Xbox Series X “60FPS Is Not A Mandate”, Microsoft Confirms

Microsoft Xbox X Series

Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg, marketing director of the Xbox division, has recently pointed out that the Xbox Series X games should be played at 60FPS by default.

There was also talk of frame rates being supported with up to 120 frames per second. Ubisoft’s developers, who pointed out that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will support at least 30 frames per second on the next-gen Microsoft console, caused confusion yesterday. A statement that caused Greenberg to take his words back via Twitter.

As the marketing director of the Xbox division noted, Microsoft will not force its partners to optimize their games on the Xbox Series X to run at 60FPS. Instead, developers and publishers can decide which frame rates their titles support on the next-gen console of Microsoft. There can be no question of a final farewell to the 30FPS.

“Developers always have flexibility in how they use the power, so a standard or common 60fps is not a mandate,” Greenberg confirmed via his Twitter profile.

A few weeks ago, however, Phil Spencer, the head of Microsoft’s gaming division, pointed out that the various Xbox Game studios on Xbox Series X will focus on 4K and 60FPS display. Further details on the first-party productions for the upcoming console of Microsoft will follow in July.

Recall that Xbox Series X will release this Holiday 2020. According to a listing by a Finnish retailer, however, the next-gen console of Microsoft could release alongside Yakuza: Like a Dragon on October 23, 2020.
