During the initial release of the Xbox Series X|S & PlayStation 5, it was strange to discover that the Microsoft console was the only system to support 120hz mode for Call of Duty: Warzone.

However, it is undetermined when that will arrive. Nonetheless, it is a positive sign for the free-to-play experience noted that the release welcomed more than 100 million players since launching.
In the new patchwork laid out in anticipation for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s Season 4, Raven Software reveals that the feature is told to hit PlayStation 5 when the client goes live. “Added 120hz support for PS5,” the patch notes shares. The team also indicates that the feature will require a HDMI 2.1 cord and is likely to also be in possession of a display that support the newly targeted refresh rate.
Regarding the PlayStation 5 aiming to meet the same 120 frames per second support on Xbox Series X|S, developers shared that it asks for more resources to be applied to make a reality. Rocket League’s Psyonix told a full-on port is required to feature 120 fps to its game. Similarly, PUBG Corp also explained similar distress in the extra steps to achieve the doubled framerate on the platform as well.
