The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Dawnguard Not Yet Announced for PC and PlayStation 3

A PC player and PlayStation 3 player walk into a bar…

Bethesda Game Studios marketing boss Pete Hines dampened hopes for a quick PC and PlayStation 3 release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Dawnguard DLC.

Pete Hines said 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.” Is that your final answer?

Dawnguard is the first official expansion for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim which came to Xbox 360 on the 26th June. Although Bethesda Game Studios has made no promises, you can safely assume other platforms would get the DLC after an Microsoft exclusivity period of around a month.

All Bethesda Game Studios in recent years has had this same problem Fallout 3 and even Obsidian Entertainment Fallout: New Vegas had DLC come out first on Xbox 360 before anywhere else. That is what you get when companies pays a lot of money for a limited time exclusive. PC and Playstation 3 users will get the DLC  sometime this year but at least the PC version should hopefully be well polished by then. Also you’re not missing that much.

  1. Now that Microsoft’s 30-day exclusive time deal has expired, I would have thought Sony and Steam would have jumped on rolling out their Dawnguard DLC immediately. I know there are a lot of PS3 and PC users waiting to get their extra content now. Though it just doesn’t seem fair that Microsoft was able to monopolize the content for themselves and all Xbox Live users (not that I’m complaining as I have Skyrim for the Xbox). What are you going to do? It’s just the game of business. Good post.

    1. Thanks, I would expect it to come out soon. The other companies just don’t seem willing to pay that little bit extra for the exclusivity rights.
