With Fallout 4 now less than a week before it is released for the Xbox One and other platforms, we are learning more about the post-apocalypse RPG's development by Bethesda Game Studios. One very cool thing about its history was that the team started work by porting their last game, the open-world fantasy RPG The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, so it would run on Microsoft's console.

This revelation comes from Game Informer's Andrew Reiner, who wrote:

"When I visited Bethesda Game Studios last month, Todd Howard and other key members from the development team walked me through Fallout 4's creation. Early on in our talks, Howard smiled at me and said, "The first thing we did was port Skyrim to Xbox One." After a brief pause, he quickly blurted out, "Don't get your hopes up yet."

"This was strictly an exercise that allowed the team to understand the new hardware faster. Although Howard implied there's a chance of Skyrim coming to Xbox One with his "yet," I was led to believe there wasn't anything brewing at the moment."

Would you buy an Xbox One native version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, even at this late date? Let us know in the comments!
