During an interview with GameSpot post-E3 2017, Jeremy Dunham of Psyonix has confirmed that Rocket League will run at 4K resolution with 60 frames per second on Xbox One X.
In a recent interview with Gamespot, the developer Psyonix has confirmed that Rocket League will be able to run in 4K resolution and 60fps on Xbox One X, the premium console that Microsoft will launch on 7 November at the price of $499.
The title had already been listed by Microsoft as part of the list of Xbox One X Enhanced titles, and then it was reasonable to assume the news, but now we have “official” confirmation by the indie developer.
In addition, on Nintendo Switch comes the additional clarification that the 720p and 60fps will be maintained even in not only docked mode but also in split-screen mode, without any drop in frame rate.
Remember that the two versions will benefit from the cross-play online platform with each other and with PC users, unlike that for PS4: Sony has indeed called itself out from the cross-play, as well as for Minecraft.
Speaking to Eurogamer, the PlayStation Global Sales and Marketing Head, Jim Ryan, has spoken about the lack of cross-play: “It’s certainly not a profound philosophical stance we have against this. We’ve done it in the past. We’re always open to conversations with any developer or publisher who wants to talk about it. Unfortunately it’s a commercial discussion between ourselves and other stakeholders, and I’m not going to get into the detail of that on this particular instance. And I can see your eyes rolling.”
“Yeah. We’ve got to be mindful of our responsibility to our install base. Minecraft – the demographic playing that, you know as well as I do, it’s all ages but it’s also very young. We have a contract with the people who go online with us, that we look after them and they are within the PlayStation curated universe. Exposing what in many cases are children to external influences we have no ability to manage or look after, it’s something we have to think about very carefully,” Jim Ryan further stated.
