Skyrim Dawnguard not cancelled for PS3

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.

Yeah, well I loved Skyrim, got tired of waiting so I traded it in on Borderlands 2. Why bother waiting when we aren’t going to get it anytime soon. And don’t even expect me to play the MMP Elder Scrolls.

Dawnguard is boring as hell i give you a week to it then you will get bored there is not much to do and the heartfire it just a house nothing more to it it just a house in a forest god i was definitely wrong to get an xbox i will switch back to PS3 ASAP

I think by this time that they should either give the PS3 users a discount on Dawnguard if not issue it for free as we with PS3s have had to wait a long time. I have pretty much forgotten all about Skyrim at this point.

I really don’t care anymore. The hype for dawnguard is over for me, and I feel I’m being punished by microsoft for buying a PS3. I’m probably not going to by any games from bethesda or microsoft related for my PS3.

I don’t want to pick a fight with anyone. I honestly just found about this DLC. Plus, some people raise pretty good points for the console. PS3 IS a little more complicated than PC and Xbox, but I am not picking sides. If they are lying, chances are I’ll forget about it in the first place. But if they really are working really hard to make improvements for the PS3 version, then kudos. I can honestly wait for both DLC whenever they figure out what to do (if they do ever figure it out).

I’m pretty angry over the whole thing. I big reason why I was excited about the game was the promise of large dlcs to come. Bethesda should provide us ps3 users with a pc version for this failure.

while i am not surprised about the fact that there are issues with dawnguard i am surprised at how long its taken. for anyone who got skyrim on ps3 at launch…me…you will know how ruff it was to play before several patches. i think its was 1.4 when it was fixed properly. while waiting this long its too long i have no issue waiting until they get it right. don’t just put the blame on bethesda either. i remember several 3rd party developers saying from day 1 of the systems life that the ps3 was difficult to make games for… Read more »

Ur an absolute prat Bethesda is quite clearly working as hard as they can as if they were not pet Hines wouldn’t be saying this I support Bethesda in whatever decision they make and so what if the DLC dosent come out like Peter Hines also said you don’t buy a game for the DLC

F@$K Bethesda
F@$K Bethesda

Like I said, my previous comment would be deleted. Anyways there are better games than Skyrim. PS3 gamers, don’t be worried. GTA 5 is right around the corner… We’ll soon drink German ale and pee on every Betehsda game. OWNED

F@$K Bethesda
F@$K Bethesda

Grant it this comment will probably be deleted, but any gamer with a grain of common sense knows that they’re lying. They are only trying to maximize profits on the PS3 before they pull the plug and say “Whoopsies! We can’t bring Skyrim DLC to PS3. Sorry.”

I’m glad that I didn’t purchase Skyrim…saved me aLOT of stress! lol. 🙂
