Destiny 2 Is 30fps On Consoles; Not Even PS4 Pro…

Destiny 2 is shaping up to exceed its predecessor in many aspects, but one area won't be getting much of an upgrade: the frame rate.

The sequel to the online multiplayer first-person shooter Destiny will be locked at a lackluster 30fps on consoles. It seems likely that Bungie doesn't want the game to run beyond 30 FPS on the PS4 Pro simply because the original unit (and Xbox One) wouldn't be able to exceed 30 FPS.

As we already know, Microsoft's new Xbox flagship codenamed Project Scorpio will be equipped with the internal with quite a lot of power under the hood so you can enjoy future games in native 4K at 60 frames per second.

According to Bungie's Luke Smith, the development team chose to locked Destiny 2 at 30FPS on PlayStation 4 Pro because the console does not have enough horsepower to run the game and 60FPS, CPU constraints are one of the prime reason. "It wouldn't run - not enough horsepower there yet".

1 shot and killed in domestic incident involving off-duty DE trooper
Neighbors said the trooper is a great person, in her 40s, with two high school-age kids who were not believed to be home. A domestic shooting involving an off-duty state trooper in DE has left one man shot and the trooper "severely battered".

Destiny 2 leads Luke Smith and Mark Noseworthy spoke to IGN after last week's big unveiling to answer all sorts of questions, and one of which was about Bungie's decision to once again lock the frame-rate to 30fps. Our game's this rich physics simulation, with collision and players, networking etc.

Some of our skepticism would melt away if Bungie chose to release a 60 FPS version on Project Scorpio, which is roughly 50% more powerful (graphics-wise) than the PS4 Pro.

Stay tuned to A9K for the latest Destiny 2 news. In the same interview, Shaw also revealed that console versions of the game will not be able to play it at 60FPS or beyond while PC players can enjoy even more than that.

It's hard to tell why Bungie is only limiting 30fps on Destiny 2 for consoles.
