Fallout 4, Bethesda’s latest entry in the Fallout series, is slated to receive an upcoming story-centric expansion this August. Revealed at E3, the Nuka World DLC features a slew of new quests and weaponry, as well as new enemies and an entirely unseen area containing the titular amusement park.
However, Bethesda’s Vice President of PR and Marketing, Pete Hines, has taken to Twitter to address a common question in the Fallout community: “Will there be more DLC?”
Unfortunately, the simple answer is “no.”

It seems that Fallout 4 will have run its course as of this August. With two other major expansions, Automatron and Far Harbor, the game is not necessarily lacking support, but a cycle of content lasting a mere nine months is slightly disappointing.
On the bright side, however, Bethesda is by no means slowing down in their game production. Hines also confirmed a statement by Bethesda director Todd Howard that other projects are in the works. Speaking with IGN, Hines mentioned that Howard has at least two main projects being worked on, and they’re not just DLC. He described them as titles rivaling the scope and effort of an Elder Scrolls or Fallout title, though no concrete details about the setting were provided.
Thankfully, Bethesda fans will have many upcoming games to tide them over, such as Dishonored 2, Prey, and Elder Scrolls Legends.
Fallout 4: Nuka World releases in August 2016 on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
