[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, a Techland representative provided a statement to GameSpot on Dying Light's resolution and frame rate for PS4.

"1080p/30 fps is what we have right now, it is what is constant, and what we're sure we can deliver in the final product," the representative said. "But the work is still ongoing, and even though we have no more than two weeks left, things can still change.":

"So even though the answer is accurate I would change the question--it's not what we target, it is what we will deliver 100 percent."

As for whether or not 1080p/30fps can be achieved across both PS4 and Xbox One, the Techland representative added: "It's too early to tell, but we're trying to squeeze as much as we can from both consoles. Please stay tuned."

The original story is below.

Back in 2013, Techland said it was hoping Dying Light would run in 1080p/60fps across PS4 and Xbox One. Game development is a fluid, ongoing process, so it's not entirely surprising to see the frame rate drop, at least on PS4, to 30fps for the final version of the game.

That said, Techland has not yet explained why it wasn't able to reach its original frame rate target for the open-world zombie game. We'll update this post with anything we hear back from Techland.

Dying Light's release date is January 27, 2015 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game was originally expected to also come to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but those versions were recently canceled.
