The resolution rumors of the Xbox One do not seem to be going away any time soon. After confirmations of 720p for the likes of Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty Ghosts, it looks like we now have solid evidence that one of Microsoft’s big guns in 2014 is going to be getting the 720p treatment as well.
Although you may not like to hear it, that game could be Titanfall – Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox One console exclusive, which will see a PC release but won’t be made available on any Sony console.
Both Respawn Entertainment and EA have failed to answer direct questions on what the final resolution of the game will be on Xbox One. We have all seen the amazing gameplay that Respawn has been showing off, but the chances of that gameplay being 1080p native on Xbox One had been put into doubt.
Fast forward to this week, as it looks like Mark Rubin, executive producer at Infinity Ward may have revealed a little information prematurely. When discussing the resolution of his own game Call of Duty Ghosts in relation to the Xbox One rumors, he had this to say:
“I don’t know [If PS4 is the easier to work with] but overall I do know that other companies have been saying that they’re also 720 on Xbox One – BF4 was 720, Titanfall has already said they’re going to be 720 on Xbox One so it seems to be the dominant direction at the moment, but so much can change.”
Correct us if we’re wrong, but has Rubin just revealed the information that Microsoft does not want anyone to find out until Titanfall is out on shelves? After all, we have only just found out the Xbox One resolution of BF4 after the game released, and the resolution of Call of Duty Ghosts on Xbox One, a few weeks before release.
Now that the information is out there, should this be considered a major shock or not? It does seem likely that 720p appears to be the popular choice for many Xbox One developers, even at this early stage. Get in touch with us below if you expected Titanfall to output at 1080p native on Xbox One.
