Sunset Overdrive is the next Xbox One game to run below a 1080p resolution.
After the exclusive reveal in EDGE Magazine, EDGE have reported than Sunset Overdrive “currently” runs at a lower resolution than 1080p, but does not go on to specify what resolution it does run at. Insomniac CEO Ted Price has commented on the resolution, stating:
“We’re still working on optimising and we’re going to continue to do that,” he told EDGE. “We can get into all the technical stuff later. This is going to be a [question] for every game that comes out. People will be counting pixels. For us, it’s about the vision: you saw it, you played it. It’s about creating a world.”
“Currently” is the key word in this situation, as Insomniac has plenty of time to optimise the game to hit 1080p before the game launches later this year. Personally, I couldn’t care less. If the game is fun and I have a blast playing it, I’m not going to be worried about a few less pixels, but nevertheless, the information is here for anybody who is interested.
