The team behind The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim have announced it’s moving onto working on a new game thus effectively sealing the fate of future Skyrim DLC.
“For the last year and a half we’ve been working on new content for Skyrim;” writes the team behind the 2011 hit on the Bethesda Blog, “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.”
Given just how big a game Skyrim is, it’s very likely that this will be it for the game. The team will no doubt have all eyes set on whatever it is they’ll be developing next. Whilst the team doesn’t say it, this looks like it is indeed the end.
