DICE has confirmed what many of you no doubt predicted; the PC version of Battlefield 4 will not offer mod support.
Speaking with PC Gamer, DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson said DICE is always being asked for mod support, and 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.”
Although it’s not something that will happen for Battlefield 4, the developer is “thinking about” mods in the future.
“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 is coming to PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in late October and early November. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions have not been dated.
