Infinity Ward has confirmed that Call of Duty: Ghosts will run at a different resolution on the Xbox One and PS4.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will only run in native 1080p Full HD on the PS4. The Xbox One will be output at Full 1080p HD through upscaling software, but natively will run at 720p HD (1280 x 720p) at rendering level.
“For Xbox One we’re 1080p upscaled from 720p. We’re native 1080p on PS4”, confirmed Rubin.
The new COD game will be released next week on November 5 in the UK for Xbox 360 and PS3 and will be a launch title for both the PS4 and Xbox One when they launch on November 29 and 22 respectively.
“We optimised each console to hit 60fps and the game looks great on both,” he added.
The Call of Duty: Ghosts news comes after EA Games confirmed Battlefield 4 will also suffer a similar resolution disadvantage on the Xbox One.
Battlefield 4 will render at 900p HD (1600 x 900p) on PS4 but only 720p HD on the Xbox One.
