Prospective Xbox One X owners will be disappointed to learn that Destiny 2 will be locked to 30 FPS on the console.

Bungie’s Luke Smith confirmed to Geoff Keighley that the game will run at 30 FPS on the world’s most powerful console, just like it does on Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro. Many Xbox fans had hoped that the X would be able to push the game to 60 FPS, but, as was pointed out by Digital Foundry, while the console’s GPU is more powerful, its CPU isn’t that much stronger than the PS4 Pro’s.

Smith didn’t provide a reason for the lock on Xbox One X, but last month, Bungie said that the PlayStation 4 Pro’s CPU was preventing the game from hitting 60 FPS due to not having the power to run the sequel’s “rich physics simulation, with collision and players, networking, etc.”

The PC version of the game will have an unlocked frame rate.

Destiny 2 officially launches September 6th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with a PC release to follow on October 24th.
