The Bethesda team members behind Skyrim have moved on to the company’s next major project,” which means the end of post-launch content for the game.
A blog post from the game’s development team revealed that a portion of the studio had already moved on to pre-production for the unannounced title – adding that the rest of the staff is now joining them as well.
"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."
Bethesda VP Pete Hines confirmed that the farewell post meant no more DLC releases for the game.
For those asking, yes, today’s thanks/farewell Skyrim post does mean there is no more DLC coming,” Hines said on Twitter.
Skyrim launched in late 2011 on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, with three add-ons turbulently releasing across the platforms after.
