Bethesda re-releases its biggest hit, The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim, so often that the game publisher's zeal has even become a new meme among gamers. It seems that while there are still electronic devices in the world without Skyrim, Bethesda will not stop announcing new releases of its RPG. But kidding aside, Todd Howard finally revealed why his studio releases Skyrim with enviable regularity.
Todd Howard was invited to the Gamelab conference in Barcelona, where he received the title of "Legend of the gaming industry" and answered many questions from the organizer of the exhibition, Jeff Kayley.
According to Todd Howard, the reason the legendary 2011 game came out on PS4 and Xbox One over the past couple of years to have a separate version for Nintendo Switch and VR devices is because Skyrim is incredibly popular.
Until now, millions of players find something to do in the province of the Nords, shoot let-plays and joke videos. The game remains in the top sellers even after 7 years. Therefore, Bethesda is simply satisfying the demand and desire of gamers. Bethesda will only stop re-releasing The Elder Scrolls V when gamers simply stop releasing it. It's that simple.
Also, Todd Howard said that despite the tremendous success of other games of the studio, such as Fallout 4 and Fallout Shelter, the developers do not have enough resources to support them and release new unique content. For example, downloadable add-ons. At the same time, it is worth noting that projects like The Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield require significant cash infusions, therefore, buying the same re-releases of Skyrim, players finance new studio games.
Let us remind you that Fallout 76 will be released this year, which will be the next major game from Todd Howard's studio. The release of the multiplayer RPG is scheduled for November 14.
