Bethesda hasn’t started work, decided on next Skyrim DLC

Bethesda has said it hasn’t started on the next round of content for Skyrim yet, because it hasn’t decided what it will include just yet.

Speaking with Mark “Warbird” DeSanto, Skyrim lead artist Matt Carofano said the firm is completely focused on Dawnguard for the moment, which launched on Xbox 360 today.

Everyone is working on [Dawnguard],” he said. “Once it’s out we’ll see how it goes and see what could happen in the future.

“We want to expand and add to the game to make it better, and Vampires were something that we really hadn’t told a good story with — hadn’t really developed much — so we wanted to focus the DLC on that [and let people] play the game differently.”

While the developers have said previously the content would add around 20 hours to the game, Carofano likened it to the size and content scope of a faction quest.

“If you decide to help the Vampires you can end the tyranny of the sun — you know, block out the sun — so they can come out at night and be more powerful,” he said. “Or you can join the Dawnguard and become a vampire hunter.

“You’ll be able to build up the vampire hunters’ base as you recruit new members, build crossbrows, and even get an armored troll to come along with you to fight against the vampires.”

Dawnguard will release on PC and SP3 once the exclusivity period on Xbox 360 ends.
