Last year, the Xbox One version of Call of Duty: Ghosts launched at a slight disadvantage to the PlayStation 4 release. It was noticeable that the game was running at a lower resolution on the Xbox One, being upscaled from 720p to 1080p. The PlayStation 4 version of Call of Duty: Ghosts looked better at a higher resolution on PS4, but this year, with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Xbox One owners will be in for a higher native resolution experience, apparently.
Michael Condrey of Sledgehammer Games has confirmed what has been speculated for some time. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will release at a higher resolution than Ghosts on Xbox One. What that number will be is anyone’s guess, but analysis of the game’s early footage suggest that it will be in the ballpark of 900p native.
Condrey simply told fans “Higher on Xbox One than Ghost,” via Twitter, when asked about the resolution for Advanced Warfare on Xbox One.
We’ll have to wait and see just what the final product brings, but it’s looking like the Xbox One and PS4 will get closer to parity for Call of Duty this year. The gap has been narrowing as of late when it comes to resolution and performance between the two consoles. Destiny, recently released on both the Xbox One and PS4 and it’s one of the first third party titles to look nearly identical on both platforms.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is slated for a November 4th release on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The “new-gen” and PC versions are being developed by Sledgehammer Games, while the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions are being developed by High Moon Studios.
