Pete Hines hints at Skyrim’s DLC, high resolution texture pack not coming to consoles

Skyrim was one of the most anticipated games of 2011 and as you’d expect, a DLC for it will be released this year. Although we don’t have any release date or juicy details about it, VP of PR and marketing for Bethesda, Pete Hines, hinted in his Twitter that a DLC is a ‘safe bet‘ and we should stay tuned for more. Bethesda will obviously focus on it now that both the Creation Kit and Patch 1.4 are out of the way, so expect some news about it in the coming weeks or months.
This is not the first time that Hines hinted to a possible DLC. Yesterday, Hines responded to a console gamer – who was disappointed with Bethesda’s focus on the PC version of Skyrim – and said that just because they haven’t announced anything, it doesn’t mean that they are not working on cool stuff for consoles/all platforms. Cool stuff for all platforms can mean one thing that is a DLC.
In other news, Hines stated that the high-resolution texture pack will not come to consoles. Hines explained that the texture pack is not applicable to consoles and that it works for PC because PC owners can max out their hardware with it. In other words, Skyrim for consoles would be facing performance issues with it.
