Skyrim Re-Releases: Bethesda Says “Stop buying it” If You Don’t Like It
It’s become a running joke within the gaming community that Bethesda has a hard time letting go one of their greatest achievements, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The title has seen a few re-releases since its initial launch 7 years ago, however fans may be exaggerating with claims that the title just won’t die. Bethesda even got in on the joke this year at E3 announcing the release of the open world adventure title on Alexa smart devices and smart refrigerators. While mostly joking, the title has seen a lot of love over the years and fans have started to question why? Thankfully, Bethesda’s very own Todd Howard has an answer.
While discussing the title in an interview, Howard explains that to this day there are millions of players who continue to adventure throughout the world of Tamriel every month. The internet would have you believe that the title is oversold and that nobody actually wants it but the numbers don’t lie. Because the title has amassed such a dedicated following of players who can and are still enjoying it, Bethesda has put in the time and money to make sure they can appease those fans, and make money from it of course (they are a business, after all). Howard puts it very blunt by saying, “That’s why we keep releasing it. If you want us to stop releasing it, stop buying it.” A simple but sound logic nonetheless.
