December 7, 2011 Written by Nick Michetti

Fallout: New Vegas developer Joshua E. Sawyer made claims about why the PlayStation 3 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is suffering from a number of technical difficulties. Bethesda has responded to questions about his statements.

In response to a question asking for thoughts on Sawyer’s claims about Skyrim‘s problems on PS3 being engine-level, Bethesda VP of PR and Marketing, Pete Hines, offered the following response:

Josh Sawyer did not work on Skyrim nor this engine and his comments don’t reflect how the current tech works.

Another question to Hines asked if the claims that were made “scared” The Elder Scrolls developer. Hines said:

No, it isn’t true. He brings up issues we solved long ago.

Bethesda recently said their next scheduled patch for the PS3 version of Skyrim may not fix the problems that users are experiencing with the game. However, Hines did recently offer a response to PSLS Editor-In-Chief Anthony Severino about the issues facing users of the PS3 version of Skyrim, which can be read here.
