Destiny 2: PS4 Pro "Couldn't Run" Game at 60fps

Is this a hint the game will run 60fps on Xbox Scorpio?

"It wouldn't run - not enough horsepower there yet."

Destiny 2 will run at a 4K resolution on PS4 Pro, but will be locked to 30 frames per second because of CPU constraints.

Speaking to IGN, game director Luke Smith confirmed that, "it will not run at 60 on the Pro. I don't want people to continue to hope, we're going to be matter-of-fact about that stuff."

"The PS4 Pro is super-powerful, but it couldn't run our game at 60", he added. "Our game's this rich physics simulation, with collision and players, networking etc. It wouldn't run - not enough horsepower there yet."

Project lead Mark Noseworthy explained that while the GPU was powerful enough to render at 4K, it was the CPU that was to blame for the lower frame rate.

It remains to be seen if the comparatively more powerful Xbox Scorpio will manage a 4K/60fps output - Noseworthy confirmed that Bungie wouldn't be speaking about a Scorpio version at this time.

The PC version of the game will support 4K and feature an uncapped frame rate, but it may well be released later than console versions.

There's been a lot of Destiny 2 over the last day - here's everything we've learned so far in one place, including news, gameplay footage and hands-on impressions.
