Ubisoft's upcoming stealth-action game Assassin's Creed Unity is targeting 1080p/60fps for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, level designer Bruno St-André revealed in an interview with GamingBolt conducted at E3 but published today. According to the report, St-André initially said he was unsure about the game's resolution and frame rate, before eventually confirming the details.

Last year's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag ran in native 1080p (after a day-one patch) on PS4, while the Xbox One version outputted in something below that level. A notable difference between Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin's Creed Unity, however, is that this year's game is not in development for last-generation consoles like the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.

Assassin's Creed Unity launches October 28 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Ubisoft has strongly suggested that a new Assassin's Creed game is coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 this year, but Ubisoft has yet to formally announce a 2014 title for those platforms.

Currently, many multiplatform games--including heavy-hitters like Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty: Ghosts--run in a higher resolution on the PS4 than the Xbox One. But, thanks to an Xbox One developer update released this month, it now appears that Sony may not hold a resolution advantage forever.
