Firewatch PS4 Confirmed To Run At 1080p Resolution, Currently No Plans For An Xbox One Version

Campo Santo’s Sean Vanaman does want as many people to play it as possible however.

Firewatch

Of the many high profile games releasing in 2016, especially in February, it’s interesting to note of Firewatch from Campo Santo. Housing developers experienced in titles like Tales of Monkey Island and The Walking Dead like writer/designer Sean Vanaman, Campo Santo will be launching a mysterious adventure in Wyoming wilderness with Firewatch.

GamingBolt spoke to Vanaman about Firewatch and he confirmed that with the PS4 version will be rendered at 1080p resolution, however the frame rate seems like it’s going to be locked at 30. “The game is definitely in 1080p – last I played it was at 30fps. It’s not a high-action shooter so 60fps, etc, is not as important. There aren’t any rad explosions you can bask in.”

Why isn’t it coming to Xbox One? Well, there isn’t a specific reason. Vanaman said, “Not really – we’re just a small studio and can only do so much.”

As for any plans to bring Firewatch to Microsoft’s console at some point, “There are no plans right now but we, obviously, want as many folks to play the game over the long term as possible!” So there is a possibility that an Xbox One version may release in the future but the developer is not making any promises.

Firewatch is out on February 9th for PS4, PC, Mac OS X and Linux.

    I fear everytime I see a game is being made using Unity.

    Every console game I played that had this engine was a mess

    • XanderZane41

      Unity doesn’t even run well on IOS. Many games that got switched to Unity now run like crap on IPads and IPhones.

      Not everyone likes to play games on a PC. I’ll be getting all those games on XB1. Many Win10 PC games will easily be ported to XB1 as well in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, etc…

    • legacy

      Nobody’s porting anything to the lunchbox1

    • Truth™

      Neither is the PS4 getting any games

      Almost 20 million and counting buying XB1. That’s a lot of “nobodies”. lol!!

    • A verdade ofende

      Im one of those nobodies.

    • legacy

      Yep almost 20 million playing 360 games

    • xfatalxzero

      And 36 million on PS4 only playing less than 5 games on average for the past two years. And 36million consoles have the opportunity to rebut 10-15 year old games and even 20 year old games for $10-$15 per game.

    • legacy

      5 games on average? You keep believing that i can name over 30 exclusives right now but im gonna let you keep making an as out of yourself

    • Truth™

      You can’t because PS4 has no games 🙂

    • Truth™

      And now since the superior version is being converted, Everyone’s Gone To PC 🙂

    • Truth™

      No it cannot

    • legacy

      Why xcrap wait to the holidays to release games, why can they barely reach 1080p,why xcrap got no games, why you play with yourself instead of finding a woman. These are answers everybody wants to know

    • xfatalxzero

      They never said it can’t reach it but not every game needs to hit 60fps. With consoles specs are locked more than a PC so you aren’t using up the system to have something you don’t need. In this instance. You don’t need 60fps.

      Quantum Break which is a new ip comes out Spring this year. I don’t know exact date. I don’t follow Sony/PS4 catalog because I don’t have one. But I doubt bash the brand or blindly follow one while trolling either. Enough with the crap. You like your system that’s good, enjoy. You don’t get paid by Sony. Did you get raped by a Microsoft employee or something?

    • Kris Crawford

      Why does it bother you? Liar the try hard troll

    • Kris Crawford

      Yep and thats with them unlocking their special sauce

  • omarcominyo

    So if it’s not high action then make it 60fps! Or just be honest and say you CAN’T!!

  • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

    We have not asked for or even want this game anyway.
    Show us a link we have asked for this game, we haven’t and wont.

  • Psionicinversion

    quite funny how they say they havnt got the man power to put it on xbox yet find the resources to put it on 2 irrelevant platforms like the mac and linux

    • Urthman

      I think they developed it in Unity, which makes it fairly trivial to release Mac and Linux ports. Xbox is a different beast.

  • HisDivineOrder

    This looks (to me) like another casualty of Microsoft’s tone-deaf approach to indies with regard to making console games. I was listening to a stream by LoboJr (Twitch) talking to one of the two-person team making Salt & Sanctuary. In that stream, you could hear the reluctance of the guy to really go into detail the full measure of all the ways Microsoft doesn’t help the chosen few developers they deem worthy of their attention (ie., Cuphead, Ori). Sony is bending over backwards.

    Microsoft is not. That’s why there are so many indie games coming to PS4 and not to Xbox One. And when that happens, Microsoft refuses to let them be published on Xbox after PS4 because of a clause where they want “parity releases” (simultaneous) or none.

    So… why is this game not coming to Xbox One?

    Because Microsoft’s not fostering relationships to make it and many more show up.

    • Truth™

      Why would you buy indies on PS4 when they are superior on PC anyway?

      Firewatch on PC – 60FPS
      Firewatch on PS4 – sub-30FPS

      Doesn’t take a genius.

    • 113mac113

      Wow love how i’d have to pay 2x the price to get it to run at 1080p 60fps on the same settings

    • Knowles2

      because most people won’t even notice the difference. An I doubt it will be sub 30FPS are any point.

  • Rubix99

    PC afterthought race.
