Bethesda Would "Love" Skyrim Mods on Switch

"People, they're on other things". Howard clarified that they would love to eventually see mods on the Switch, but now, that's not something the company is actively doing.

Skyrim has become the butt of all jokes in The Elder Scrolls series thanks to Bethesda endlessly re-releasing the game, most recently seeing the title land on Amazon's Alexa. 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.

"They asked for mods", he replied, "they asked for Creation Club - 'When are we getting more stuff?'"

In the interview with Multiplayer.it, when asked how Bethesda will stop spawn killers hanging around outside the vault, Howard responded saying, "There are several tricks we are implementing to prevent the other players from doing exactly the things you describe".


"It's definitely a lighter touch, which surprisingly worked very well for us in Fallout Shelter", Howard continues. "We would love to see it happen but it's not something we're actively doing".

To put it simply, Bethesda is aware that Switch fans want to see mods in their portable version of Skyrim, but it isn't something that the studio is focusing on. "I'm surprised at how well it's done".

"It doesn't mark the future", Howard said.

So there you go, if you want The Elder Scrolls VI to be on the shelves quicker stop buying Skyrim on every device you own. And there are no plans to bring it to the Nintendo Switch at this juncture. In any case, Fallout 76 will have Creation Club mod support when it releases on November 14th this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. Being hopeful is all we can do right now.
