UPDATE: Madden 18 NOW to Support 4K Out of the Box for PS4 Pro

In a rather strange development, we have learned Madden 18 will not support 4K resolution and HDR on the Playstation 4 Pro out of the box.

At this point, it is not clear whether this is a design decision or a temporary technical hiccup. With Madden 18 featuring the new Frostbite Engine, which is touted for its amazing graphical capabilities, this is disappointing.

Madden 18 Creative Director, Rex Dickson told US Gamer that Pro support would be added in a future patch, but would not give a timetable. This could actually mean it may be available in the day-one patch since that’s not technically “Out of the box,” but that seems unlikely. A more likely scenario would be patch two or three. Let’s hope this isn’t something that takes half the season to get done.

With more and more gamers now playing on 4K TV’s with HDR support, this is something one would expect to be available at launch from major game publishers at this point.

There is no word on whether this will be the same on Xbox One S at this time.
