In the resolution-gate war, publishers are finding it highly necessary to state their upcoming titles to be running at a full glorious 1080p.
Alex Hutchinson, Creative Director at Ubisoft, has said on Twitter that the studio is targeting 1080p and 30FPS for the PlayStation 4 version of Far Cry 4. He did not mention whether they have simply given up on the Xbox One version or if they will work on that platform afterwards.
Seeing that the game releases next month and they are still ‘targeting’ for that resolution on the PS4, it seems a pretty monstrous task to take on the Xbox One version in time for the game’s release.
The announcement comes at the heel of the studio’s decision to stick with 900p and 30FPS on both the PS4 and Xbox One for Assassin’s Creed: Unity.
Ubisoft’s first statement mentioned that they want to be neutral in the resolution-gate war and instead want to provide the same product across all platforms. Their decision wasn’t met well with PS4 owners.
Shortly after Ubisoft clarified their original statement and instead put the blame on the CPU of the consoles saing that it was prohibiting them from reaching maximum performance.
On the other side of the fence, EA announced that Dragon Age: Inquisition will be boasting full 1080p on the PS4, whereas the Xbox One will have to do with 900p.
Far Cry 4 releases next month for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
