Project Cars 2 will reportedly offer an entirely separate experience on the Xbox One X.
In a recent interview, chief operating officer Rod Chong stated that the development team is currently busy in performing benchmarks on the upcoming console. Slightly Mad Studios is not ready to give details on what kind of enhancements we can expect from the anticipated sequel. It, however, has confirmed that the Xbox One X version of the racing simulator has so far left the developer very “impressed.”
“Unfortunately, I can’t tell you that much right now because we are benchmarking as we speak,” he told GameSpot. “We are impressed with the hardware but right now we are benchmarking. There will obviously be enhancements, but we are not ready to showcase exactly what those are yet. Other than it must be 60 frames per second or death.”
The studio is still pursuing the goal of a stable frame-rate of 60. According to the developer, anything below will cause the experience to suffer. In that light, Project Cars 2 will either attain the threshold alongside pretty visuals or else dial back on features to maintain the high frame-rate.
Elsewhere, the PlayStation 4 Pro version of the game is also confirmed to see enhancements. Those too have been kept in the dark for the time being. In comparison, the Xbox One X boasts beefier specifications. It is unknown as to whether both versions will differ in features or be kept the same for console parity purposes.
Project Cars 2 is scheduled to launch on September 22 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
