What you need to know

  • Destiny 2 is a popular first-person shooter from Bungie.
  • The game was upgraded for PlayStation 5.
  • Destiny 2 is also being upgraded for Xbox Series X.
  • Both consoles support 4K resolution and 60 FPS.

Updated June 9, 2020: Bungie confirmed that Destiny 2 will run at 4K resolution and 60 FPS on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. The game will also get cross-play sometime in 2021.

Destiny 2 is an incredibly popular first-person shooter and it looks stunning on Xbox One X. However, despite the fact that it runs at native 4K resolution, it still renders at 30 frames per second (FPS). However, it seems like that's about to change when the next-generation machines roll out.

Today, Bungie confirmed that Destiny 2 would be upgraded for next-generation machines. Hopefully, this means that the title will render at 60 frames per second, or higher, on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. However, only time will tell. It's unclear how the power difference between the two platforms will affect final image quality at this time.
