Bethesda wraps up Skyrim development, “moving onto next adventure”

Skyrim

The team behind Skyrim have finally hung up their daedric armour, washing their hands of a development cycle that started way back in 2006. In a farewell post on the Bethesda blog, they thank all the players for their support and mention the need to move on.

“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.”

Could that new project be The Elder Scrolls: Arena? Well, probably not, but we’ll see.

probably for the best, the community patches the game better than they ever did anyway.

Getting kinda sick of games having such a small DLC life. If they want games to be a service, they should support it for a lot longer than they do. McDonalds is a service and they still have the original big mac. OK that’s a shit comparison, but you know what I’m getting at.

 

Sooo..No more DLC? I thought they had one left to release.
That sucks.

 

haven’t even caught up on the DLC still have alot of vanilla oblivion to go :S

Not really worried by this looking forward to the next single player TES

 

hopefully the next adventure isent as boring story wise ( dialog)

 

maybe its time for some new IP bethedsa

Fuck that, i’ll take a new elder scrolls or fall out game built for next consoles, etc. They had planned to wait for the next gen of consoles for skyrim but didn’t, i can’t wait to see what they do next! :D

 

Fallout 4 please and hurry up.

uhh… what? Skyrim’s DLC is “small” (life?)? What are you expecting, an entire game for $20?

Feel free to count the totals of each new feature/type. The fact that the game was released in 2011 and is still receiving DLC in 2013, I find your expectations ridiculous.

Hope they come back to Elder Scrolls soon, I want a new 300+ hour adventure :)

 

alterian,

Agreed. They put so much effort into the game world and back-story/lore and the main story was so uninspiring.
