If gamers go ‘too far’ next PC Final Fantasy might not feature mods

The game director of Final Fantasy XV has said that the way modders approach the PC release will affect mods in future entries in the series.

Speaking to PCGamer, Hajima Tabata said that if things go “too far” then the moddability of future Final Fantasy games.

When asked for his thoughts on nude mods or anything in that salacious area, the developer said that these are not “a good thing”; yet he does not want to restrict the creativity of the modding community.

So, basically, don't make nude mods of the game and then expect Final Fantasy XVI to feature modding capabilities. And don't even *start* with your nonsense about 'censorship in games'. 

The PC release of Final Fantasy XV was announced at the start of Gamescom. This version is set to launch in early 2018, and comes with Nvidia’s GameWorks tech built in. The fact that Square Enix is even letting gamers mod the title itself is somewhat surprising – so fingers crossed they don't get burned.
