Skyrim concludes production with 'minor updates' as needed
Bethesda Softworks stated this morning it's "moving on" from Skyrim, which it began working on back in 2006. The developer will continue to provide "minor updates to Skyrim as needed," but don't expect any more official downloadable content.

Skyrim produced three pieces of major DLC: the vampiric Dawnguard, homey Hearthfire and the best-reviewed expansion, Dragonborn. The last included Solstheim, an entirely new region imbued with Lovecraftian tones.

"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," reads a statement on the company's website.

Fallout 4 is expected "before 2018."
