Developer Evolution Studios has revealed that it hasn’t yet got its PlayStation 4 racer DriveClub running at 60fps, but hopes this will change in time for launch.
Speaking with VideoGamer.com, Col Rodgers, DriveClub’s game director, said the PS4 launch title is still “targeted 60 frames.”
“So the build that you’ll be seeing on the show floor at Gamescom is locked at 30 [FPS],” explained Evolution’s Paul Rustchynsky. “We’re still aiming towards 60 [FPS]. We’re still in development. We’ve still got a few months togo.”
“We’ve built the physics systems and all the light systems so that they can cope with potentially any frame rate. We didn’t want to lock ourselves down early on. We wanted to give ourselves some flexibility with that in mind, so we’ve got the option potentially.”
DriveClub will be released alongside Sony’s new home console this November, and will also be made available for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers, albeit featuring fewer cars and tracks.
