With Dragonborn being the most ambitious and exciting piece of add-on content yet, the studio has decided to focus on getting that particular batch of content PS3-ready before returning to work on Hearthfire and Dawnguard.
Bethesda shared the news on their official blog, saying:
For those that are playing the content already, we hope you’re having a blast in Solstheim. And as noted in Monday’s blog post, we’re hard at work to make this content available early next year on PS3 and PC.
On PS3 in particular, we turned our attention to Dragonborn, as we thought it was the best content to release first, and we didn’t want folks to wait longer. Once it’s ready to go for everyone, we’ll continue our previous work on Hearthfire and Dawnguard for PS3.
Each one takes a lot of time and attention to work well in all circumstances and all combinations of DLC. Once we have a better idea of release timing and pricing, we’ll let you know.
