Microsoft Influenced Diablo III’s 1080p Resolution On Xbox One

Blizzard was initially going to release Diablo III on Xbox One with a 900p resolution, but was told this was ‘unacceptable’ by Microsoft. Blizzard’s John Hight revealed the news, telling Eurogamer that Microsoft was adamant about the game matching the PS4’s 1080p resolution.

“We did find it challenging early on to get it to 1080p,” he said. “That’s why we made the decision to drop to 900. That’s what we demoed and were showing around E3 time. And Microsoft was just like, ‘This is unacceptable. You need to figure out a way to get a better resolution.’ So we worked with them directly, they gave us a code update to let us get to full 1080p.”

There has been controversy surrounding the lack of 1080p titles on Xbox One, but Microsoft has since promised that it is looking change that, with more 1080p Xbox One titles on the horizon.
