Blame Microsoft for paying for a longer term of exclusivity with the proviso that they’re not allowed to say so. Expect it to come out a little after six months on from the XBox 360 release.
Now I know what you’re thinking, Peter is off the deep-end again. I mean, it’s not like this has happened before where Bethesda has not released DLC for the PS3 due to a long exclusivity deal and then pretended it was delayed for other reasons so people come to their ‘own conclusions’.
So when can you expect Fallout 3 DLC? We are knee deep in testing at the moment, and we’re hoping to have the first DLC out by the end of September. That long? Keep in mind that not only do we need to test each DLC on PS3, we also need to test each DLC when used in conjunction with each of the other DLC, as well as all of them together, along with the entire original game.
This time, they’ve tried even harder to help people come to the conclusion Microsoft is hoping people will believe:
The PS3 is a powerful system, and we’re working hard to deliver the content you guys want.
Yes, Bethesda, absolutely nothing happened in Sector 83 by 9 by 12 today. I repeat, nothing happened in Sector 83 by 9 by 12.
I wonder how much Bethesda gets for this sort of behaviour, Rockstar supposedly received $50,000,000 for the GTA4 delay shenanigans.
