According to Bethesda’s VP of Marketing, Pete Hines, it is difficult to add fan-requested features now since Fallout 4 was already done by the time studio announced it.

In an interview with GameSpot; Hines confirmed that the studio is now hard at work on fixing bugs, improving FPS, and polishing the game in general. He also confirmed that the game was already done by the time Bethesda announced it in terms of the features that were going to be in the game:

Let’s be honest, [right now] it doesn’t matter what anybody wants for a feature in Fallout 4. The game is basically done. It was by and large done before we announced it, in terms of the features going in. You’re not adding new features in May, June, July in the year you’re releasing; you’re trying to get everything fixed.

Continuing, he said that the studio actively went through all the fan feedback on Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim forums to make Fallout 4 a better game:

All of that stuff is important. A good developer knows how to take all that and figure out how to address is. You can do anything, you just can’t do everything. So you have to be able to prioritize and figure out what are the big wins, what are the challenges you’re going to tackle, and what are the things you just don’t have the bandwidth to take on.

This is the reason why Hines also said in another interview that Fallout 4 mods for Xbox One and PC will not available on launch. To read up more, head over to the post!
