Bethesda Game Studios has announced it is moving on from Skyrim to work to its full capacity on its next major project.

This means there will be no further DLC coming to Skyrim.

"Skyrim has been a labour of love for us since we started designing it in 2006. We never imagined it would become the phenomenon it has," a letter from Bethesda Game Studios reads. "And that is because of you, the fans. It was all of you who made it a success. We can't thank you enough for embracing the game, spreading the word, and making it your own.

"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."

You can expect "minor updates to Skyrim as needed".

The letter concluded: "Thank you again for all your support. We hope you stay engaged in the gaming community here and elsewhere. Keep spreading the word. Games are the world's best entertainment because they can do what other forms cannot – fill you with the wonder of exploration and the pride of accomplishment. We look forward to sharing our next adventure with you." Analysis

Bethesda Game Studios is yet to announce the identity of its new game, but Fallout 4 or a new entry in the Elder Scrolls franchise for next generation systems seem most likely.

Seconded Clockey - always felt like there was one more proper piece of DLC on its way and I guess this means they've finished it now!

I'd LOVE Fallout 4, but ESVI would be great too. Either way, shut up and take my money.

Hmmm... I thought it had been strongly hinted that there was one more BIG piece of DLC coming, that ventured outside of Skyrim...?! Perhaps that might be a 'surprise' release, that development has already finished on (given the wording of the press release...)
