Rumor – Titanfall on Xbox One Might Get Upgraded to 1080p on Launch

MP1st - Titanfall might be getting a resolution boost on the Xbox One shortly after its launch on March 11.


In response to Twitter inquires, Respawn Entertainment CEO Vince Zampella has denied the rumor that Titanfall will be 1080p on the Xbox One at launch. Aw, snap!

The story is too old to be commented.

It's a lie. They're trying to build more hype. If this was going to happen, it'd happen from day one.

No one should ever trust EA, far less a source that claims to have close ties to it.

Nah, I don't think it will be 1080p just more rumors to have something to fight about later. The beta was superb at 792p or whatever; games are not just about res and graphics. We've already seen res is not most important in regards to "visuals" and definitely "gameplay", there's a 900p exclusive that looks better than anything else on a console, there are 1080p games that play like a basic ps2 level platformer and still cost $60, so let the pixel counters count, hopefully those kind will be holding hands amongst themselves, still counting, lol while I play the hell out of Titanfall on my X1.

I don't think it will be 1080p either.....if the beta had framerate dips into the 30's at 792p...then bumping the res up to 1080p would make the framerate unplayable.

It would be great....but no, i don't see this happening. In the words of Respawn...."framerate is king". They won't compromise the framerate even further just to reach 1080p...and so they shouldn't.

Sure, sure, dude. In your dreams!

There are those that want the most for their money and xbone is not that. Pay 100.00 for less is stupid just like ms hoped gamers would be when the said you have to take the nsa kinect, you can't trade used games, you have to be online, and we're doing it all for a whopping 499.99!!!! You'll love it!!!!! If you don't then get yourself a 360

alexkoepp1275d ago

Game is super fun. It's fun at 720p, if true it'll be fun at 1080p. Simple as that, really doesn't matter.

u got owned1275d ago

highly doubt it, maybe 900p but 1080p hmmm... don't count on it.

Eonjay1275d ago

This is getting dumb and I blame Respawn. They should just say what it is. But they wont so we can keep talking about it. Seriously, this is why I respect Kojima. He was like BOOM this is what it is. End of story.

TomShoe1275d ago

It's possible, but I don't see what the point is. The XBOs upscaler was just going to output at 1080p (not native) anyways. Pushing the resolution would make the textures crappier, so why would you do that?

SmielmaN1275d ago

If it was going to 1080p MS and respawn would be trumpeting it from the rooftops. This is PR hype to make ppl talk. It's working, but if it was true the developer and MS would yelling it at us with a megaphone. Don't believe it

vulcanproject1275d ago (Edited 1275d ago )

I seriously doubt the game will run any higher resolution than the beta because it would take a vast improvement in performance to manage it.

Sometimes I wonder if the best solution to stop people moaning is to have selectable resolution/performance.

You can have 1408 x 792 averaging near 60FPS, or you can have 1600 x 900 and locked solid to 30FPS. Two modes.

Then have the game collect data when it's online and see who actually goes for the higher resolution.

It might settle the argument, because I don't think many playing an online shooter would give up the framerate. Be interesting, anyway

darthv721275d ago

It will be 1080p, the scaler in the XB1 says hi.

I didnt say "native" though.

VENOMACR12271274d ago

Maybe I'm the only person, but I really could careless if its 1080 or 792. Of course I'd prefer 1080 lol but the game is fun to play and to me that's the selling point for this game.

"Rumor – Titanfall on Xbox One Might Get Upgraded to 1080p on Launch"

Why? MS fanboys claim they dont care about res and claim framerate is king. So Respwan instead of worrying about upping the res, work on upping the framerate so it doesnt dip to the 30's. Make it 720p or sub720p if you have to, to achieve that. And dont worry cuz MS fanboys dont care about res anyways.

@ 4show, who i think is just an alternate account for PowerVR

Like imt558 said, "in your dreams" kid. Ghosts on the X1 looks better and performs than Titanfall

SilentNegotiator1274d ago (Edited 1274d ago )

"there's a 900p exclusive that looks better than anything else on a console"

Really? How long can people live in denial?

danthegamerfiend1274d ago

Im with venomacr1227 who cares what the resolution will be. As long as it doesnt affect the gameplay and overall fun of the game. Why does it matter. I know i will be enjoying the shit out of this game when it comes and resolution will be a thing of the past. For anyone to say that Ghosts runs better then this game, needs to sober up from whatever crazy juice they are drinking.

it's too hard believe because you think something like this would of been announced already since the release of the game is so close.

bleedsoe9mm1275d ago (Edited 1275d ago )

what if it depends if ms gets the update out on time and respawn doesn't want to promise things that it doesn't have control over

cozomel1274d ago

"what if"

what if its not?

brich2331275d ago

If Ubisoft was able to do it with Assassins Creed on PS4, than respawn will be able to do it for their game also.

starchild1275d ago

It's possible, but fairly unlikely.

GarrusVakarian1275d ago (Edited 1275d ago )

Lol, what? It doesn't work like that...different game, different devs, different system entirely.

AC4 on PS4 before it was patched ran at locked 30fps 900p....obviously Ubisoft thought the PS4 could handle a bump up to 1080p....and it did, it runs at locked 30fps at 1080p.

But if Titanfall is dipping into the 30's at 792p....then why would Respawn up the res to 1080p? It would be an unnecessary addition and one that would further hinder the framerate. They 'could' do it....but they shouldn't. Framerate should be king in games like these....Respawn said that themselves-

"Digital Foundry: 1080p60 on Xbox One?

Drew McCoy: We'll see how performance goes. Frame-rate is king."

loulou1275d ago

but everyone should trust you allformats/dedicatedtogamers right??

i dont think that it will be 1080p either though

dantesparda1274d ago

so wait,... should we trust you then? Just saying.

Edsword1275d ago (Edited 1275d ago )

It would be ridiculous for MS(or respawn) to wait until they launch the game and then say, oh by the way we hit 1080p. It might deliver a cool talking point, but all they have done to defend the resolution, they would basically be telling the consumer, oh 1080p does matter. Could you imagine if they did this and then the game struggled in the fps department? It would be suicidal. This ranks as one of the dumbest rumors I have heard yet. The game will run at a resolution below 1080p and it will upscale to 1080p.

Angainor71275d ago

@ Hatsune Go back to your cave and play Knack troll..

Elit3Nick1275d ago

So people shouldn't trust EA's word about their own game, but it's ok to trust people like CBOAT who got/is getting banned for false information that the fanboys here desperately wanted to believe.

dantesparda1274d ago

Umm, its not EA saying this, its just another person claiming to have inside info just like CBOAT. So by your own figuring, we shouldnt believe this guy either otherwise you are just being a hypocrit and fanboyish

"A Titanfall community member going by the name “DucatiRossi46″ who works “closely with Respawn and EA” has allegedly been told by the studio that “they are aiming for 1080p at launch following the Xbox One patches“.

According to him, “there will be 2 patches pre-release, which should get it to 1080p following the Xbox One patches.”

Nothing more than a rumor, the beta was already dipping into the 30's, so i doubt it

alejandroelputo1275d ago

Its hard to hear xbone and 1080p together when the ps4 is not on the same sentence

Bigpappy1275d ago (Edited 1275d ago )

If they were to do that and make people expect 1080p then not deliver, that will hurt way more than help. That makes no marketing sense what so ever. May increase day one a tad for those who see this as important for what ever reason.

For the record I hope they don't try for 1080p, as I believe that would end up hurting the gameplay. That is a stupid move for this type of game. If they can get the res up and maintain the frame rate, great. Else leave it to heck alone.

Respawn said they were going to up the res, but I agree with them not announcing a res until they have one that does not hurt the game. You should never promise until you are sure that is the best you could deliver without hurting the overall game.

StrangerX1274d ago

Huh? Why not? I mean, Assassin's creed wasn't 1080p when it came out on PS4 and was updated to that resolution so in regards to Titanfall's resolution, its very much possible since Xbox one was able to handle Forza5 which it has way more quality textures and achieved 1080p/60fps.,so even thou I don't really care if the resolution is bumped or not to 1080p, I rather them take their time in adding and perfecting the server and do all those 1080p higher textures and so on in their sequel with obviously a new graphic engine. But the 1080p bump is very possible even more with the updated SDK tools.

bornsinner1274d ago (Edited 1274d ago )

so you wouldn't buy a highly rated game if it wasn't 1080p?... wow what an idiot. i believe it will probably be 900p but even if it remains 792p as long as it's hd or sub hd we cant really tell the difference. anyone who says different are just kidding themselves. and i play on a 42 inch sony bravia 653 tv, sure side by side it looks a lil smoother but the difference is tiny.

cozomel1274d ago

Yeah, you just keep telling yourself that. Maybe if you believe it hard enough, it'll become true.
