The Dragonborn PS3c release date is set for "early" 2013 but Skyrim fans hopeful the DLC might arrive this January are now realizing the Dragonborn PS3 release date may not arrive until February. Read on for more Skyrim news and rumors.

We all hoped the Dragonborn PS3 release date would arrive by the end of the month (despite Bethesda's long history of snubbing PlayStation), but with January drawing to a close it's become clear that "early 2013" could mean February or even March.

The Dragonborn PS3 release date will be the first DLC for PlayStation users even though Skyrim has been out for over a year and Xbox users have already gotten their hands on Dragonborn, Dawnguard and Hearthfire. The fact that Skyrim's PS3 packaging promised DLC has only made gamers even angrier, notes Auto-oMobile.

"PS3 Skyrim Dragonborn release date may not be this month," predicts the technology news-site's Alex Bagi.

A recent Twitter conversation between an Skyrim fan and Bethesda's Peter Hines has also left gamers discouraged and confused over the Dragonborn PS3 release date. When will the first PlayStation DLC come out? Hines had little to say on the matter.

Here's the conversation between Peter Hines (@DCDeacon) and Skryim gamer Kyle Collier (@Kyle_lobcity) regarding the Dragonborn PS3 release date:

Collier: "When can we be expecting dragonborn on ps3 I'm so tired of this whole mess."

Hines: "Will get you a date as soon as I can."

Collier: "Surely we deserve a bit more than that don't you think? That's the same answer we were getting for dawnguard. Look how that went."

Hines: "No, we said we were still working on Dawnguard. We have committed to Dragonborn release. Just haven't announced date yet."

Collier: "This is bullsh*t."

And that was the end of that brief discussion of the Skyrim Dragonborn DLC PS3 release date.

Bethesda hasn't offered much more than a glimmer of hope to eager gamers awaiting the Dragonborn PS3 release date, demonstrating that the company famous for Skyrim needs a better PR department when it comes to DLCs.

Bethesda revealed that the first PS3 Skyrim DLC release date was on the way last year at the day before the expansion arrived on Xbox Live.

"We're also happy to announce Dragonborn will be available on PS3 and PC early next year," Bethblog revealed on December 3, 2012, hinting that the DLC release date could arrive as soon as January 2013.

The same message regarding the Dragonborn PS3 release date was also announced on Twitter when @BGS_Devs tweeted, "#Dragonborn releases on 360 tomorrow and early next year for PC & PS3! We're excited for all of you to play it."

A second PS3 Dragonborn release date update arrived on Bethblog three days later as Bethesda engineers described the process of bringing the Skyrim DLC to PlayStation owners:

"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."

With early 2013 in full swing Skyrim fans are worried the Dragonborn PS3 release date are worried the DLC won't show up until February at the earliest. Auto Mobile has argued that if the launch was scheduled for January we'd already know it:

"So this has me thinking that Bethesda isn't going to release the Dragonborn DLC for PS3 this month after all. If they were, we would already have been given a date sometime around Christmas. With how peeved PS3 gamers are already with lack of any Skyrim DLC, we doubt Bethesda would have delayed the announcement of a Dragonborn release date unless they really were more than month off."

Of course, the lack of specifics regarding the Skyrim DLC Dragonborn PS3 release date has gamers going crazy on Twitter. Here's a selection of angry tweets aimed squarely at Bethesda:

"Still waiting for #Skyrim #Dragonborn for PC/PS3," tweeted @Gam3r_0wn3d.

"You know, I don't own a PS3. I'm pretty sure that Skyrim Dragonborn for the PC is being held up because of the PS3. ...Screw the PS3," tweeted @moelane.

"Half way through the week and you haven't said a thing about Dragonborn, so when is PS3 gonna get it?" tweeted @Rick_Wildfire.

"What happened to the Dragonborn DLC for ps3," tweeted @m_s3w3ll.

"Is there any possibility of dragonborn coming to ps3 anytime soon?" tweeted Tanner johnson.

"So when is there going to be a dragonborn ps3 date or any news for that matter?" tweeted @Rick_Wildfire.

"DLC dragonborn ps3 pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase," tweeted @dimtrivanhalme.

"So about Dragonborn for PS3, whats is"early 2013"? Give us something, i think we diserve that.is it January or later?" tweeted @JonathanSabaton.

@JonathanSabaton followed up this tweet with some interesting news regarding the Skyrim DLC PS3 Dragonborn release date:

"According to my local gamestore, Dragonborn is expected for the 15th of February, is it true?" Dtweeted earlier today.

No response, and still no definitive word on the Skyrim DLC PS3 Dragonborn release date, but don't be surprised if the expansion hits PlayStation on February 15 at the earliest.
