“We aim to re-enable this as quickly as possible.”
F1 2021 has temporarily removed its ray-tracing capabilities on PlayStation 5 to improve the game’s stability.
Codemasters said the measure was a “difficult decision” but that it would re-enable ray-tracing as soon as it could.
F1 2021 launched for PC, PlayStation and Xbox last month. Ray-tracing in the game’s PC and Xbox Series X versions remains unaffected.
“As such, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily disable it to aid stability. We aim to re-enable this as quickly as possible, and we will provide an update in due course.”
There’s no word yet on when ray-tracing for PS5 will be re-enabled.
“An entertaining and surprisingly effective new story mode heads up an otherwise modest refresh for Codemasters’ official series,” Martin wrote in Eurogamer’s F1 2021 review, nevertheless recommending the game.
