It has come to our attention that Infinity Ward have added support for 120 FPS in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for Xbox Series X, but not Sony's next-gen console, PlayStation 5.

Strangely enough, Infinity Ward's latest Call of Duty: Modern Warfare / Warzone patch notes say nothing about this, but players quickly caught on and posted their findings on Reddit . Which are, as we already said, that Xbox Series X runs Call of Duty: Warzone at 120 FPS. 

Players are loving it or as one commenter put it, "I couldn't stop telling my friend how much different it felt. You know when you die and instantly say to yourself that guy's on pc...well that's how I felt. Everything was crazy smooth...the new texture pack makes it look even better and I have no clue what the fps was but it definitely was consistent."

As reported by Eurogamer , Digital Foundry's initial testing showed that Call of Duty: Warzone indeed runs at 120 FPS, or to be more precise, it bounced between 100 and 120 FPS. 

Their testing on PlayStation 5 revealed that Call of Duty: Warzone is locked at 60 FPS. Digital Foundry apparently tried all the tricks in the book to ascertain this, and the result is the same - 60 FPS is the ceiling. 

While it may be too early to cry foul, as PlayStation 5 has only been on the market for a few days, it certainly is likely to be a talking point in the upcoming period.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and its free-to-play sibling Call of Duty: Warzone, remain among the most popular games around, so we guess it's Activision's and Infinity Ward's turn.
