DICE has confirmed that Battlefield 4 will not contain any mod support, a feature that most of you probably knew wasn’t coming. Speaking with PC Gamer, DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson said DICE is always being asked for mod support in their games, and that he understands why players want it.
“We also would like to see more player-created content, but we would never do something like this if we feel we couldn’t do this 100%,” he said. “That means we need to have the right tools available, we need to have the right security around this regarding what parts of the engine we let loose, so to say. So for Battlefield 4 we don’t have any planned mod support, I have to be blunt about saying that. We don’t.”
There definitely won’t be any mod support in Battlefield 4, but the studio is currently thinking about mods for the future games. “When we think about Battlefield as a franchise, moving forward, it’s a big franchise. And we’re talking about this, almost as strategies for the company – where are we going, what are we trying to do with the franchise, et cetera. And this is definitely one of the areas that we have been discussing quite a bit,” Troedsson added.
Battlefield 4 will be releasing on October 29th for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. Next gen dates will arrive as soon as the respective systems receive their release dates.
