Skyrim Switch mod support is not looking likely right now

Skyrim Switch mod support is not looking likely right now

Skyrim is on everything, PS3, PlayStation VR, Xbox One, Switch, Alexa, toilets, fridges, you name it, and it looks like that trend will continue and it's all your fault.

During a talk at Gamelab last week, Bethesda Game Studios' head honcho Todd Howard said, "Skyrim Switch has a big community that we haven't supported the way we'd like". But while it sounds great, its needing to be policed for consoles means Creation Club offers a more limited selection than on PC, where the gates are wide open.

Valve revealed its most played titles throughout 2018 so far, led by multiplayer games such as Dota 2, GTA V and PUBG which all managed to pull over 100,000 simultaneous players. "People, they're on other things".

The primary reasoning behind a lack of action over mod support for Skyrim Switch is that the team Bethesda has put in charge of Switch development is focusing on other projects, primarily Fallout Shelter.

Howard went on to say that he and the studio want to bring mod support to Skyrim on Switch, but it is not something they are actively working on. Despite this, the company now has no plans to bring its Creation Club mod system to the console. When asked about what they're doing about the situation, he said: "Right now we're doing nothing". Our Switch group did Fallout Shelter ... and that's done really well.

Quizzed if mods would be coming to Skyrim on Switch, Howard replied: 'We are not actively doing that.

"It doesn't mark the future", said Howard (via Twinfinite), adding that the company has already launched a bunch of games belonging to completely different genres and aiming for totally opposite audiences. Do you think Bethesda is serious about still doing traditional single-player RPGs?
