PlayStation 4 (PS4) users continue the waiting game with regard to the release of “Fallout 4” mods for the console. While the specifics of the delay have not yet been disclosed publicly, a couple of new hints may have been revealed by no less than Bethesda vice president Peter Hines.
In a couple of conversations over at his official Twitter account, the game developer refused to comment more on the ongoing delay so as not to compromise the already frustrating situation. “Sorry, but i’m not going to do that. nor risk further delays than we’ve already had by saying something. when i have info, I’ll share,” he wrote, in response to a fan who asked for an update. Despite this, Hines was still able to let out a few juicy tidbits which understandably were dissected by “Fallout 4” gamers who are thirsting for any kind of update.
In a series of tweets, he said, “we continue to try and get an update so we can share something. we still haven’t gotten one,” in response to another query. “When told about the delay’s negative effect on the company’s reputation, he added, “i don’t disagree. we have explained that to ‘others’ so we can get/share an update. so far it hasn’t worked.” He admitted that it is also quite frustrating on their end not knowing what is really happening with the “Fallout 4” PS4 mods.
When asked if the unknown subject from his previous tweet was referring to Sony, Hines neither confirmed nor denied the suspicion. Instead he tweeted a cagey statement saying, “i’m not going to get into specifics. if i was able to have an open dialog and explain what’s up i would have long ago.”
Meanwhile, the mods for the Xbox One and PC are not necessarily without any glitches. Despite being already out there for players to use, they continue to hit snags, making the quality of the gameplay experience decrease significantly. Bethesda has also acknowledged these problems and said, “We are investigating issues reported with Fallout 4 Mods both in-game and on the mods site.” The studio also advised players to “stay tuned for updates.”
