With the arrival of new generation consoles, Microsoft decided to invest in a new strategy, making available to users a digital version of its new console, but with also more modest specifications. In this way, they managed to find the perfect balance between price and quality, for fans who are unable to invest in the Xbox Series X.
However, new information leaves us in doubt about the real capabilities of the Xbox Series S. According to Microsoft’s promises, the console will be able to run games with a maximum resolution of 1440p at 120fps, with active Ray Tracing technology. But, it seems that this may not be entirely true.
Epic games has already confirmed that Fornite will be available for new consoles from its launch day, but will arrive on the Series S at “half gas”. If on the one hand it will arrive at the Series X with support for 4K at 60fps, on the Xbox Series S it will be limited to only 1080p at 60fps.
Microsoft may disappoint fans and launch Xbox Series S limited to 1080p
Fortnite is one of the games that received the best optimization in this transition to the next generation consoles, and is also one that offers less complex graphics. So limited support for a 1080p resolution at 60fps leaves a lot of doubts in the air and could end up sentencing the Xbox Series S to an unexpected failure.
While it may have been Epic Games’ decision, not to launch the game right away with support for the console’s maximum capabilities, seems an unlikely decision.
If this decision was not an Epic Games strategy (planning a future update with support for 1440p and 120fps), it is very likely that all other heavier AAA games will also be limited to 1080p resolution at 60fps. While it continues to feature support for Ray Tracing, these limitations would be a disappointment for Xbox fans.
