Ominous news, Skyrim fans: A Polygon interview with Bethesda’s Todd Howard has muddied the waters as to which version of the game Nintendo fans will be playing on their shiny new Switches later this year.

When asked specifically about future projects, Howard remained tight-lipped, adding that he “can’t say” whether the Switch port of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be the 2011 original or the 2016 “Special Edition” remaster.

While it’s entirely possible this statement was simply made to curb a more exciting reveal somewhere down the line, it surely doesn’t ooze confidence for fans hoping to play the superior version on the go.

Hopefully we’ll get a more clear picture in the coming weeks and months as the game’s Fall release date rapidly approaches.
