Several months ago Bethesda said that they would be releasing mod support for Fallout 4 on the PlayStation 4, and then they delayed it.
Today they have delayed the release of mod support once again, revealing that the support has been delayed indefinitely, stating the reason for which is due to Sony’s approval process.
This mod support is already available on the Xbox One and the PC version of the game, allowing players to add extra things to the game like customs, guns and even unlimited supplies and ammo.
Bethesda explained the delay with the following statement:
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.
Sony hasn’t released their own statement on this issue yet, but Microsoft took the opportunity to boast about Xbox’s mod support and other features with the following tweet.
Mod support ?
Backward Compatibility ?
Fastest, most reliable gaming network ? https://t.co/XS7pwdZWHB
