Square Enix appears to be ready to support modders in the PC version of Final Fantasy XV. And while back in August Hajime Tabata claimed that nude mods are left up to the moral sense of all the players, he went ahead and re-stated – during this year’s PAX West event – that such mods will most likely have a negative affect on the moddability of future Final Fantasy games.
When asked whether Square Enix will stop supporting mods in future Final Fantasy games in case there are nude mods in Final Fantasy XV, Tabata told PCGamer that while this is up to Square Enix’s CEO, this kind of mods will most likely have a negative affect:
“If things are taken a little too far. So if there’s anything we can say, it’s try to be as controlled as possible.”
For Final Fantasy XV, Square Enix does not want to restrict modders in any way, something that is… well… a pleasant surprise. And to be honest, we don’t need nude mods as we can get some pretty amazing projects (after all, Square Enix plans to release a powerful level editor too). Final Fantasy XV may very well turn into the new Skyrim when it comes to mods, and the possibilities could be endless.
But then again, we are almost certain that some modders will release such mods in order to attract the attention of the media. And this is precisely why we won’t bother with such mods when the game releases.
Final Fantasy XV is currently scheduled for an early 2018 release!
