Bethesda To Leave Skyrim, But Willing To Pay Child Support
Bethesda is leaving Skyrim; they have revealed today that they are done creating new content for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, in favor of working on a new project. This makes Skyrim’s 1.9 patch the last piece of content that will be released for the game. It’s not exactly going out with a bang, but it added even more longevity to a game which already just doesn’t end. When going over the reasoning behind this decision to stop developing new content for Skyrim, Bethesda’s blog states that “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.” It’s clear that Bethesda is working on something big. The question on the tips of everyone’s tongue, however is “What is on the horizon?” Will it be a new Elder Scrolls? Will it be a new Fallout? Or will it be something new entirely? Only the future knows.
Rest assured, however that Bethesda has no intention of allowing their game to decay in the back burner for the rest of time, as they still have a team of programmers armed with fly swatters to maintain Skyrim in all of it’s glory. And remember, Bethesda loves you and is very happy that you have all wasted innumerable hours, chained in front of their beautiful cave(s).
