Skyrim VI: No More Fourth Skyrim DLC

This article first appeared here on 14th April 2013.

[dropcap]B[/dropcap]ethesda PR executive Pete Hines kyrim DLC tweet sparks a debate in Skyrim community.

No More Skyrim, It’s The Elder Scrolls VI

The more they don’t say “we’re done” the clearer it becomes that they are not done.

The closest thing we have to a no is when Pete in February said “people have been working on Skyrim for 4 years now so you get to the point where you kind of wanna work on the next thing.” (to paraphrase).

He then followed a comment about any more DLC with “we won’t talk about that”.

So here we are in April, still getting “we’ll announce something when we’re ready to announce something” which basically means there is something because there is no reason to not say they are done if they are.

We also doubt there will be another DLC for Skyrim simply due to the fact that The Witcher 3, the first truly open-world Witcher game, is coming out in 2014 and is going to be a direct competitor for the Elder Scrolls players.

We imagine that every resource Bethesda has is being dedicated to push out the next game to compete with that before they steal too many players away.

Supposedly the game is completely open world and literally dwarfs the size of Skyrim.

Bethesda should be focusing on making the new game for the next-gen consoles such as on PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 instead of creating more DLC for Skyrim.

Hopefully, we are going to see another patch with maybe a couple of little surprises but nothing like a major expansion.

    That’s not right so far all evidence points to them announcing another dlc after all if it follows the same pattern as other Bethesda games then we are due another dlc to be announced shortly

      Also it is too soon for a new elder scroll game

        I agree. It took them 5 years (2006-2011) to release Elder Scrolls V. It would seem that the new engines that are being developed for next-generation consoles are focusing on making development cycles faster however (see the tech-demo commentary for Unreal 4). Still, Bethesda has Fallout to work on also, and I believe we’ll probably see Fallout 4 before we even hear a peep about Elder Scrolls VI.

    Also I doubt Bethedsa is fearful of Witcher 3. Regardless of whether witcher is incredible or a disappointment, the elder scrolls has one of the most devoted followings in gaming, meaning its unlikely to shoe players away

    there are too many factors to suggest that they are not done with DLC content
    1. It’s way too early to announce a next TES game
    2. Elder Scrolls Online hasn’t been release yet so there is no numbers on decisions whether Bethesda should explore MMO options
    3. Redguard? Stros M’ kai? Akavir? Great War DLC? what is the official title of this “suppose” sleeper DLC that’s on it’s way to summer
    4. Bigger than Dragonborn DLC? how big can it get? nation wide? or Continent size?
    5. DLC releases i mean ever since Ps3 gotten their DLC’s it is very hard to renew faith into PS3 users for Bethesda Products so how are they going to exercise their DLC patterns

    like i said before THERE ARE TOO MANY FACTORS INVOLVED i could go on forever

    Exactly. See people who comment on this shit have a way better perspective than whoever wrote those cause I doubt we see an ES game announced for the new consoles this year. And its already been made known there are more things coming to Skyrim this year, at least one more because hearthfire isn’t considered a true DLC, and there’s bound to be 3 main ones. They won’t force a game just cause some stupid witcher 3 game no ones heard of made comments saying they think their games better. First of all, you better think your games the best, or that shows poor business, but calling out a major like Bethesda is dumb PR. Secondly, where the fuck is The Witcher 1 & 2? Hahaha exactly.

      Are you serious? Have you even played any of The Witcher games?? lol

      • B7882

        The threads not about the witcher, its about the elder scrolls. Why? Cause no one cares about the witcher in here. And no I haven’t played them, nor do I have a desire to, seeing as the first time I heard of any game called witcher was about 8 days ago when I commented on here

  • jaqen

    Will just buy witcher three & elder scrolls VI, nuff said.

    I want more to do with the Thalmor after the civil war quest line!
