The arrival of Project Scorpio is imminent, and although we keep asking ourselves what will be the exact power of the console, we also want to know which games will take advantage of the virtues of the new system.
Fortunately, Blizzard Entertainment seems to be interested in using the power of Project Scorpio and PlayStation 4 Pro to improve Overwatch, because according to Jeff Kaplan, game director, they are always interested in improving the visual aspects of the shooter.
“With both the advancements that Sony and Microsoft have made to their platforms, we’re super-eager to support in whatever way we can,” Kaplan said in an interview with IB Times. “We take kind of a wait and see approach. Our engine team loves doing things like supporting. Any time we can make the game look better, they like supporting it. Obviously we’re supporting 4K on PC already, so it’s something the game is capable of doing.”
The director commented that they are willing to improve the game on the consoles as long as it maintains its integrity and does not require some technical cost that is prohibitive. “As long as we don’t break the game in some other way, or incur some technical cost that is prohibitive, we would obviously try to go along with the advancements, and be very supportive of advancements on all of our platforms,” he said.
So it seems that it will be a matter of time to see the improvements that Overwatch could receive for Project Scorpio and PlayStation 4 Pro.
