When Assassin’s Creed Unity was made available for pre-order on the PSN, the listing included (and still includes) a “720p HD Video Output” mention that sparked rumors that the game could be launched with that resolution on Sony’s console.
Since what we saw at various trade show definitely did not look like 720p (even if it’s hard to be sure since monitors on the show floor tend to be on the smaller side), we reached out to Ubisoft for a clarification, and luckily we a representative of the publishers clarified that the listing is indeed a mistake, and as a matter of fact isn’t even talking about the game itself:
That particular description isn’t talking about the game resolution – it references the capacity of the hardware output. As such, it was listed incorrectly and is currently being updated. The update should be made in the next few days but again, that listing is referencing the capacity output of the hardware and not the game.
If the listing had you worried about the pixel count of the first new generation chapter of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, worry no more. It’s not going to be 720p and the listing will soon be corrected.
