Bethesda has taken to their official blog
to outline the end of development for the most recent Elder Scrolls title, Skyrim. The update details that all game content has now been finalised and completed, with a majority of the team moving onto Bethesda's next big project which has yet to be announced. While this means the end of game content development, the team will continue to address minor updates to Skyrim when necessary.
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.
We loved hearing your stories, your in-game triumphs, and your suggestions. One thing stuck out to us through those emails, letters, and postings. And that is – video games matter. They’re as important to you as they are to us. It’s not just about entertainment, it’s about your time. And you chose to spend it with our game.
Currently it isn't clear what exactly Bethesda are working on for their next big title, with a number of large IPs under their helm including Fallout and Elder Scrolls series. What is clear though is the teams at Bethesda are eager enough to support their titles through various means, which is great news for any fan.
