Fallout and Skyrim Mods for PS4 Indefinitely Delayed
Never ever. For now.
There’s been an update to the Ps4 console mod situation over at Bethesda. Their original intention was to offer mod support alongside Xbox at the same time when it came to Fallout and Skyrim, but an unexpected delay had occurred preventing that from happening for Sony in late May/early June. As recent as a few days ago, Bethesda expressed their continuous desire and efforts to make happen one way or the other.
But that’s not possible, apparently. Today, Bethesda posted this official announcement on their website. Sounds like Sony isn’t willing to negotiate.
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.
Bethesda had made a clear effort to get everything necessary in place on their end. When it came to updates for Fallout 4 on the system, the code architecture necessary to support the feature was added in there over time. It looks like that space will be left dormant for now.
