Slightly Mad Studios have told GamingBolt that they have no intention of holding back the Project Scorpio version of Project CARS 2 to keep parity with the PlayStation 4 Pro version.
In the interview with Creative Director Andy Tudor it was explained
We may go higher resolution on Scorpio compared to Pro, or we may keep lower res but increase detail. Again, too early to say, and if we can do something extra on Scorpio easily we will do, we won’t hold it back due to Pro.
This is great news for potential Project Scorpio owners as it is a sign that there are developers out there who will look to get the best out of the hardware they have access to. So whether Project CARS 2 comes with higher resolution or increased levels of detail, it will be interesting to see what Slightly Mad Studios can deliver and how much they’ll give Forza a run for its money.
This thinking by Slightly Mad Studios is in stark contract to Bungie who announced that Destiny 2 would run at 30fps on consoles referring to the PlayStation 4 Pro version. This is due to the CPU not being sufficient enough to run at a higher framerate and was explained by Game Director Luke Smith in an interview with IGN.
While some went on the believe that the Project Scorpio version might not fall under this same 30fps cap, it is likely the game will run at the same framerate on both the PlayStation 4 Pro and Project Scorpio. This theory is due to the fact Activision has a publishing agreement with PlayStation and they won’t want to make the Microsoft console look better even if it can outperform the Pro with its custom CPU.
Project CARS 2 launches for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One later this year.
