Bethedsa executive producer Todd Howard has said that user generated content for Elder Scrolls: Skyrim could reach consoles.
Howard explained to Edge magazine that while the Creation Kit tools for the game will only ever be available on PC, the user-generated content made with them also runs on the console versions.
“It works on all the consoles,” he said. “As far as the 360 and PS3, right now there’s not an avenue for us to make that available, but we’d very much like to find a way. We have talked to Microsoft and Sony, and so there’s a chance it might happen one day, [but] I don’t see it happening for release.
“We’d like to see it happen, because it works, it’s how we made the game. I think it’s something really cool about what we do, but 90 per cent of our audience is on the consoles, so 90 per cent of our audience can’t even see this thing. So if we can solve that we’d like to.”
This news comes after the recent release of Portal 2 which allows users on PS3 to play against PC and Mac users. Could the line between PC and consoles be set to blur even further in the future? It does seem that way.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be released for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 on November 11.
