Slightly Mad Studios’ Game Director Stephen Viljoen was quoted as saying that Project Cars 2 was will be running in native 4K and 60fps on Xbox One X yesterday which made people happy, but it turns out that is not the case.
“It’s news to me,” posted Slightly Mad’s Ian Bell on the GTPlanet forums when the quote surfaced. “Yup, this was a misquote. We’re running sub 60 FPS at 4K and we’ll probably always be unless we drop livetrack and a host of other things… We’ll probably upscale from something very reasonable.”
“We don’t like the term ‘locked’,” he added in reference to the frame rate. “It would put us in first party territory where chest beating is more important than a great experience. We’ll be 60 most of the time in normal racing and we’ll push the consoles to and beyond their limits for more interesting racing. Even if that means dropping a few frames.”
The specs for the PlayStation 4 Pro version of the game have not been revealed but you can bet they won’t be true 4K or 60FPS either.
