Bethesda Dev Thinks We'll Still Be Playing 'Skyrim' Ten Years From Now

In case you’ve missed the occasion, Skyrim turned 10 on November 11. Time is wild right? It just keeps on moving. And even though the game is a decade old, it continues to shape many new gamers on the scene, and experienced gamers keep coming back to it. It’s rare that a release can make such an impact on the industry, and although it’s a decade old, Bethesda thinks that people are going to be playing Skyrim for another decade. 


In an interview with GamesRadar, Mark Lampert, Skyrim’s audio director has said that he thinks as long as the game is playable, people will be playing Skyrim. And he even compares the game to Chess.

Here are some of our favourite Skyrim wins and fails...



Lampert says that people keep coming back to the fantasy RPG because “of its timeless game design” in the same way that Chess is “solid, timeless” and “good”. He says: “There's something very compelling about it every time you jump in.” And that’s true, there isn’t anything we can say to argue against how good Skyrim is, especially when we’ve recently reminisced about the game’s impact on the GAMINGbible team

The audio director goes on to say, “10 years from now, if Skyrim is still playable, then people will still be playing it. And of course it will be, it's on everything. By then, we'll be playing on screens, your refrigerator, your Tesla on your commute. And it'll make you late for work." Imagine that, a twenty year old Skyrim still being as popular as today. Well we’re not entirely sure when The Elder Scrolls VI is going to launch so we might have to make do with the most recent exploration of Bethesda’s world for a long time to come anyway.
