Overkill are intending to squeeze the most out of both the PS4 and Xbox One in terms of performance, but if they can push one of the consoles further than the other, they will.
Producer of Payday 2: Crimewave Edition, Almir Listo, has explained “It would be unfair of me to say that they’re going to be identical, because hypothetically speaking we can make the PS4 make better stuff than the Xbox One does, then why shouldn’t we do that? If we can take it up a notch, improve the frame rate a bit or whatever, why wouldn’t we do that?”
Due to the extra power of the latest consoles, Listo is hoping that the remaster will “feel completely different” for those players who are used to 720p/30fps. The current-gen release will boast an improved frame rate and full 1080p.
The communities for each platform have been very vocal in the past with regards to the performance of each machine and this decision by Overkill may see some backlash. Listo continued “Obviously we’re aiming for parity between the platforms, but then again each platform has its own challenges and improvements from the last-generation,”
Payday 2: Crimewave Edition is set to release on PS4 and Xbox One in June.
