Phil Spencer responds to rumors of forcing Blizzard to get Diablo 3 at 1080p on Xbox One


Microsoft did not "force" Blizzard to support 1080p for Diablo 3 on Xbox One, despite the rampant rumors running wild of late. Originally, the Xbox One version of Blizzard's hit PC action-RPG was supposed to run at a native resolution of 900p; however, Eurogamer this week reported that Blizzard's John Hight told them after an E3 demo in June that Microsoft called the resolution "unacceptable," telling them that they need to "figure out a way to get a better resolution."

According to Xbox head Phil Spencer, that's not exactly how it went down. Responding to fans on Twitter, Phil Spencer said Microsoft doesn't "force" any game to ship at 1080p. They merely work with the developers to help create the best game as possible. In the end, it's ultimately up to the developer how the game ships. 

Here's what he said on Twitter:

There you have it, straight from the Twitter of the head of Xbox.
