HDR Support For Shadow Warrior 2 On Consoles Is Highly Unlikely

Shadow Warrior 2 launched for PC with great critical and commercial success and the developers are now working to bring the game to consoles. As the Xbox One S, PlayStation 4 Slim and PlayStation 4 Pro feature HDR support, many gamers want to know if the game would support it for the consoles.

Speaking with Wccftech, Flying Wild Hog’s Tadeusz Zielinski said that HDR support for Shadow Warrior 2 on consoles is not likely as they don’t have enough time to implement it. The game will also support the upgraded PlayStation 4 Pro and according to Zielinski, it is a beast.

PS4Pro is a great upgrade over base PS4. the CPU didn’t get a big upgrade, but GPU is a beast. It also has some interesting hardware features, which help with achieving 4K resolution without resorting to brute force.

He also discussed the half-precision (16 bit) instructions feature of PlayStation 4 Pro saying that with this feature they can get a significant performance boost without sacrificing the image quality.

Yes. Half precision (16 bit) instructions are a great feature. They were used some time ago in Geforce FX, but didn’t manage to gain popularity and were dropped. It’s a pity because most operations don’t need full float (32 bit) precision and it’s a waste to use full float precision for them. With half precision instructions we could gain much better performance without sacrificing image quality.

Shadow Warrior 2 is a first-person shooter developed by Flying Wild Hog and will launch sometime in 2017 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
