No Xbox One Or PlayStation 4 Until 2014, Skyrim Chief Says

There will be no PlayStation 4 or Xbox One launch before 2014 the director of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Todd Howard has claimed.

In an interview with PSM3 magazine Howard claimed that at present, consumers were ‘very happy’ with their gaming hardware and there was no need to launch new models this early.

“I think it's going to be a while still, I really do. I think consumers are happy with the current ones, there's a lot you can do with them. So I don't think it's coming next year or the year after," Howard said during the interview.

He also confirmed that Bethesda was planning to release the highly anticipated Skyrim game for the rumoured next generation consoles from Microsoft and Sony. Howard said that the talks about moving the game to next gen consoles were ‘very serious’.

Rumours about the next generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft have been doing rounds for quite some time now, with rival Nintendo planning to unleash the recently unveiled Wii U console next year.

Some of the latest bits and pieces of information about the consoles circulating right now, include hardware giant AMD revealing that Microsoft’s next gen console will render graphics equivalent to James Cameron’s mega blockbuster Avatar.
