Farewell, Dovahkiin

With hundreds of hours already on offer, Bethesda has ruled out the possibility of any further The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim content. Writing on its official blog, the company revealed that it's leaving behind the snowy peaks of Hrothgar in favour of its (hopefully warmer) next big adventure.

"Skyrim has been a labour of love for us since we started designing it in 2006,” the studio explained. “We never imagined that it would become the phenomenon that it has. And that is because of you, the fans. It was all of you who made it a success. We can’t thank you enough for embracing the game, spreading the word, and making it your own.”

The developer continued that while a chunk of the outfit has been committed to DLC and updates for the 2011 release, it’s also been quietly working on its next major project behind the scenes. “That game is at the point where it requires the studio’s full attention to make it our biggest and best work yet,” the outfit added. “We look forward to sharing our next adventure with you.”

According to the blog post, Skyrim will still receive "minor updates [...] as needed". Other than that, though, it's all hands on deck for the next big thing. Who’s ready for Fallout 4, then?
