PC Dawnguard Info "This Week"

Last week Bethesda's Pete Hines tweeted "Just sit tight. We'll have info soon" in response to concerns that the Xbox 360 exclusivity of Dawnguard had ended without word on plans for a PC edition of this DLC for The Elders Scrolls V: Skyrim. Today he follows this will another tweet suggesting news on should come this week, saying: "Nothing has been said/announced about it. We should have info later this week." Thanks MCV.

Bethesda have made it very well known the Xbox version sells a lot more. Maybe Skyrim made more on PC than Oblivion did but the idea that it competes with the Xbox version is, in my mind, extremely wishful thinking

Where did they say that? First I've heard of it in reference to Skyrim and I think it'll come as a surprise to some here too. Anyway, it doesn't really change the fact that he wasn't being nitpicky to address a really vague claim.

As for wishful thinking, I don't know, this isn't an over the shoulder action game or something. It's a traditional PC franchise with a long standing community and great word of mouth to go along with extensive advertising both online and offline. Given the sheer breadth of the Steam platform these days I don't find it outside of the realm of reason that a PC version could perform up to a console SKU. Heck the recent BF games for example performed very well compared to their console counterparts individually and that was without the benefit of Steam.
