Bethesda Softworks has just announced the expected release schedule for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s infamous patch 1.7 on consoles.
North America, you’re sitting pretty, but Europe…
From a tweet by Bethesda:
“1.7 title update for Skyrim expected to release this Thurs. on 360 (worldwide) and PS3 (N. America). PS3 (Europe) release next week.”
So it’s not as bad as all that, but it’s at least a little peculiar that PlayStation 3 owners are being made to wait a while longer not only than their North American counterparts, but their Xbox 360 friends, too.
Also note the use of the word ‘expected’ in the sentence - this isn’t a definite schedule but Bethesda has used that word before and hit its dates, so we’re betting on the first wave of the Skyrim patch to hit this Thursday, August 9th, as planned.
Have you got your hopes up or will you ‘see it before you believe it?’
