Destiny


 

There’s some bad news for Destiny fans: Destiny 2 won’t be able to run 60 frames per second on the PS4 or PS4 Pro.

Game director Luke Smith confirmed information on game’s frame rate to IGN. “It will not run at 60 [FPS] on the Pro,” Smith said. “I don’t want people to continue to hope, we’re going to be matter-of-fact about that stuff.”

Smith went on to explain that even the powerful PS4 Pro is lacking the “horsepower” to run Destiny 2‘s “rich physics simulation, with collision and players, networking, etc.” While the GPU is powerful enough to play the game in 4K, its CPU isn’t strong enough to consistently support the higher frame rate.

As a result, Destiny 2 will be locked to 30 FPS for PS4 and PS4 Pro players.

Over on the PC, the game will feature an uncapped frame rate, meaning that the game’s performance will be determined by each individual’s computer. As for the Xbox version of the game, Smith declined to comment—so we’ll have to wait and see whether Microsoft’s own beefed-up hardware revision, currently codenamed Project Scorpio, will be capable of running the game at a higher frame rate.

Destiny 2 releases on September 8th on consoles. The PC version does not yet have a release date.
