Skyrim Dawnguard on the PS3 may still be a ways off, according to Bethesda. The developer attributes quality concerns on the console as to why it has yet to release on the PS3. Bethesda recently revealed this in detail on the Bethesda Blog, giving PS3 gamers an update on the new content and when it would come available. But frankly, they didn’t have any concrete details to share.
“We are not satisfied yet with Dawnguard’s performance on the PS3. We would like for everyone to have a chance to play Dawnguard, but we aren’t going to release it for PS3 knowing that some people’s experience in Skyrim will be worse. We do everything we can to have our content available to all; from our free updates, to user mods, to paid DLC. We’re as disappointed as our fans when that isn’t the case, but we’ll continue to push for that reality.”
These are not promising words from Bethesda. This could indicate that there are serious issues with the content, much like the problems with the PS3 version of Skyrim at launch in 2011. It took Bethesda some time to get those problems ironed out initially. Let’s hope it doesn’t take as long to get to the bottom of it so PS3 players can get up to speed with the PC and Xbox 360 versions of Skyrim.
Today, Bethesda launched the Skyrim Dawnguard Expansion on Steam.
