But console giant cannot promise any kind of resolution or timeline to bug fixes, says VP Adam Boyes

Sony is providing a large development support team to work with Bethesda on fixing the various issues affecting blockbuster RPG Skyrim on PS3.

Since release on the console the title has been plagued by a number of bugs, such as struggling to cope with the amount of game data as a player progresses through their game.

Bethesda has also recently revealed that it was not positive it could solve the problems surrounding the release of DLC Dawnguard, which was released in June for Xbox 360 and PC owners.

The studio said it was unsure if it could make the game plable to an acceptable quality, given the sizeable content added in the expansion.

It also admitted that it could not commit too many developers to fix the issues as it had other expansions in the works.

Speaking to Kotaku however, Sony VP Adam Boyes said there was a sizeable team supporting Bethesda to overcome Skyrim’s problems on PS3, but could not provide a timeframe for when Dawnguard would be released or when bug fixes would be implemented.

"We work with all of our partners to try and solve their problems," said Boyes.

"We have a big, broad dev support team that works closely with Bethesda - and with all of our partners - to work with them to solve that any sort of issues they have along the way."

"Of course, I always want everything to work always for everyone. I can't promise any kind of resolution or timeline but can say that everyone involved is trying their best to get this stuff working."
