Fallout 76 doesn't mark Bethesda departure from single-player games

Fallout 76 Will Stop Players Under Level 5 Being Killed in PvP

Howard assures that Bethesda games will all have focused mod support going forward, but now, "we still think there's a way to go there".

It seems extremely unlikely that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will ever receive the Creation Club feature on Switch, despite it being present on other consoles. Bethesda's studio head Todd Howard has now made it abundantly clear that isn't the case, during an interview with GamesIndustry.biz at Gamelab in Barcelona. "We would love to see it happen but it's not something we're actively doing".

Bethesda isn't actively working on mods for the Skyrim Switch version, according to a recent interview. Or, alternatively, if you just want to play with a specific group of friends then private servers could be a thing in the future too.

The Creation Club launched for Fallout 4 in September 2017 and Skyrim a couple months later.

Right now, Howard admits that Bethesda has done "nothing" because it's "on other things" such as Fallout Shelter for the Switch.

He further added, "We are still pushing on making that easily available to everybody, it definitely becomes this long-tail life of our games but if you look at the raw numbers it's still not as great as we'd like - the people who are consuming the mods".

Are you fussed about having mods in Skyrim?

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

Skyrim released on the Nintendo Switch in the middle of Fall last year, providing a convenient way to play Skyrim on the go and boosting the Switch's library for its first year in action. For starters, Fallout 76 is an online multiplayer survival game. However, the boss of Bethesda did promise that future games will get mod support and that includes Fallout 76.
