[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, a Bethesda representative confirmed with GameSpot that no new downloadable content for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is in the works.

"No, there will be no other DLC," the company said.

The original story follows below

Bethesda Game Studios is moving on from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, its award-winning 2011 role-playing game. In a blog post today, the developer said its next project is now at the point where it requires the studio's full attention, though the outfit promised it will continue to support Skyrim.

"Even though we're moving on, we'll still have minor updates to Skyrim as needed," the developer said. "We've invested so much of ourselves into Skyrim and will never truly say goodbye to it."

Since shipping Skyrim in November 2011, Bethesda has released three downloadable content expansions for the game (Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn) as well as Kinect support for the Xbox 360 version and the Creation Kit for the PC version.

No official details regarding Bethesda Game Studios' next project have been divulged, though a past report suggests a Boston-set Fallout 4 is in the works. In addition, Bethesda parent company Zenimax Media this month trademarked a new game called "Starfield," though the publisher has declined to comment on what this may be.

Bethesda said last week that it would make "considerably more noise" in 2013.
