The resolution at which Assassin’s Creed: Unity will run on PS4 and Xbox One has in fact not yet been decided, Ubisoft has claimed.
"Final specs for Assassin’s Creed Unity aren’t cemented yet but we can say we showed Assassin’s Creed Unity at 900p during our hands-on preview event last week,” the company told Eurogamer.
"The development team has been hard at work delivering the best Assassin’s Creed possible on next generation consoles. Regardless of which platform you’re playing on, Assassin’s Creed Unity will answer what an Assassin’s Creed game built from the ground up for the next generation of gaming looks like and will be the best looking Assassin’s Creed game ever developed."
The statement represents a second change of mind for Ubisoft.
Senior producer Vincent Pontbriand told Videogamer earlier this week that both the PS4 and Xbox One versions would run at 900p, adding that: "We decided to lock them at the same specs to avoid all the debates and stuff."
This was then quickly rubbished by Ubisoft itself, with the company telling Polygon that the quotes were misinterpreted”, adding: To set the record straight, we did not lower the specs for Assassin’s Creed Unity to account for any one system over the other.”
Assassin’s Creed: Unity will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 13th.
