A lot has surfaced online in relation to Call of Duty Black Ops 3 lately (or should I say leaked), but now it is the game makers who are divulging small bits and pieces of information with the public.
Mark Lamia, the head of Treyarch Studios had an interview recently at Gameswelt where resolutions and frame rates were the topic of discussion.
Lamia firstly iterated that making the game run on 60FPS is going to be their main focus in the development of Call of Duty Black Ops 3. However, discussing Xbox One and PlayStation 4 separately on the same fronts brought out some uncertainties.
Based on the translation that we have got for the interview, the Xbox One version might not run at 1080p and 60FPS!
Here’s the excerpt from the interview, read up and tell us what you think:
Much work is still to be done, obviously, just like with the console versions. Standing firm, however, Lamia said the focus of the team is a frame rate of 60 frames per second.
The PlayStation 4 currently does it with a resolution of 1080p. Regarding the Xbox One, Mark sidestepped the question a little by emphasizing that the final results are not clear yet. He reiterated, however, that the frame rate has the higher priority.
We are hoping this was just because at the time being they are in the process of getting there, but looking at the history of games released on both the consoles together, it wouldn’t be something new.
