In a surprise move, Bethesda announced yesterday that Skyrim: Dragonborn—the next DLC in their popular franchise—will be coming to gamers on both Playstation 3 and PC. They gave no word on a release date, however, only saying that this new chapter in the series would arrive “early next year.”

Bethesda recently responded to a related article on Eurogamer with the following:

“We think Dragonborn is our best add-on for Skyrim yet, and we didn’t want fans to wait long, so that’s our current focus. Each platform takes a lot of time and attention. As noted in our blog post, we’re not done with content for Skyrim. When we’re ready to share more details, we’ll update everyone.”

In light of this statement, it’s safe to assume that Bethesda has yet to resolve the current issues still plaguing Hearthfire and Dawnguard, their other two previous DLC releases. Even so, the announcement of a multi-platform release is a promising sign of things to come.

Dragonborn will be released on the Xbox 360 on December 4, which may mean an early January release date for the PS3 and PC versions.
