In a blog post today, Bethesda’s Skyrim team indicates that they’re putting Skyrim to bed…
“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.
“Even though we’re moving on, we’ll still have minor updates to Skyrim as needed. We’ve invested so much of ourselves into Skyrim and will never truly say goodbye to it.”
While this is likely disappointing news for many, as only the Dragonborn DLC felt like a true expansion to the original game, with the release of the Elder Scrolls MMO rapidly approaching, it sounds as though Bethesda is focusing more on it than Skyrim. Which is understandable.
