Yes, that's sad news for everyone of us waiting for the appearance of ladders in Bethesda games. Todd Howard explains why.
Howard explained the primary reason for not being able to include ladders into environments is due to their engine, saying ladders caused problems for character AI.
"One day, we tried to figure out why we wanted ladders so bad because we don't really need them. It just felt like we're game development pussies because we can't do ladders."
