Forza Horizon 2 will run at 1080p and 30 frames per second on Xbox One, according to creative director Ralph Fulton.
“I think what we did on Horizon was demonstrate that, and this is really important, a locked frame rate that’s absolutely solid and never drops is the most important thing for our game,” he told IGN. “30 [frames-per-second] actually enables us to realize that experience.
“I think I remember that’s always a hot-button topic, until a game comes out and people go, ‘Oh, this actually really works.’ But 1080p was an absolute must for us; it’s the benchmark for next-gen.”
Earlier this week it was confirmed that Playground Games is only working on the Xbox One version of the game using the Forza 5 engine, while the Xbox 360 version is in the hands of Sumo Digital and uses the original Forza Horizon engine.
Forza Horizon 2 is due this fall. It will feature a dynamic weather system and a modified version of Forza 5’s Drivatar system.
