Bethesda “Not Positive” That Dawnguard Will Ever Make it to PS3

The Skyrim DLC schedule will soon see its second release, in the shape of Hearthfire, on the Xbox 360. That expansion is expected on the PC around a month later, as was the case with the first DLC expansion: Dawnguard. But the prospect of ever seeing any Skyrim DLC on a PlayStation 3 is looking uncertain.

A locked thread has gone up on Bethesda’s forums to address the ongoing absence of Dawnguard on the PlayStation 3:


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.

So it seems like there’s some kind of problem with expanding content on the PS3 – something that other developers seem to have found a way to make work. It’s well known that the PS3’s architecture is more complicated than most developers would prefer but we’re now almost six years into its life and Bethesda has put out multiple titles on the console. You’d think they’d know it inside out by now.

It would be quite interesting to know what the actual problem is, we’re sure there will be plenty of assumptions made in the coming days.

  1. I had such high hopes for Skyrim on my PS3, then I took an arrow to the knne.
    Despite this & other well documented issues, Skyrim is still amazing.
    (Bar release lag pre patch. i’ve had next to no issues. Very occasional freeze on a load screen.)

    • skrim ps3 arrow *knee:)

      • Get out! *Whips out his daedric sword of flames and for some reason, kittens out and points it at E8ball*

  2. Hitting home how gutted I am about this… After screens, utube peaks & Peters’ review.
    I was looking forward so much to the new character(s)/models, a much needed werewolf skill tree & the extra depth & dynamics this would bring to the story/world.
