Earlier this month Bethesda openly announced that Fallout 4 PS4 Mod Support has been cancelled because of Sony. Now since that announcement there has been debates over the internet, and some even speculate that Bethesda has made a exclusivity deal with Microsoft which is the reason why there is no mod support for PlayStation 4.
Bethesda had a marketing agreement with Microsoft, but so far no one thought that there could be chances that delaying Fallout 4 PS4 mod support could be the part of the agreement.
A Twitter user tweeted to Pete Hines that Bethesda is wrongfully accusing Sony for not being able to deliver mod support for PS4, as Bethesda has an exclusivity deal with Microsoft. To this Pete Hines responded that it is not true, and Bethesda would have released the Fallout 4 PS4 mod support if it was up to them.
@CryoMedia_ that is absolutely not true. We would have released mods on PS4 some time ago if it was up to us. We were told no.

Fallout 4 PS4 mod support was supposed to be released back in June, but it got delayed, so earlier this month Bethesda finally revealed the reason behind it.
After months of discussion with Sony, we regret to say that while we have long been ready to offer mod support on PlayStation 4, Sony has informed us they will not approve user mods the way they should work: where users can do anything they want for either Fallout 4 or Skyrim Special Edition.
While the Mod support for Fallout 4 n PlayStation 4 is not going to release, Bethesda as assured fans that they are working on some form of mods for both Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition on PlayStation 4.
What do you think? Did Bethesda rally did it because of the exclusivity deal or Sony is the main problem? Let us know in the comments.
