Ubisoft to cap The Crew at 30FPS

Next generation open world racer, The Crew will be capped at 30 frames per second as a target of 60 frames per second is ‘unrealistic given the size of the world’.1

“60 frames per second is, of course, what we would all like to obtain,” The Crew, creative director Julian Gerighty remarked, “but it’s such a big world, and with all the online features running, it’s just not realistic to obtain that. 30 [frames] locked is really, really good and exactly what we’ve been focussed on.”

While being a large map, Gerighty reminds us not to expect a 1:1 scale map of the USA: “It’s obviously not 1:1. If you’ve ever had a road trip even from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, it’s four or five hours away. We’re still in the business of entertainment, so what we’ve done is we’ve done a condensed version of everything. Running from San Francisco to New York will last about an hour.”

PS4 racer DriveClub, meanwhile, still runs at 30FPS despite development team Evolution targeting a 60FPS frame rate in time for launch.

The Crew launches on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC early next year.
