Sad news for adventurers in the frigid Northern regions of Tamriel, Bethesda just issued a massive arrow to the knee in the form of a blog post entitled “Moving to our next adventure”. The post let Skyrim fans know there will be no more DLC coming out for the massive game. Later Bethesda marketing VP Pete Hines underlined the announcement in a tweet.
The tone is bittersweet as the post hints at the next big project from the team:
“Skyrim has been a labor of love for us since we started designing it in 2006. We never imagined it would become the phenomenon it has. And that is because of you, the fans. It was all of you who made it a success. We can’t thank you enough for embracing the game, spreading the word, and making it your own.
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.”
I spent over 100 hours on this game and it’s still in rotation a year and a half later. But I feel like there’s still SO much left to do, especially with the addition of the DLC we did get. So, while I’m certainly bummed out about this announcement, I know my time with the game is far from over and the prospect of bigger and better game from the Bethesda team is really exciting. Let’s all hope for a big announcement soon!
Talos, hear my call. Bestow unto us Fallout 4!!
Fus Roh Dah!
