The remastered version of The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, recently announced at E3 2016 and coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 28th will not feature cross-platform transfer saves, says Peter Hines – Vice President of Public Relations at Bethesda.
Since its release back in November 2011 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC, players have clocked up hundreds of hours exploring dungeons, cities, fortresses and villages throughout the land of Skyrim, the fifth installment in the popular Elder Scrolls series but will not be able to use any save points associated with the previous generation consoles when The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim: Special Edition launches later this year.
Speaking on Twitter, Hines, who represents the PR side of Bethesda responded to a question regarding the possibility of players being able to use previous save points from both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
