Just one day after we posted news about the Skyrim Hearthfire DLC coming to the Xbox 360 within the next week, and most likely before Dawnguard lands on the PS3, it seems that Bethesda’s PR guy, Pete Hines, has issued a response to disappointment from PS3 owners and this has been done with Twitter.
It is great to see certain issues dealt with, but this hasn’t reduced the frustration with the lack of communication from Bethesda, and more specifically with details on exactly why the PS3 version of Skyrim hasn’t received Dawnguard yet. If we had weekly updates on the official blog with progress reports, then in our opinion this would help reduce a lot of the anger.
The latest tweet came after one gamer asked for a reaction to the upset over Skyrim Hearthfire coming to the Xbox 360, which is likely before the first DLC will even release on PS3. The image below shows what Hines replied, and in a nutshell he explains that they’re working on “multiple projects” and those behind Skyrim are split into different tasks, so some gamers hope this means there are a number of people working on fixing the issues with Dawnguard on PS3.
What if the team is over stretched on too many projects? The tweet above could also mean every team member has more than one project they’re working on, and the Dawnguard issue might not be worked on consistently until it’s fixed, which would surly slow down how quick the problem would be sorted. We’ve seen a number of PS3 gamers ask for the whole team to drop everything and get Dawnguard working for the PS3, rather than be spread out on multiple projects, and others find it strange why it’s taking so long.
Do you think Dawnguard for PS3 is being worked on every day? Have a look at the tweet above and also the official trailer for Skyrim Hearthfire here, and let us know what you make of this latest tweet by Hines. The communication with Bethesda on Twitter is not very clear and messages are always vague, and we find it hard to believe Bethesda is contently working on fixing the issues.
