If you are playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on the Xbox 360 and PC, chances are you have already experienced some of Bethesda's newer content. Dawnguard and Hearthfire may be old news for most gamers, but the hunger is growing for those playing Skyrim on the Playstation 3. Unfortunately, Bethesda created a proverbial carrot-on-a-stick situation with this older downloadable content.
Bethesda discussed in a recent blog post that Playstation 3 owners will now be waiting even longer on Skyrim's first two downloadable content packs. The company decided to place its current work on hold in order to focus all of its effort on bringing Dragonborn, Skyrim's first true expansion, to the Playstation 3 and PC in the early months of 2013. Why, you ask? The developers felt that this expansion is the better experience for the user and hopes to eliminate another untimely delay. No definitive date has been offered for Dragonborn, but Bethesda made it abundantly clear that Dawnguard and Hearthfire will not be worked on before Dragonborn's release.
Patience may be a virtue, but how long are Playstation 3 owners willing to wait before throwing in the towel on Dawnguard and Hearthfire... or on Skyrim itself?
