The next installment in the long-running franchise Pro Evolution Soccer will run at 1080p on Xbox One, the developer confirmed today.

European Product Manager Adam Bhatti posted on Twitter that developer Konami managed to reach the resolution on Microsoft's console for Pro Evolution Soccer 2016. This marks a step up from last year's PES 2015, which was only able to run at 720p on Xbox even though the PlayStation 4 version ran at 1080p.

PES 2016 runs at 60 frames per second on the PS4, although the developer hasn't said yet if the Xbox One version will reach 60 as well. It's likely, however, considering that last year's game ran at 60 FPS on both consoles, in spite of the discrepancy in resolution.

The game uses Konami's Fox Engine, the same tech powering the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 launches on September 15 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. It will be released a week before its direct competitor, FIFA 16.
