The announced and since delayed PS4 mod support for Bethesda titles such as Fallout 4 and the upcoming Skyrim Special Edition has been cancelled. Well at least for now it would seem. Bethesda issued a statement earlier today stating that Sony would not approve the mods “the way they should work.” Check out the full statement below:
“After months of discussion with Sony, we regret to say that while we have long been ready to offer mod support on PlayStation 4, Sony has informed us they will not approve user mods the way they should work: where users can do anything they want for either Fallout 4 or Skyrim Special Edition.”
“Like you, we are disappointed by Sony’s decision given the considerable time and effort we have put into this project, and the amount of time our fans have waited for mod support to arrive. We consider this an important initiative and we hope to find other ways user mods can be available for our PlayStation audience. However, until Sony will allow us to offer proper mod support for PS4, that content for Fallout 4 and Skyrim on PlayStation 4 will not be available.”
“We will provide an update if and when this situation changes.”
This will disappoint many PS4 owners that were looking forward to having mods for their games on par with the PC and now Xbox One versions. I suspect that the mods will come following the launch of the PS4 Pro console but only time will tell.
