Bethesda done with Skyrim DLC, fully committed to “next major project”

Bethesda Game Studios are finally done developing add-on content for Skyrim, and from here on out will focus entirely on an ambiguous new project, one that could perhaps be the next entry in the Elder Scrolls or Fallout franchises.

In an official blog post, the team gave a sentimental statement wherein they showed their appreciation for their fans’ continued love and support of the their work. However, arguably most interesting was the mention of a new focus for the developer, a “major new project” that would be their “biggest and best work yet”:

For the last year and a half we’ve been working on new content for Skyrim… 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 Vice President Pete Hines later sent out a tweet, confirming the notion that no more Skyrim content would be developed:

What exactly this ‘new project’ is will be left to speculation. Another entry in the Elder Scrolls series is an easy first guess, but it could also be another Fallout game, or perhaps an entirely new IP altogether. Just know that’s it ‘major’, as should be pretty obvious due to requiring the entire team’s efforts, and that a next-gen release seems likely at this point.

Of course, this also means that previously rumored add-ons for Skyrim, such as the Redguard expansion, will never happen. Take that as you will.

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Published

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
