Skyrim Dragonborn PS3 DLC Release Date: January Hopes Slip

By  | 

With Xbox 360 Skyrim fans already having 3 DLCs under their belt, the coming of the Dragonborn DLC is big news for PS3 fans. At this time Bethesda has said that we will see the Dragonborn DLC release sometime early 2013.

When this announcement was made back in December of last year, the prospect of “early 2013” made it sound like we could see it as early as January. However after a recent conversation a PS3 user had with Bethesda’s Pete Hines over on Twitter, it is safe to assume that a January release date is highly unlikely now. This is how it went down:

@DCDeacon when can we be expecting dragonborn on ps3 I’m so tired of this whole mess.

@Kyle_lobcity will get you a date as soon as I can.

@DCDeacon surely we deserve a bit more than that don’t you think? That’s the same answer we were getting for dawnguard. Look how that went..

@kyle_lobcity  no, we said we were still working on Dawnguard. We have committed to Dragonborn release. Just haven’t announced date yet — Pete Hines (@DCDeacon)

The PS3 owner ended the exchange of words with,  “This is just bulls—t.”

Now that we are into the second week of January and judging by what went down on Twitter, we can assume a couple of things. For starters, Dragonborn is coming alone to the PS3 and it won’t comes as some kind of triple pack with Hearthfire and Dawnguard as previously rumored. Secondly, the manner by which Hines remains tight-lipped on divulging anything more than the previously “early 2012” release date for the Skyrim Dragonborn DLC says it isn’t around the corner.

Last year, Bethesda informed Xbox 360 Skyrim fans around 3 weeks early about the fixed Dragonborn DLC release date. Given that we haven’t heard  anything yet tells us that the Skyrim Dragonborn PS3 release date is outside of January already.

Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, PC, iPhone and Android games keep Berke busy at work all day. Honestly though we’re not sure why we’re paying him as it should be the other way around.
