Naughty Dog makes the call.
Uncharted 4's game director Bruce Straley says the game won't run at 60 FPS if it harms the player's experience.
In the latest issue of Edge, Straley said the Uncharted 4 demo we saw last year was running at 30 FPS, though the game is achieving a higher number overall.
"We're actually above 30, but we locked it [for the demo], Straley said. "We're going to do whatever it takes to make the game we want to make. If it means we could go for 60 but lose something that would really impact the player's experience, then it's our choice as developers to say, 'Well, we're going to go for the experience over the 60 frames.'"
For context, every PS3 Uncharted game ran at 30 FPS. The re-release of The Last of Us on PS4 ran at 60 FPS.
Naughty Dog recently shared some details about Uncharted 4's story. It will take place three years after the events of Uncharted 3, and will take Drake to a mythical pirate colony in Madagascar. The game will also include multiplayer.
