In a random, heart-breaking announcement a Bethesda marketing coordinator has confirmed that there will be no more DLC coming for Skyrim. The development team has officially moved on to their next project. This has left fans of the series greatly disappointed and wondering what the Bethesda team is working on now.
Since the game’s release in November of 2011 (just a year and a half ago) there have been a total of 3 DLC packs released: Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn. The only one that was of any real significance was Dragonborn. Hearthfire only added the ability for players to create their own house within Skyrim and Dawnguard was a short, yet entertaining, vampire-related quest line.
This news may not be as devastating to PC players as it is to Xbox 360 and PS3 gamers. There are, after all, countless mods for the game that are actually quite impressive available from the Steam community and other Elder Scrolls fan-sites.
The recent announcement does lead the mind to wonder about where the Elder Scrolls series will take us next. When will the next TES game be released? Who knows. But if history tells us anything, we can probably expect the next title to be released on next gen consoles. And even then it could be a while. All that’s left to fill the emptiness is hope that the Elder Scrolls Online (the PC-only, MMORPG version of the series) will succeed and fill the void.
