Bethesda: service-based games like Fallout 76 don’t mark the future

08 July 2018

Howard clarified that they would love to eventually see mods on the Switch, but now, that's not something the company is actively doing. Howard stated that the game's Switch version has "done really well", adding: "I'm surprised at how well it's done".

"They [the Switch Skyrim community] asked for mods", he said to Eurogamer, "they asked for Creation Club - 'When are we getting more stuff?'" "We would love to see it happen but it's not something we're actively doing".

But if you're hoping to use mods to let bears play lutes, or turn dragons into Thomas the Tank Engine on your Switch anytime soon, Bethesda chief Todd Howard has some bad news for you. But, at the end of the day, the Creation Club is just something we have to deal with. "We are still pushing on making that easily available to everybody", he said during his on-stage Gamelab talk with Geoff Keighley, host of The Game Awards. We've done a mix - people forget sometimes. Currently, Bethesda is doing nothing to fix the problem, as their attention is focused elsewhere, like the recently released Fallout Shelter on Switch. "But we still think there's a way to go there". Do you still find yourself hopping back into the world of Skyrim from time to time or has the title been played out for you?

Bethesda thus is still not paying any attention to mod support for Skyrim which is a sad piece of news for avid gamers.

Fallout 76 definitely wins the award for most divisive E3 2018 reveal.

Creation Club, an official interface for downloading and installing mods for Bethesda games on PC and consoles, launched on Fallout 4 in autumn 2017 and on Skyrim later that year. Being hopeful is all we can do right now.
