Fallout 3 DLC delayed by a month

The second and third downloadable content packs for Fallout 3 have both been delayed by a month, according to Gamespot. The two content packs: The Pitt and Broken Steel can now be expected to arrive in March and April respectively. The first of the downloadable content for Fallout 3 – Operation Anchorage – has been available for PC and Xbox 360 users since January 27.

The Pitt will allow players to travel and explore the ruins of what used to be Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Broken Steel continues the main story of Fallout 3, carrying on from where the player was left off. It also increases the level cap from 20 to 30. For this, the player works with the Brotherhood of Steel to finish off the Enclave, although not much else is known about the content pack.

Although players will probably be happy to hear about the extended ending provided by Broken Steel, it's not clear what cost the downloadable content packs will have. Operation Anchorage cost 800 Microsoft Points, which some were a little less pleased about, and we can only speculate that the next two will be similarly priced.

With the G.E.C.K – the content editor for the Windows version of Fallout 3 – there are already silly numbers of extras available to enhance and extend the game, but until then, fans will just have to cross their fingers that the downloadable content packs won't be delayed further.

I only hope theres more than the 1 hour of gameplay Anchorage gave. Nice to get the extra gear out of it, but really, a pointless expansion that seemed very much bolted on and completely out of context with the game.

What is it lately with DLC being delayed? Tomb Raider DLC has been delayed, the Fable DLC was delayed, there are others but I cannot think of them off hand ...

Little thing called the Global Economic Crisis might have had something to do with it.

Either that or Bethesda decided that they needed more time to finish The Pitt. And so they gave themselves more time. Because they are not owned by EA. Yeah, I know: Scary thought, that one. A software company that can actualy delay a product that's not ready to be released just for quality reasons. What's this world coming to? ;)

I other news, an EA corporate executivemay have been seen today eating babies drinking the blood of virgins in order to stay enternaly young through a dark occult ritual. Or maybe not. Could go either way.

Did I mention I hate EA?

I was thinking about why the DLC was being delayed :l
I don't think its the crisis, I think they just needed sometime on putting something extra in or correcting mistakes
