UPDATE: Battlefield 4 on PS4 will not run at native 1080p res, will run at an upscaled 720p
Authored by Matt Hadden
UPDATE: Seems we all jumped the gun on the doom-and-gloom. DICE Technical Director on Frostbite Johan “Repi” Andersson has debunked this little nugget of info over on Twitter by saying it’s “false.”

Additionally, JackFrags has updated his own Twitter and added, “To clarify: BF4 running at a higher resolution than 720p in the PS4 dev environment. Final resolution when the game is optimised at launch!”
So, there you go, BF4 next-gen console fans. While we don’t know what the final game’s resolution will be, rest assured it won’t “just” be at 720p.
Just got confirmation from Lars in an interview… BF4 on PS4 runs at 720p upscaled to 1080p and solid 60 fps.

This seems to be a bit of a shame since you would think that the PS4 can easily handle 1080p without having to upscale. There are already a host of games coming out on PS4 that will run in native 1080p res such as Killzone.
Are you disappointed to read about this? I don’t think it was ever officially confirmed to run in native 1080p res though, I think that was just the target for DICE.
