Sony on Skyrim DLC: No promises, but 'everyone involved is trying their best'

  • Posted September 7th, 2012 at 19:48 EDT by Kyle Prahl

Several days ago, Bethesda broke silence on Skyrim DLC on PlayStation 3, or rather, the lack thereof. In an official forum statement, Global Community Lead Gstaff let PS3 Skyrim owners know that Bethesda may not be able to solve technical issues that have plagued Skyrim since release. In short, the vampire-themed Dawnguard expansion and future DLC may never come to PS3.

Adam Boyes, Head of Publisher Relations with Sony Computer Entertainment America, spoke to Kotaku about Bethesda's PS3 incompetency and when we can expect this DLC to arrive. "We work with all of our partners to try and solve their problems," he said. "We have broad dev support team that works closely with Bethesda . . . to solve that any sort of issues they have along the way."

It's heartening to hear, but what Boyes says next is far from good news. "I can't promise any kind of resolution or timeline but can say that everyone involved is trying their best to get this stuff going."

If Sony is working with Bethesda, but Bethesda is still at a loss for how to make Dawnguard work on PS3, then we could be in for a rougher ride than expected. Let us know what you think of these developments in the comments below - Should Bethesda offer some kind of recompense for jilted PS3 owners?
