There will be no further Skyrim downloadable content, Bethesda has confirmed.

In a note on its official blog, the studio announced that it was moving on to its next major project.

Skyrim has been a labor of love for us since we started designing it in 2006,” read the post.

“We never imagined it would become the phenomenon it has. 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.”

Three pieces of campaign DLC were produced for the 2011 RPG: Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.

The studio would still make minor updates to Skyrim as needed, it added.

Its next major project is widely expected to be Fallout 4.

In related news, Bethesda vice president Pete Hines has told Destructoid that gaming’s second hand market is “a concern”.

“We have tried to mitigate it by creating games that offer replayability, by supporting them with DLC that’s worth hanging onto the game for, or offering tools that let them take things further,” he said.

“I’m not sure anyone has figured out a solution that works for everyone, and there simply may not be one until someone figures out how to include developers and publishers in the loop on used games sales instead of keeping it all for themselves.”
