'Skyrim' PS3 DLCs 'Dragonborn' and 'Dawnguard' In The Works
Bethesda has relayed plans to release the DLCs for the PS3 version of Skyrim.
Skyrim has seen the release of two official DLCs since its release in late 2011, and the DLCs have been available on both the PC and Xbox 360, but have been curiously absent on the PlayStation 3.
Irate fans have since dismissed their hopes that Bethesda would ever release either Dawnguard or the more recent Hearthfire expansion for the PS3 despite repeated assurances from Bethesda's developers and the company's main mouthpiece, Pete Hines. Hines, who goes by @DCDeacon on Twitter, often interacts with the fans and relays news both good and bad about the studio's developments.
Today, Hines was asked by a fan, directly, about the status of the new Dragonborn DLC. Like Dawnguard and Hearthfire, the new DLC is currently available as a timed exclusive for the Xbox 360 and will see eventual release on the PC. The fan asked Hines whether Bethesda had any plans to release it on the PS3. "I'm so tired of this whole mess," he wrote.
Hines was quick to respond, stating that he would deliver a date as soon as possible. Unsatisfied with the response, and deservedly irate, the fan asked for further details, to which Pete Hines responded:
"no, we said we were still working on Dawnguard. We have committed to Dragonborn release. Just haven't announced date yet"

It goes without saying (or perhaps it needs to be said, repeatedly) that Bethesda appears committed to delivering the DLCs for the PS3. Unfortunately, they do not seem to have any solid timeframe for when they plan to release the expansions. It's difficult to fathom how much difficulty they're going through to deliver the new content to the PS3 when the game remains barely stable on the system.
