Naughty Dog has been teasing us with talk of 60 FPS for The Last of Us Remastered for a while, but considering the habit of many developers and publishers to call “60 FPS” a frame rate that touches that goal but dips under it when things get chaotic, having doubts is legitimate.
Luckily Lead Programmer Christian Gyrling did his part today to dispel said doubts, clarifying that the team did its best to avoid any drops under the 60 magical number.
We have worked hard to remove drops so that the experience should be at a constant 60 fps.
Gyrling also confirmed that the game will hold 60 FPS for both single player and multiplayer:
Yes, 60 fps in both single and multiplayer.

You can check them out just below. It’s definitely not hard to see how the game was inspired by real life, and they give some interesting insight on the creative process behind environmental design in games.
