After releasing the second DLC for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim onto the PC, in the form of Hearthfire, Bethesda has made a new statement concerning the lack of any add-ons for Skyrim on the PlayStation 3 platform, saying that it’s still working hard on this issue.
Skyrim came out back in November of last year and, since this summer, it’s received two different DLC packs, in the form of Dawnguard
, both appearing on the Xbox 360 first and then on the PC.
Sadly, due to technical problems, Bethesda was forced to delay
the release of the two expansions on the PlayStation 3 platform.
Now, the studio’s Vice President of PR and Marketing, Pete Hines, has made a new statement, saying that there are no new details about DLC for Skyrim on PS3.
"I don't have any info on Hearthfire, Dawnguard, or DLC in general for PS3. We're still on it. Will share update when I have one,” he admitted on Twitter
While the studio has managed to make the two expansions work well on the PlayStation 3, there are still some problems occurring in certain cases, so the developer wants to eliminate all of them before releasing the DLC packs.
“The [DLC's] performance isn't good enough in all cases," he explained. "For most folks, it'd be fine. For some, it wouldn't be."
According to Hines, the studio doesn’t want to throw the blame on Sony’s shoulders, saying that: "We've never blamed anyone or anything. It's our problem, and it's on us to solve it."
Ever since its release, Skyrim has experienced lots of issues on the PlayStation 3, as after each save, files would get larger and larger, resulting in intense lag during the game and even frequent crashes or freezes.
Some of these problems were eliminated through many patches
, but it seems that there are still lingering issues affecting the DLC.
