According to a comment obtained by ICXM, Square Enix acknowledged Final Fantasy XV's issues with texture compression and resolution scaling, both of which seem to contribute to the game's blurry appearance on Xbox One.
When asked about FFXV's graphical problems, Square Enix offered the following statement:
For a basic example of some of the issues impacting FFXV's visuals, you can see in the images below how textures become aggressively compressed when the camera moves even slightly away. Stepping backward and forwards one step towards this sign causes the text to get progressively worse until it's illegible.
I wrote in my early impressions that the game is horribly blurry on Xbox One, so it's good to know that it's not the fault of my glasses. While Final Fantasy XV's art direction is gorgeous, wholly triumphant even, the technical issues plaguing the engine are holding the game back. FFXV is resoundingly fun, so hopefully, it'll soon get the visuals to match.
