Developer working with Sony to find a solution
If you purchased your copy of Skyrim for PS3, don’t hold your breath for the Dawnguard DLC.
Owing to a lot of technical problems, Bethesda remains uncertain whether the add-on will ever be released for the PlayStation. However, the developer is still working on a solution.
The latest update from Bethesda on the Skyrim forums read, “Skyrim is a massive and dynamic game that requires a lot of resources, and things get much more complex when you’re talking about sizable content like Dawnguard. We have tried a number of things, but none of them solve the issue enough to make Dawnguard good for everyone.
“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.”
The spokesperson added, “We wish we had a more definitive answer right now. We understand the frustration when the same content is not available on all platforms. When we have an update, we will certainly let you know. We deeply appreciate all the time and support you have given us, and we’ll keep doing our best to return that.”
