Skyrim Dawnguard DLC Might Not Release for PS3

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim DawnguardThe long-awaited Dawnguard DLC still doesn’t have a release yet for PlayStation 3. On top of that, the next bit of DLC, Hearthfire, has already been announced.

Now we have a neatly worded announcement from Bethesda that says, “This is not a problem we’re positive we can solve..”

See the full quote:

“Earlier in the month, we provided an update on Dawnguard’s status for PS3.

It’s been a few weeks, and we wanted to make sure everyone knows where we’re at with Dawnguard. Skyrim is a massive and dynamic game that requires a lot of resources, and things get much more complex when you’re talking about sizable content like Dawnguard. We have tried a number of things, but none of them solve the issue enough to make Dawnguard good for everyone. The PS3 is a powerful system, and we’re working hard to deliver the content you guys want. Dawnguard is obviously not the only DLC we’ve been working on either, so the issues of adding content get even more complicated. This is not a problem we’re positive we can solve, but we are working together with Sony to try to bring you this content.

We wish we had a more definitive answer right now. We understand the frustration when the same content is not available on all platforms. When we have an update, we will certainly let you know. We deeply appreciate all the time and support you have given us, and we’ll keep doing our best to return that. “

Of course I had to bold the juicy bit.

It’s been a long, strange struggle for Skyrim‘s PS3 populace. At launch, the game was plagued with bugs that were patched.. with even more bugs. Then you have the staggered content patches and releases for all three systems with the PS3 version usually getting the later date.

At this point in time I really don’t expect a happy ending. Hope for success but brace yourself for disappointment, right?
