In a not so surprising turn of events, it seems as if PS3 owners will have to wait even longer before playing the Dawnguard and Hearthfire expansions for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Today, Skyrim developer Bethesda announced on their official blog that they are skipping over the Dawnguard and Hearthfire expansions for PS3 temporarily.
Instead, they are turning their attention to developing the newest Skyrim expansion, Dragonborn, for the PS3 with hopes of returning to Dawnguard and Hearthfire after they’re able to release Dragonborn on the console.
“For those that are playing the content already, we hope you’re having a blast in Solstheim. And as noted in Monday’s blog post, we’re hard at work to make this content available early next year on PS3 and PC. On PS3 in particular, we turned our attention to Dragonborn, as we thought it was the best content to release first, and we didn’t want folks to wait longer. Once it’s ready to go for everyone, we’ll continue our previous work on Hearthfire and Dawnguard for PS3. Each one takes a lot of time and attention to work well in all circumstances and all combinations of DLC.”
Currently, Dragonborn is set to hit the PS3 sometime in early 2013. It is however, currently available on the Xbox 360 for $20.
What do you think? Should the developers be working harder on releasing DLC for PS3 owners of Skyrim? Comment below.
