Project Described As "Our Biggest And Best Work Yet"
After the excellent Dragonborn DLC pack finally gave Skyrim an expansion worth shouting about, Bethesda have decided to stop supporting their epic RPG to concentrate on the next big thing.
“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," reads the latest Bethesda blog post. “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.”
Since the PC modding community will continue pumping out some excellent/hilarious content over the coming months, we'll still have plenty of new Skyrim mods to play, though it's a shame that we won't get to fully get our revenge on the Thalmor.
So, what exactly is their "next major project?" We reckon that the smart money's probably on Fallout 4, which is heavily tipped to be set in the Boston area, and features high-tech android lab 'The Institute' (formerly known as MIT). Naturally we'll keep you updated as we hear more.
