Bethesda Ending Development on Skyrim

It had to happen one day and unfortunately the time is now. Bethesda Studios will no longer be making new content for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Announcing the news today via their blog, Bethesda have decided they need to concentrate on other projects and can no longer be spending time working on Skyrim.

“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.”

They will still provide minor updates for the game, but any more add-ons or big overhauls are a thing of the past. Having already produced Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn, it is no surprise Bethesda feel they have achieved everything they set out to do with the project. With the next generation looming it makes sense to get everyone working on the next project which will surely be their biggest yet.

Skyrim, you are one hell of a game and will still be played long after Bethesda stops releasing content.
