Welp, that’s about as curt as you can get.
Betheseda’s head honcho Todd Howard had some choice words for fans tiring of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim ports: if you don’t want it, stop buying them.
As reported by GamesIndustry.biz, said message arrived from a conversation between him and The Game Awards’ Geoff Keighley, wherein Howard had this to say about Skyrim: “”Even now, the amount of people who play Skyrim seven years later; millions of people every month are playing that game,” Howard replied. “That’s why we keep releasing it. If you want us to stop releasing it, stop buying it.”
He isn’t wrong: the widely acclaimed open-world RPG keeps selling well after its 2011 launch, so why not capitalize upon it? With two separate ports released in the same month last year (Switch and PlayStation VR) and a VR-compatible PC port earlier this April, not even the advent of Elder Scrolls VI seems poised to halt the flood of Skyrim ports.
Will you stop buying Skyrim ports in protest, or have you simply not had enough of Betheseda’s 2011 classic? Let us know in the comments below!
