No more DLC For Skyrim

If you were hoping more DLC for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was still on the way, you're out of luck; Bethesda has announced only "minor updates" will be provided in the future as the studio ramps up production on its next project.

In a post on the Bethblog, the company explains that its next major project is ready to make the leap from pre-production to a state where it'll require a lot more hands.

“Even though we’re moving on, we’ll still have minor updates to Skyrim as needed. 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," it explains.

"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."

So what do you reckon? Is Fallout 4 full-steam ahead, or could this morning's news about The Elder Scrolls: Arena point to a next-generation Elder Scrolls game about to go into full development?


I was really bummed about this news. Both Fallout 3 and New Vegas had five DLC, and none of them were throw-away build-your-own Malibu Dreamhouse BS. RIP SKYRIM

What were your favorite Skyrim glitches, ONTD?

Awww. The main quest line is very short and kind of unfulfilling (ha ha, turns out they're BOTH evil! Ha!). I was kept busy with sidequests.

Also icon love, Sailor Pluto is my HBIC <3

Sailor Pluto = my everything. Username namesake, internet moniker namesake, reason that I will teach my children, if I have them, that Pluto IS a planet and anyone who says otherwise is wrong, etc.

Right? My heart was bleeding when they pulled that shit. Um, excuse you, PLUTO HAS TO BE A PLANET, because my world will collapse if Sailor Pluto does not exist!!!

There's apparently an injoke amongst the fandom that Neo-Queen Serenity will reinstate Pluto as a planet when she takes power.

It pleases me.
