In a petition formed late last year, fans of Shirley came together to get Bethesda to put Skyrim Grandma in the sequel. It looks like it worked because Bethesda heard them loud and clear and announced that Shirley would be in the sequel, with her likeness included through motion capture. The news was revealed at the Bethesda PAX East panel.
According to the video embedded at the top, Shirley Curry’s likeness was scanned through photogrammetry technology, which can take scans of real-life objects and turns those scans into highly detailed models of the object scanned.
Skyrim Grandma streams Let’s Plays of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and currently has 493,000 subscribers.
