Bethesda confirms free upgrade plans when it brings PS4/Xbox One games to next-gen

Bethesda has confirmed that both The Elder Scrolls Online and DOOM Eternal are coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, with both games supporting free upgrade for those who upgrade their consoles to its next-generation counterpart. 

In addition to this, Bethesda is working to ensure that both DOOM Eternal and The Elder Scrolls Online will feature backwards compatibility on both next-generation consoles at launch. This move will ensure that both games can be played on next-generation systems before their updated version launch. 

Bethesda has committed to offering free upgrades whenever any of their current-generation games launch on next-generation systems. This means that if, or when, Skyrim Special Edition is updated for PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, the upgrade will be free to owners the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game respectively.

At this time, DOOM Eternal and The Elder Scrolls Online are the only games that are confirmed to be getting next-generation upgrades. Bethesda says that they "don't have any news to share just yet on our remaining catalogue of titles." Below is Bethesda's full statement regarding next-generation game upgrades. 
 

    The Elder Scrolls Online and DOOM Eternal are coming to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5!

Players who own or purchase either title on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade for free to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions, respectively, when those versions are available. Additionally, our teams are working hard to ensure both titles will support backwards compatibility when the new consoles launch.

We’ll have more information to share in the coming weeks and months about The Elder Scrolls Online and DOOM Eternal on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 including expected release windows and a list of enhancements. And while we don’t have any news to share just yet on our remaining catalogue of titles, we can confirm we are committed to offer free upgrades for current generation console owners of existing Bethesda titles we bring forward into the next generation of consoles.
