A reddit thread from a user claiming to offer “a look inside Bethesda” has been shut down by an official Bethesda developer, who took to the site to trash the claims as “a mixture of half-truths gleaned from interviews and outright falsehoods,” and to say it was “best to just move on.”
“We’re all excited for more news out of Skyrim,” wrote Bethesda’s Ricardo Gonzalez, “but let’s not take advantage of the community’s fervor to peddle silliness. Thanks, and have a good day.”
The original post, which has since been removed, claimed that a separate skill tree for spear use was on the way, with spears being introduced in an upcoming DLC. The upcoming DLC was part of two more planned expansions, each as big as the recently-released (for XBox 360 owners, anyway) Dragonborn DLC.
“Without giving a lot away, the next DLC will explore the beginnings of the Nords and Skyrim’s culture, as well as the Snow Elves and yes, even the Dwarves. The last DLC will involve the choosing of a new King of Skyrim and the war against the elves.”
But, since all that’s not true, there’s nothing to see here. Move along! Move along.
