Actually up to 4K. Not sure if that is embarrassing or not for such an ancient game.

You're misinterpreting what that means. They say up to 4K because a lot of people have different resolution TVs and monitors, so the resolution can vary all the way up to 4K, and not to say 8K. If you have a 4K TV, it's gonna run at a locked 4K. 120fps if you have a compatible TV/monitor too.

It doesn't mean the resolution of the game on next-gen consoles is constantly changing from 1800p all the way up to 4K.
