Bethesda Will Continue To Make Skyrim Ports As “Millions of People” Are Still Playing It
The Elders Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the most popular titles of Bethesda, so much so that even the company during the E3 2018 joked about being able to play it in a fridge. On the other hand, and although it seemed incredible, the company has ported it to Alexa, the Amazon device with which you can play Skyrim.
The game went on sale in November 2011 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. In all these years, almost 7, a compilation (Legendary Edition) have been released that includes the game and its expansions, as well as multiple ports to make it compatible with the current generation of consoles, ie PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Will they stop doing Skyrim ports in Bethesda? Todd Howard, the director of the game, has been clear: no. But not because they do not want to, but because as long as there are people who spend their money on a new conversion of Skyrim, they will continue to offer it to their fans.
During the Gamelab, Todd Howard explained that the real reason why the ports are launched is because every day millions of people are still playing their title: “Even now, the amount of people who play Skyrim seven years later; millions of people every month are playing that game. That’s why we keep releasing it. If you want us to stop releasing it, stop buying it.” And during the talk he continued: “Every year there’s a new idea we can’t do, and a new technology for something that excites us.”
So you gamers know, if you want Bethesda Game Studios to stop launching versions of Skyrim for all platforms, pay attention to its director and stop buying it, if that is possible.
