The first expansion for Skyrim, titled “Dawnguard”, was released for the Xbox 360 in June, and launched on PC in August, presumably at the same time that everyone was expecting the PS3 version to also be available. But that’s not the case, Bethesda has chosen to disclose more information to the masses about what the hold-up is.

“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,” Bethesda’s official statement reads. “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.”

Bethesda was known to have problems launching Skyrim on the PS3, as the game has had the most problems on that platform, and the following news in the statement is perhaps the least hopeful for PS3 owners of the game, saying “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.”

Not a good time for owners of the PS3 version of Skyrim, let’s hope that they get the content to the platform.
