Fallout 4 owners on PlayStation 4 are still awaiting any formal announcement from Bethesda Softworks in regards to when mods are finally going to be made available.
Fallout 4 modding support was supposed to arrive on Sony’s current-generation console at the end of June but was then pushed into July. We’re now in August and still without a tentative release date. Pete Hines, Marketing Head at Bethesda, has now offered a brief update to clarify everyone on the current situation.
“We’re working with Sony on Fallout 4 mod support for PS4,” Hines wrote on Twitter. “The process is still under evaluation. As soon as we learn more, we will share news.”
In the last couple of weeks there have been similar tweets to suggest that Bethesda has done all it can and is now awaiting approval from Sony. Citing the same wait, Hines responded to a fan on Twitter recently by stating that he’s not going to “risk” it by offering a release date that could possible be changed. More information has been promised in the coming days, but that really depends on how soon Sony can give Bethesda a thumbs-up.
In the wake of the delay, many fans have lined up on Twitter to blame Bethesda for keeping its fans in the dark. Hines agreed to that but explained that they can only offer substantial information once it’s available. He hinted that they have already explained the situation to “others” and have asked for an update. While Hines did not clarify as to who “others” are in this case, it most likely seems to be Sony.
Fallout 4 received official modding support on PC in April, followed by Xbox One in May. PlayStation 4 was the last of the batch and should have received it by the end of June. Issues with the PlayStation 4 versions ultimately forced the developer to delay the release of mods by a month’s time.
