In what could be seen as a bit of a surprise announcement; Bethesda has revealed that it will not be releasing any new content for Skyrim as it requires the full staff contingency to work on their current project.
According to a post on the official Bethesda blog
For the last year and a half we’ve been working on new content for Skyrim; from the game updates, Creation Kit, Steam Workshop, Kinect support, to DLCs. Parts of our team have also been in pre-production on our next major project, and that game is at the point where it requires the studio’s full attention to make it our biggest and best work yet.
They do go no to say that they will still release minor updates as required but if you were holding out for the next big release then I’m sorry to say it isn’t going to happen.
Strangely some of the comments on the blog are very negative
Not cool bethesda not cool at all. Total slap in the face if you ask me kind of disingenuous on your guys part. Well say goodbye to my money cause you guys aint getting it anymore. Cant treat fans like this and expect them to stay not cool
Skyrim was released in 2011 and has received 3 full DLC packs since then. I don’t really see how they are slapping anyone in the face by announcing they are now focussing full time on their next big project but I guess you can’t please all the people all the time.
The next project is strongly rumoured to be Fallout 4 and I’m sure we will hear a lot more about it at E3 this year.
Do you think Bethesda has given this title enough support or were you also expecting a 4th and final DLC release before the game was put out to pasture?
