Howard's word highlight a more diverse game line-up, where single-player games like Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield are produced alongside Fallout Shelter and Elder Scrolls: Blades. "People, they're on other things".

"Skyrim Switch has a big community that we haven't supported the way we'd like", said Howard during his presentation. The reported futher inquired: "Will you bring mods to Skyrim on Switch?" to which he replied that "We are not actively doing that, we would love to see it happen but it's not something we're actively doing". This includes the Creation Club kka Bethesda's version of paid mods. You can view the interview with Todd Howard in full on Eurogamer!

"They asked for mods, they asked for Creation Club - 'When are we getting more stuff?" The head honcho of Bethesda was interviewed recently and it was found that mods will definitely not be arriving on the Switch platform. "I was forced to meet with a lot of "monetisation experts" during Fallout Shelter that didn't work for us". 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. When you first start the game you can chill a little and build yourself up before having to take on other players.

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

Mod support has been - and will be - a fundamental part of Bethesda Game Studios games going forward.

The idea of slaying dragons in Skyrim on the bus - or on the loo - used to be nothing more than a pipe dream - but last November, Bethesda Game Studios pulled it off and released the fifth Elder Scrolls game on Nintendo Switch. Even the single-player focused Bethesda is trying out the format with the multiplayer-focused Fallout 76. Being hopeful is all we can do right now.
