Skyrim will no longer be receiving additional content as developer Bethesda announced they are moving on from the game.

The developer will be providing minor updates to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as needed but will not continue with more downloadable content for the game.

Bethesda said the development team will now focus on their next project. Previously, the next Bethesda game was in pre-production but it has reached a point that requires the full attention of the developer.

Work began on Skyrim in 2006. The company released three expansions for the latest installment of The Elder Scrolls series, including Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn.

The team has been working on DLC, game updates, Creation Kit, Steam Workshop and Kinect support for Skyrim for the last year and a half, according to a post on the official company blog.

Although Bethesda has yet to officially announce the next project referred to in their statement, it is widely expected to be Fallout 4. The developer previously stated they want to make more than just one entry into the Fallout series and expects a release by 2018 or earlier.

Fallout 3, which was widely popular amongst gamers, is the only game in the series developed by Bethesda. Fallout: New Vegas, which came out after Fallout 3, was made by Obsidian.
