Arrow in the Knee: Dawnguard Release for PS3/PC Refuted by Bethesda

Posted By | On 26th, Jul. 2012 Under News

Bethesda won’t admit to as much (read: they most certainly will) but the Elder Scrolls: Skyrim changed things. Forever. No longer were gamers simply content to cater to things like the real world anymore. And the new Dawnguard DLC cemented that further, luring back those who never left in the first place.

But that doesn’t include PS3 or, even more mysteriously, PC gamers. Rumours had been flying of an emanate announcement on the same, but Bethesda’s VP of PR and marketing Pete Hines stated differently on Twitter.

We have not announced Dawnguard for any other platform, nor given a timeline for any such news. If we have news, I promise I’d tell you.

Before you rush off with a rage-stained reply though, Hines noted that:

I was simply stating that expecting/demanding something today is unfounded. Not that news is never coming.

So there’s definitely hope. Till then, wait and watch as always.

    Thank you bethesda. Thank you for letting me know to torrent Dawnguard instead of giving you my money. 🙂

    • Meisadragon

      That’s a bit harsh, isn’t it? They probably have some exclusivity deal with Xbox.

    • Trollvahkiin

      Not to sound like an impatient ass, but what the hell have they been doing for the past month?

    • Meisadragon

      No idea at all.

  • Will

    I wouldn’t say it was unreasonable to expect some kind of information – no matter how slight – about Dawnguard on other platforms. Especially as we were told that the Xbox 360 was getting a 30-day exclusive period which has now ended. It’s simply unfair to lumber those who are demanding with those who were expecting.

  • Arth

    I don’t really care about the exclusivity for the XBOX.
    I mean, let them have their time. We’ve had PC-exclusive Dragonbone Weapons, enhanced Vampires AND Werewolves (and, although limited, Dragon-transformations), millenias of playtime hours added by new quests/dungeons/homes/followers/game mechanics, all added through Mods and we can fix 90% of the bugs ourselves (or probably won’t have to, since the Unofficial Skyrim Patch handles most of that).
    So, let them have their one to three months of exclusivity. We’ve had more.

    • Trollvahkiin

      And throwing knives, dont forget throwing knives

  • this is unacceptable bethesda has had a month to work on the the pc and ps3 version and it should of been released on the 26th there is no excuse. I’m just hoping that this won’t lead to a trend where only one console gets a certain expansion pack

  • Jarl Ulfric Stormcloak

    Skyrim belongs to the PS3 users!

    • Trollvahkiin

      It belongs to any and all Dovahkiin no matter what console they play the game on.

  • allison

    Regardless of PC exclusives, PS3 has had little to none of that. I’m not demanding it, but it’s absolutely ridiculous that they DON’T release it for the rest of the consoles. I mean, you’ve got to be fucking kidding me. I would feel the same way if it were only out for PS3. It’s entirely unfair.

  • SynthRage

    Was really looking forward to this but Bethesda dropped another steaming pile of disappointment! I’m not paying for this bs if this is how you’re treating your loyal PC and PS3 fans. It’s fine for xbox exclusivity but you only had thirty days…Don’t make promises if you can’t keep them.

  • Consumer

    F*ck you Hines, I’d expect you to do your job after I stood two hours in line on Skyrim release to buy a BROKEN game. So sick of being treated like second class citizens just because Microsoft shove money up your asses. And they best fire that arrogant PR prick.

  • Zermel

    I don’t get why every PS3 user has to be so rude. It takes longer for Bethesda to make Dawnguard playable for PS3 because it has much better graphics than the Xbox.Plus I don’t get why people can be so impatient.

  • Zermel

    It will be ready when it is ready.This isn’t something you can make happen any faster.If anything they will be under so much pressure that they won’t even bother fixing any bugs and will have fucked you out of $20 in the long run for rushing them.
