The release of mod support for the PlayStation 4 version of Fallout 4 is still stuck in limbo. A tweet from the franchise’s social media account confirmed that developer Bethesda Game Studios is in talks with Sony to bring the feature to PS4, but the delayed update remains without a release date.
"We’re working w/ Sony on Fallout 4 Mod support for PS4," the tweet reads. "The process is still under evaluation. As soon as we learn more, we will share news."
An official delay for the Creation Kit feature came at the end of June from the Bethesda Twitter account. No further news has come from the developer’s official channels since then; an update introducing mod support in beta had been pegged for a June release.
That launch was pushed back after Bethesda revealed there were problems with mods on PS4. Players could upload mods for the console beginning June 15, but related issues included lack of sound file support and a storage limit capped at 900 MB. In an update back then, Bethesda said it was "working with Sony to increase this limit."
Pete Hines, Bethesda’s vice president of marketing, provided a recent update that also suggested that Fallout 4 players on PS4 would have to keep waiting. Although he didn’t call out Sony’s specific involvement in the delay, Hines suggested that the silence on Fallout 4 mod support’s PS4 release was out of Bethesda’s hands.
@731783bb5ec1481 i don't disagree. we have explained that to "others" so we can get/share an update. so far it hasn't worked.— Pete Hines (@DCDeacon) July 22, 2016
Fallout 4 players interested in modding the game on console can do so in the Xbox One version. Fallout 4 has also featured mod support on Windows PC since spring. Players on PC are required to use a Steam account to upload creations following a spate of unauthorized mods making it onto Bethesda.net. New downloadable content, like the recent "Vault-Tec Workshop," continues to launch on all three platforms simultaneously, at least.
