The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has made the Elder Scrolls series one of the most popular game series on the planet. The Elder Scrolls was always pretty successful RPG game since the first was released in 1994. Ever since then it grew in popularity as the series progressed: Arena, DaggerFall, Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim.
Skyrim was the most successful in the series, reviving interest in many of the older games as Gamers looked to trace the history of the Elder Scrolls series. However, Skyrim’s time is now up as Bethesda is looking to move on and focus more-or-less exclusively on their next project. Bethesda claims to be moving on to make their “biggest and best work yet” and this means no more DLC or major updates for Skyrim. Bethesda did say small updates here and there would arrive but these will probably be reserved to minor bug fixes and so on.
Since Skyrim was release in late 2011 it has been received incredibly well and sold very well. The most recent sales figures, for July 2012, suggested 10 million sales while the game has dominated the Steam most played list now for quite some time.
