The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dawnguard is facing a further delay on PS3 after Bethesda admitted it isn't happy with the current state of the expansion on Sony's console.

A post on the official Bethesda Blog explained: "We are not satisfied yet with Dawnguard's performance on the PS3. We would like for everyone to have a chance to play Dawnguard, but we aren't going to release it for PS3 knowing that some people's experience in Skyrim will be worse.

"We do everything we can to have our content available to all; from our free updates, to user mods, to paid DLC. We're as disappointed as our fans when that isn't the case, but we'll continue to push for that reality."

There's no word on how long a wait PS3 gamers will have to endure.

Dawngaurd released for Xbox 360 on June 26 and is now also available on Steam.
