Red Dead Redemption 2 is going to look mighty impressive on the Xbox One X since it has been confirmed to run at native 4K resolution.
This news was revealed by the Xbox France Twitter account who shared this information in a blurb about the game. Earlier this year, Digital Foundry had taken a look at the PS4 Pro version and speculated that it will run at 1920*2160 resolution, which is just half of the 4K resolution on one axis.

The other recent release that runs at native 4K on the Xbox One X is Far Cry 5, which was another open-world game from Ubisoft. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey runs on a dynamic 4K resolution set up on both the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X while it can also hit native 4K but albeit rarely due to the heavy rendering load.
It is still possible that this might be a mistake from the Xbox France Twitter account since it lists the game as Native 4K along with HDR support. It is hard to get an early resolution estimate from promotional materials or through developers, as they usually just say a 4K resolution is supported.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will launch for the PS4 and Xbox One on October 26th. It recently received a gameplay trailer and was confirmed to have the full map from Red Dead Redemption 1 in the sequel.
