Earlier this week, Microsoft confirmed that its backwards compatible games - including Xbox One games - would "play better" on Xbox Series X due to a variety of potential enhancements.
Following this, Sea of Thieves executive producer Joe Neate confirmed on Twitter that the game "is going to be benefitting," but revealed that specific details will be coming later:
"The [Xbox] team across in Redmond are doing an incredible job, as they always do. And no, we’re not telling you how Sea of Thieves is going to be benefitting yet, but this article gives some clues..."
The Xbox Wire article noted that backwards compatible games on Xbox Series X can take advantage of automatic HDR, Quick Resume and much more, and there's also the potential for resolution and frame rate boosts for certain titles.
Sea of Thieves already boasts 4K HDR support via Xbox One X enhancements, but it currently only runs at 30 frames per-second on the system. Will it be boosted to 60fps on Xbox Series X? Hopefully we'll find out soon.
