In the most recent Major Nelson podcast, Phil Spencer even mentioned that he has been visiting Bungie’s studio as of late. Stating that Bungie will receive the new June SDK soon to “up the resolution of Destiny” on Xbox One.

I’ve been spending a lot of time over there…they’re gonna pick up the June SDK update for Destiny and they are gonna up the resolution of Destiny based on this change. (The June SDK) will actually make a more vibrant and more alive gameplay space.

An exact resolution has not yet been announced, but our fingers are crossed for 1080p as long as the gameplay’s FPS doesn’t suffer.
