Early last month, Bethesda said that it was “closer” to ironing out a number of kinks that was preventing the studio from releasing Skyrim DLC on the PlayStation 3, but Bethesda kept quiet on the specifics.
Although the previously-released Skyrim DLC packs still haven’t made it to the platform a month later, Bethesda said in a recent update on its blog that it aims to have the Dragonborn DLC released on the PlayStation 3 along with the PC version early next year.
“We’re hard at work to make this content available early next year on PS3 and PC. On PS3 in particular, we turned our attention to Dragonborn, as we thought it was the best content to release first, and we didn’t want folks to wait longer,” Bethesda wrote.
Dragonborn will be the first DLC to be released for the PlayStation 3 version of Skyrim, but Bethesda says that it’s committed to eventually releasing the Hearthfire and Dawnguard DLCs on the platform as well.
“Once it’s ready to go for everyone, we’ll continue our previous work on Hearthfire and Dawnguard for PS3. Each one takes a lot of time and attention to work well in all circumstances and all combinations of DLC. Once we have a better idea of release timing and pricing, we’ll let you know.”
Dragonborn, the third DLC pack for Skyrim, is already available on the Xbox 360 as part of a timed exclusivity agreement between Bethesda and Microsoft. A PC (and PlayStation 3) version is said to be coming “early” next year, but unfortunately no specific date was given.
PlayStation 3 owners: have you since given up on DLC ever coming to Skyrim, or are you still waiting?
