With still no release date in sight for the Dawnguard or Hearthfire DLC on the PS3 version of Skyrim, Bethesda has announced its intention to release the newer Dragonborn DLC on the console before resuming work on resolving the issues they are experiencing with the two earlier DLC packs.
Writing on their blog, the publisher stated, “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.
“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. Once we have a better idea of release timing and pricing, we’ll let you know.”
Bethesda has already stated that the Dragonborn DLC should see release on PC and PS3 in early 2013, so it seems that already long-suffering PS3 players still have a long wait until the two earlier DLC packs appear on their console – if they appear at all.
