PlayStation 3 gamers awaiting the arrival of the Dawnguard and Hearthfire expansions for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim may want to get comfortable. Bethesda said in a blog post recently that it will not return to work on those expansions until development on Dragonborn for the PS3 is finished.

"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," the company said. "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."

The Dragonborn expansion for Skyrim launched this week for the Xbox 360 at $20. It is due out for the PS3 and PC sometime in early 2013. For more on the content, check out GameSpot's Now Playing feature below.
