Microsoft Pushed Blizzard to Hit 1080p With Diablo 3

 
Their wish is Blizzard's command.

Diablo III on Xbox One was originally set to launch with a resolution of 900p, but Blizzard was told this was "unacceptable" by Microsoft.

That's according to Blizzard’s John Hight who told Eurogamer that the company was adamant the resolution was upped to match what was on display on PS4.

"We did find it challenging early on to get it to 1080p," he said. "That's why we made the decision to drop to 900. That's what we demoed and were showing around E3 time. And Microsoft was just like, 'This is unacceptable. You need to figure out a way to get a better resolution.' So we worked with them directly, they gave us a code update to let us get to full 1080p."

Despite struggles close to release, Microsoft has promised more 1080p titles will be coming to Xbox One in the future and, if recent releases are anything to go by, it certainly isn't lying, with Diablo III leading the way.
