Vince Zampella has clarified a recent rumor suggesting that the Xbox One version of “Titanfall” will be running at a native 1080p. According to a report from Video Gamer of Feb. 27, the co-founder of Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that the first-person shooting video game would not be rendered at the aforesaid resolution.
The 1080p rumor came from a forum poster claiming that Abbie Heppe, the community manager at Respawn Entertainment, stated that the development team is aiming to boost the native resolution to 1080p at launch with patch updates. However, Vince Zampella quickly responded by saying that this won’t be the case.
The resolution for the Xbox One version of “Titanfall” has been a somewhat controversial subject. The video game was initially rumored to be running natively at 720p. Respawn Entertainment was able to increase the resolution during the beta to 792p while hinting that it may also get a boost to 900p in the final product.
Microsoft has been heavily criticized by not making the Xbox One as powerful from a graphical standpoint as the PS4 despite having the $100 more expensive product. As a result, several multiplatform games are running better on Sony’s new console when compared to the new Xbox platform.
“Titanfall” is hitting the Xbox One, as well as the PC on March 11th. The Xbox 360 port will be launching several weeks later on March 25th.
