Mark Rubin, Executive Producer at Infinity Ward, earlier today confirmed that Call of Duty: Ghosts’ resolution on the Xbox One is 720p upscaled to 1080p. This news comes after the particular interest (read: heated arguments everywhere) over final specs and resolution of the game on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Posting on TwitLonger, he specifically stated that the PlayStation 4 will run Call of Duty: Ghosts at native 1080p, compared to the Xbox One’s upscaled resolution.
“Hey, been on the road last couple weeks so haven’t had a chance to update, but wanted to confirm that for Xbox One we’re 1080p upscaled from 720p. And, we’re native 1080p on PS4. We optimized each console to hit 60 FPS and the game looks great on both. Still on the road, but glad to see the great reception to Extinction. Can’t wait for next week’s launch.“
If resolution will make or break a game for you, then this might come as heavy news, knowing that the only thing keeping the Xbox One’s resolution on par with the PS4′s is upscaling technology. The good news, however, is that both consoles will run at a smooth 60 FPS, so the gameplay itself won’t take a hit.
Call of Duty: Ghosts releases on November 5th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and the Wii U. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will launch alongside their respective consoles.
