That seems lazy, the game looks like a ps3 game. But it is not surprising since the console port was horrible, they must have serious customization problems.

Since the Series S runs BC content as a Xbox One S, its capped at 30 fps. It doesen't sound like there is an actual patch yet.

This actually isn't news. Numerous titles will be 30 fps on Series S BC, while Series X will have access to more 60 fps options found on Xbox One X titles.

That's interesting. I had assumed that M$ was requiring studios meet the same frame rate across S and X, but this means in the future we may have some demanding games that choose to prioritise resolution while running at 1/2 frame rate on Series S compared to X.

The Series S and X are just running this game via BC it seems. Hence, that's why the Series S is 30 fps. Series S probably won't get 60 fps unless they add an unlock frame rate option or a next gen patch.
