Default EA Confirms Mobile Version Of Frostbite Engine

Quote:
Last week during its 2013 earnings call, EA indicated that all of its next generation console and PC titles would be running on either Frostbite 3 or a new sports engine. With the recent launch of its Frostbite website, another piece of the puzzle has emerged.

EA will be bringing a version of its next generation engine to mobile platforms. The website details the project.

Meh. They're probably never going to actually do anything with it, so why would I care?

You know what I want? I want Gameloft to port Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. It was a PS2 game so hardware isn't an issue, it's an Ubisoft game so there's the licensing taken care of, and the controls are pretty simple too.

There's nothing interesting here IMO. Pretty visuals? The visual standard on iOS is already good enough for me; Unity does a great job balancing stability and eye candy. There's also only so high mobile can go before heating and battery issues become serious concerns, regardless of the hypothetical models and benchmarks. Besides, something tells me that if EA releases a game made with this in a year or so, it'll be a bunch of F2P nonsense.

Interesting trivia fact, though.

So, Frostbite can work on iOS, but not on the far more powerful Wii U

It's the same. That means they took some time to develop a mobile version of Frostbite, but they didn't take some other time to downscale a bit Frostbite for Wii U. It's like no one likes Wii U, not even devs.

Really? I find that a little hard to swallow.

iOS isn't specifically mentioned, is it? Might just be for the Vita (though in terms of hardware iOS does surpass it).

I'm sure it will be available for iOS and Android too, otherwise saying mobile support just for Vita seems a bit stupid.
