Will Skyrim Receive a “Game of the Year” Edition?

From it’s release in November 2011 to today, millions have conquered countless quests and slain many a dragon in Skyrim. Nearly perfect scores across the board made it one of the most successful releases of that year, with 7 million copies sold in its first week of release. With the addition of three DLC packs, fans around the world were thrilled to see their gameplay expanded.

So it goes without saying that there is a good possibility of a Game of the Year edition of Skyrim at same point. Those rumors have heightened with listings already being announced on multiple retailer sites in Europe, including Amazon France. This coming June is the suggested release date for the title, which is said to include all three DLC expansions: Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn. Fans have hit the internet for a concrete source on the release, especially for a North American release.

[adsense250itp]But is it ever worth it for a game developer and/or company to re-release a game? Many argue that with so much time having passed, a Game of the Year edition never does well. It only appeals to gamers that have not played the game yet, which for Skyrim, couldn’t be many by now. It’s seen more as a waste to die hard fans that bought each DLC separately, only to be disappointed to see the same game released again with everything from the get go, and often at a cheaper price.

With this in mind, how will a Skyrim Game of the Year edition fare? Well, with so many scrambling the internet for answers to that very question, it is hard to argue it will not sell. It will certainly give any new PS3, 360 or PC owners the chance to play one of the best games to hit the scene. It adds another piece to many hardcore fan’s collection of Skyrim memorabilia.

Just recently, Bethesda made an announcement on their website that they will stop further development on Skyrim. “Even though we’re moving on, we’ll still have minor updates to Skyrim as needed. We’ve invested so much of ourselves into Skyrim and will never truly say goodbye to it.” Bethesda promises to continue updating the technical side to the game, however no new material will be added, mentioning a new project already underway. The Evil Within has already been announced so could a possible Fallout 4 be in the making? Well, that’s for another day.
