The drama surrounding Skyrim Dawnguard on the PS3 might not be that known to gamers on other platforms, but certainly those using the PlayStation 3 know how frustrating it is seeing other platforms receive both Skyrim Hearthfire and Dawnguard while PS3 players just wonder if they’d ever receive either of the DLC.
There aren’t many VPs of PR in the gaming industry that take as much abuse as Pete Hines, which is primarily due to the lack of communication surrounding a release date for Dawnguard on the PS3, and in fact any DLC coming to that platform. Today we’ve seen a tweet from Hines that is a little more reassuring than most.
Just over 12 hours ago Hines posted a message on his favorite social networking website explaining that Dawnguard is “not cancelled” for PS3, and Bethesda is in fact “still working on it“. It seems that the developers are still at a loss as to getting any DLC working smoothly on the PS3, and right now they seem to be “trying things“, so take from that what you will. You can see the latest tweet in the image below.
Have you given up hope on Dawnguard coming to PS3? We guess PS3 players are in a couple of places right now, which might include one of feeling more frustrated than ever, or feeling just fine thanks to moving on from Skyrim and possibly all Bethesda made games.
It is strange that after the PS3 has been out for such a long time these problems are happening, or maybe this is just an issue with the Bethesda development team. One thing is for sure and that is any new DLC will slow the process for fixing these issues in some way, which has been noted before when Hines explained that team members work on more than one project. We also wonder why Bethesda won’t do a weekly blog update on their official website that explains how the development for PS3 Dawnguard is going, unless there’s little news, which would explain their lack of communication.
