After mods were released on Xbox for Fallout 4, and facing delays over the PS4 platform, Bethesda have finally released an update on any potential mods for Fallout 4 and Skyrim: Ultimate Edition in a brief statement that can be read here:
PS4 Mod Update
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.
While this doesn’t rule out the inclusion of mods on the PS4 system in the long term, it does signify that Fallout 4 and the upcoming remaster of Skyrim will not be supporting it on the PS4 system, which is unfortunate.
