Apparently Skyrim’s Dawnguard DLC might not make it to the PlayStation 3 at all.
In a statement posted to on the Bethesda forum, the developer admitted that Dawnguard – and potentially, future DLC packs – might not ever make it to the PS3, although they will continue to try.
“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.”
I have to admit I am slightly irate at this news. As a huge fan of the Elder Scrolls series and someone who was singing and dancing about Skyrim months before it came out I feel this is a little unfair.
Even if it’s not fully confirmed that the DLC won’t arrive on PS3, I don’t see why I should be in question after dedicating so many hours to their product. I also don’t feel like I should be forced to purchase the Xbox 360 or PC version just to play the DLC for a game I already own. I love Bethesda, but this news really does upset me.
Thank god for Guild Wars 2.
