Fallout 4 and Skyrim, both are amazing games by Bethesda Softworks. Both of these games have a long history. Both games initially came out in the 90s. But as the world got advanced and with the introduction of great new technologies, these games got even better with user-made mods.
Both Fallout & Skyrim are great, but after playing for a while some people may get bored. But with mods, you can easily enjoy the game for a very long time. Unfortunately, mods are only available on PC. So, to bring mods to Xbox One and PS4, Bethesda made a move.
Earlier this year, Bethesda announced that they’re going to be bringing mod support on PS4 and Xbox One versions of Fallout 4 and Skyrim. The mods are working just fine on the Xbox One, but on PS4, there are issues.
Bethesda Cancells Fallout 4 and Skyrim Mod Support for PS4
During Bethesda’s beta testing of these mods on consoles, the PS4 had serious issues. Many, including us, hoped that they fix these issues and bring proper mod support to the PS4 console. However, the company recently announced that the mod support for Fallout 4 and Skyrim has been cancelled. In a blog post, the company said:
“Sony has informed us they will not approve user mods the way they should work.”
It seems like they cancelled the program because Sony did not approve it. The company did say that they will “provide an update if the situation changes”.
Microsoft’s Major Nelson, after seeing the situation, tweeted:

So there you have it, guys. The mod support for Fallout 4 and Skyrim: Special Edition on PS4 has been cancelled. It’s a strange move from Sony, though. Why didn’t they approve the mods? Bethesda did work hard on this project.
“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.“
There is still a chance that Sony might change their decision as it seems like Bethesda is still in talks with them. For more, stay tuned to GeeksULTD.
