They're probably cancelling it for current consoles and pushing it as a 2013 release with new consoles. The game looked great, but there's probably a lot more work to do, so at this point if it'll take them another year to finish, it would make sense for them to ride the wave of a console launch (plus PC sales) rather than limit the game to horribly aging tech.

Although that would be nice, I seriously doubt that's the case here. Updating the game for next-gen consoles would require a significant amount of time and resources, as the engine and assets would all need to be upgraded and/or redone. Also, I wouldn't expect new consoles until at least 2014.

More realistically, Bethesda cancelled the game because it wasn't making the progress they wanted. Probably a few missed milestones and/or had disagreements on the game's direction. When someone refuses to give a comment, it almost always means "yes." After all, if the game wasn't cancelled, why wouldn't Bethesda just confirm the fact? They'd have no reason to hide the fact that a game they've already announced is still in development.
