Skyrim developer Bethesda Game Studios has said new Skyrim DLC for the PS3 and PC versions of its dragony adventure are ‘close’. The update came via Twitter and offered no further information, although the dev also tweeted ‘Thanks to all our fans. We think you'll love the new stuff. We know it takes us time and thanks for all your support and patience!’
Bethesda hasn’t released any of Skyrim’s three add-on packs--Dawnguard, Hearthfire, Dragonborn--for PS3, blaming performance issues. Last month, Bethesda’s vice president of marketing, Pete Hines, also chose Twitter to update on the situation, although the update was that there was no update: “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."
So while this latest update from Bethesda Game Studios still doesn’t offer anything as solid as an actual DLC delivery schedule for PS3 owners, it’s an indication that the dev has made a breakthrough in making the game run--at the very least--to an acceptable standard on Sony’s machine.
Skyrim Dragonborn DLC is scheduled to release for Xbox 360 on 4 December.
