OBLIV- wait, I'm not the p_dawg. Ehm.
If Skyrim came, I think it'd be the Special Edition that gets released on the 28th.
Unfortunately, that seems likely. Which is a shame, as no old mods will work with it until their authors convert them. IF they are still around, and feel like it. And neither will any exe-modifying utilities (does Skyrim need script extender for any serious scripting, like any other Bethesda titles before it? If yes, that will be serious blow to the SE). Basically it will be like entirely new game but with much less hype and smaller and less active modding community.
Of course that is the worst-case scenario, it could go much better too.
