Skyrim developer Bethesda has responded to suggestions that Dawnguard's PS3 delay has been lengthened by the announcement of the Hearthfire DLC for Xbox 360, calling the expansions "separate things".
"We are working on multiple projects, even beyond those two things.The entire team doesn't work on one thing at a time," Pete Hines tweeted to followers. "They are separate things," he said at the suggestion Hearthfire's development was slowing that of Dawnguard's for PlayStation.
In response to a fan upset at the continued absence of Dawnguard for PS3 Hines wrote: "Understood. We're disappointed too, but we're keeping at it."
Dawnguard still has no release date for PS3, but Xbox 360 owners will be able to download the recently-announced Hearthfire as soon as next week.
At least PS3 players can now indulge in mounted combat thanks to the launch of Skyrim update 1.7 earlier this week.
