Ian Bell, CEO at Slightly Mad Studios, has confirmed that Project CARS 2 will not run in true 4K resolutions on both Xbox One X and PS4Pro. While the team is targeting for 60fps, it will upscale from something very reasonable in 4K on consoles. As such, the only platform that will offer a true 4K/60fps experience will be the PC (provided you have the hardware for such a thing).
As Ian Bell said regarding a comment suggesting that Project CARS 2 will be running in 4K and with 60fps on Xbox One X:
“Yup, this was a misquote. We’re running sub 60 FPS at 4K and we’ll probably always be unless we drop livetrack and a host of other things… We’ll probably upscale from something very reasonable.”
As said, Slightly Mad Studios targets a 60fps, though as Ian Bell said there might be some framerate drops here and there.
“We don’t like the term ‘locked’. It would put us in first party territory where chest beating is more important than a great experience. We’ll be 60 most of the time in normal racing and we’ll push the consoles to and beyond their limits for more interesting racing. Even if that means dropping a few frames.”
Which sounds reasonable to say the least. Ultimately, what this means is that the PC platform will be the only one offering true 4K resolutions and constant 60fps (again, provided your hardware is able to achieve something like that).
This also falls in line with what we’ve said about multi-platform games on Xbox One X (that they will be not running in true 4K resolutions)!
