Skyrim: Dawnguard May Not Be Coming to PlayStation 3 After All

PC and Xbox 360 players have already had the chance to enjoy Skyrim‘s ‘Dawnguard‘ expansion, but PlayStation 3 owners have been left wondering when, if ever, they’ll be able to get their hands on the game’s first major DLC.

Unfortunately, things aren’t looking so good on that front.

When Dawnguard first made its way to Xbox 360, Bethesda said that the PlayStation 3 version would be held back so that the development team could hammer out a few problems. Unfortunately, the developers discovered the issue is not one that the team is positive they can resolve.

In a post on the developer’s forums, Bethesda had this to say:

“It’s been a few weeks, and we wanted to make sure everyone knows where we’re at with Dawnguard. 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.

“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.”

If we hear anything else, we’ll be sure to let you know.
