In an interview with PCGamesN , PC Gamer’s own Dan Higby also reiterated that PC gamers are “disappointed” that the PC version will not include mods. “The PC version of our games will not have mods,” he says. “I think there are games that are going to really take advantage of mods. It’s something we would have to play out before we could make any definitive statements about that. We’ve talked about getting mods into the console editions, but it could change if we got asked.” That being the case, Higby could mean the PS4 and Xbox One will not have mods. One of the reasons Higby thinks PC gamers dislike mods is that they do not have a voice in the development of these games, making it difficult to make changes and maintain compatibility with old mods that have to be downloaded for new ones. If PC gamers felt the current PC platform was not well maintained, it could be an easier decision for a developer. “We already have the issues of support,” he says. “This one is going to be tougher.” We’ve reached out to both Electronic Arts and Ubisoft for comment on Cyberspies’ PC build, but I’m waiting to hear back before I reach out to them individually. PC gamers are unlikely to be particularly happy the third-party mod support does not transfer over to PC, but it’s tough to complain when it is so easy a console-owner can make their own version. It’s also tough to get a straight answer out of Ubisoft’s Erik Johnson, since he can’t comment on the PC version and all we know is that the PS4 and Xbox One versions will “not” feature mods. If PC gamers get angry over the lack of mods, though, will they be happy even if the game is no longer on PC? This article may contain links to online retail stores.
