Hines: Skyrim Patches Expected ‘Week After Thanksgiving’

Players continue to struggle with bugs in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, with issues spanning all three platforms. Playstation 3 players are finding the game starts to lag as their saved game files become too large, while Xbox 360 and PC players have had issues with textures and frame rate.

But Bethesda has been plugging away at patches for all three platforms, and a new update from Bethesda Vice President of Public Relations Pete Hines via Twitter says the patches are just about finished:

“PS3 & 360 updates have been submitted for certification. PC coming too. Current estimate is they will be live the week after T’giving.”

So there you have it — the Skyrim issues will hopefully be laid low in a mere two weeks. Just what’s being covered by the patches, we don’t know yet, but there should at least be some relief in there. Of course, Hines’ word on the release of the patches isn’t gospel, so be prepared for some additional delays that could crop up before distribution.
