Battlefield 4: DICE still mum on next-gen resolution, says they “evaluate the best quality & performance tradeoff”

Curious to know what resolution Battlefield 4 will be on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One? You’re not the only one.

Unfortunately, DICE still isn’t ready to spill what resolution BF4 will be once the game ships. In a short interview with DICE GM Karl Magnus Troedsson, we asked him whether BF4 on next-gen will be at 1080p or what resolution they’re aiming for.

Pixel Enemy: There’s recently been a furor over what resolution BF4 will be on next-gen platforms. Can you state once and for all, if BF4 for PS4/Xbox One will run at 1080p? If not, what resolution are you guys shooting for since we’re about a month from release?

KM Troedsson: We always evaluate what is the best quality & performance tradeoff for each platform and make decisions for graphical quality and resolution accordingly. With the power of Frostbite 3, not only will Battlefield 4 looks fantastic on Xbox One and PS4, but it will also deliver the all-out-warfare experience our fans have come to expect from DICE. And don’t forget, for the first time ever on next-gen consoles Battlefield 4 will support 64 player matches all running at 60fps. Combine that with intense Levolution moments both big and small and the return of Commander Mode and you have the best looking, deepest, and most fun Battlefield experience ever on console.

That’s a rather fancy way of dodging the question, but it is a runabout nonetheless. Will BF4 run at 720p, 1080p or somewhere in between on next-gen consoles? Only DICE knows the exact answer to that question at this time.
