A few rumors popped up on NeoGAF today claiming that Call of Duty: Ghosts will only run at 720p on Xbox One due to limitations of the Xbox One console. This appears to be general trend as many other games(Ryse, Killer Instinct) will only support between 720 and 900p on the Xbox One, while the game will run 1080p on PS4.
At this point, there is no official word on whether these rumors are true or just some false information, but it begs to question as to many different things. If you remember back in June, Infinity Ward’s Mark Rubin told Eurogamer that Ghosts will run in 1080p on both next-gen consoles, we’re wondering if anything has changed in development though due to these new rumors. First, all the Ghosts gameplay thus far has been PC gameplay with an Xbox One controller; we haven’t actually seen Xbox One footage. If you’ve been watching IGN’s coverage of Squads this week, we got confirmation and a look at the PS4 version at 1080p, as Sony mandates all games run at that quality.
Albert Penello, Xbox One Lead Planner, responded to these claims, but he didn’t deny or confirm the 720p quality.
I’ve seen COD: Ghosts running on Xbox One. It looks f’n amazing. Wait for real footage, then judge for yourself.
