Giving up to what have been a long discussion with Sony regarding the implementation of mods for Fallout 4 on the PlayStation 4 platform which caused its delay, developer behind the game, Bethesda, made an official announcement about the matter as reported in Polygon.
The problem obviously lies on Sony's attempt to prevent its implementation overall, likely rooted in the issue of "too much freedom" for players in matters of alterations involving their prized platform.
If that news was not already bad enough, Sony appears to be making matters worse when the same feature for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is also getting blocked from its future release thereby causing PlayStation 4 owners to get both games without their promised mod support unlike what Xbox One and PC owners have been enjoying in their platforms for months now.
Originally, the mod support for the console ports of the game has been nearing its stable release since April of this year, a feature which managed to make it into Xbox One but found delay on the PlayStation 4 because of Sony's initial evaluation approach. While Bethesda has been pretty open about the said mod support specific to the PlayStation 4 version of the game, Sony, on the other hand, clearly denies the rumors about the feature which gives a hint of disapproval about the supposed content for the game. As for what reason this has been the case, Bethesda is unable to disclose.
With the release of this news, however, it is not just the PlayStation 4 owners of Fallout 4 and Skyrim who are disappointed but also Bethesda who put significant time and effort to develop the mod support feature but only to get stopped from its actual release due to the disagreement of Sony.
The guys at GameSpot are also saying the same thing.
