our partnership with Nintendo and support of the Switch. We look forward to revealing specific games and details in the future.


My guess is that this is just legalese with the company, for what ever reason, not ready to fully announce it. However, it is possible the video was just a proof of concept and Nintendo just asked a few third parties for game footage to showcase the tech. That would be weird, but hey, if Bethesda aren't saying yes, then I guess this isn't confirmed.
