In not-so-shocking news, DICE has revealed that their upcoming current and next-gen FPS Battlefield 4 will once again not be supporting mods for the PC version.
Speaking with PC Gamer
, DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson has said that the team are always asked this question from the PC crowd, however has once again answered no. According to Troedsson DICE "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 percent."
"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 BF4 we don’t have any planned mod support, I have to be blunt about saying that. We don’t."
While Battlefield 4 won't have any mod support for the PC title, the general manager has said that DICE are looking to the future in regards to mod support. "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."
Battlefield 4 will be available on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in late October. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One titles have not been dated.
