The news is coming from Twitter, with Bethesda Softworks' Senior Producer, Jason Bergman, replying to a question on Twitter, which asked "is TEW targeting 30FPS or 60FPS?". Bergman replied with: "We're 30. Makes more sense for a survival horror game". Yes, you heard that right, because 30FPS is better for a "survival horror game".

This isn't the first cross platform game to have its framerate locked to 30FPS, with The Division locked at 30FPS on PC, as well as The Crew.
