Infinity Ward Adds 120 FPS Support to Call of Duty: Warzone for Xbox Series X, but Not PlayStation 5

It appears that the definitive console version of Call of Duty: Warzone has been awarded to Microsoft. Users on r/XboxSeriesX have discovered that the Xbox Series X version of the battle royale hit has been updated with 120 FPS support, which is interesting for two reasons: 1) Infinity Ward never mentioned it in its patch notes, and 2) the PlayStation 5 version is still locked at 60 FPS.

Eurogamer has confirmed that the PS5 version of Call of Duty: Warzone is limited to lower frame rates regardless of whether the “quality” or “performance” mode is chosen.

“Digital Foundry has tried a variety of methods to triple-check Warzone’s fps on PS5, and all see the game running at 60fps,” the publication noted. “The PS5 has quality and performance mode available to choose from on the user interface, but even in performance mode Warzone runs at 60fps.”

It isn’t clear why Infinity Ward only added 120 FPS support to the Xbox Series X version of Call of Duty: Warzone. The most sensible reason would be that the PS5 isn’t powerful enough to handle it, but that shouldn’t be the case based on Sony’s hardware.
