No More Major Work to be Done on Skyrim

Moving on, but not forgetting either.

Well, since we're on the topic of Bethesda, I suppose that I might as well close the week out with a small piece of bittersweet news: they've recently announced that they're pretty much done with Skyrim which isn't too surprising, all things considered.

"Skyrim has been a labor of love for us since we started designing it in 2006. We never imagined it would become the phenomenon 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.

"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."

How many minor things that may come up is somewhat of a subject of interest at this point. I suppose that there could be some minor bugs and things that need to be ironed out, even after all this time. Still, it seems that maybe aside from a tweak here and poke there that there isn't going to be that much more to do with the game. Perhaps that's indeed the point, after all.

I'm guessing that at least some of the work is going to places like The Elder Scrolls Online, and that perhaps, just perhaps, there might be a group working on the next Fallout offering, which would be amazing and great.

Of course, just because Bethesda is done with Skyrim doesn't mean that the community is done with it by any stretch. I doubt that modding will cease for many, many years to come. And on that note, since it's been a long week and I could you a laugh (and think that may you people could as well) I leave you with this, a magnum opus of the modding community:

Have a good weekend folks.
