Battlefield Hardline may not hit its 1080p target on PS4 and Xbox One, according to new comments reportedly made by EA.

In a statement provided to Australian site Games.on.net, EA states that Visceral is now aiming to get the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Hardline "playing at 60 FPS using the same resolution settings as [Battlefield 4]".

The news suggests that Hardline will run at 720p on Xbox One and 900p on PS4 - somewhat lower than the previously promised 1080p.

Back at E3, Sony's Adam Boyes said that the game would run at 1080p/60fps on PS4, despite the initial beta running at 900p. Visceral later suggested that the Xbox One version "should" also hit the 1080p target.

While VideoGamer.com had been unable to determine the resolution of today's beta at the time of writing, comments online point to worse-than-expected visuals, with Xbox One users complaining of a "sub 720p" resolution and "murky textures".

"Definitely a step down from BF4," said one Reddit user. "So far I haven't been very impressed with this game."

VideoGamer.com has contacted EA for further information.

UPDATE: In a statement provided to VideoGamer.com, an EA representative said: "This was said in an interview with Australian press, but we don't have any further comment on the subject."
