Naughty Dog is aiming for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End to run at 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second, a shared goal across all current and future PS4 projects.
The studio's PS3 projects all targeted 720p resolution and 60 FPS, Naughty Dog community strategist Arne Meyer told Eurogamer. Meyer said it would not have been able to maintain the same quality of visual effects with a higher resolution and frame rate on the previous generation.
But building The Last of Us Remastered let Naughty Dog get comfortable working with PS4, Meyer said, so it already had a head start when it began work on Uncharted 4.
"I think that's what we want to push for with anything we're doing on this generation," Meyer said "That's sort of the mandate from when we were building the PS4 engine. Let's see if we can do this and hit it. We hit it with The Last of Us Remastered, so why not stick with this?"
Meyer noted that The Last of Us Remastered does dip below 60 frames per second in some circumstances, but it's "not going to be something massive where you're going to tell the difference".
The title stars an older Nathan Drake who has been out of the game for several years. Forced back into the world of thieves, he sets out on a globetrotting adventure in pursuit of a historical conspiracy behind a fabled pirate treasure.
