EA Announces Frostbite Go For Mobile Devices

Given that around 15 upcoming titles from EA will utilise the Frostbite 3 engine, it was something of a blow for Nintendo to learn that the Wii U won't run  those games.

But your mobile phone might!

Yep, it's official: that brick in your pocket will soon be able to run an engine that your Wii U can't. <insert facepalm here>

EA have described the mobile initiative as one of their "most exciting projects," and Frostbite Go will form a "mobile division empowering EA game developers with Frostbite’s proven excellent workflows and features to bring true Frostbite experiences to all major mobile platforms."

EA discussed bringing DICE's impressive game engine to mobile devices in their investor call last week, and now a website has been constructed, dedicated to all things Frostbite, and complete with a resounding note of confirmation.

"Runtime in Frostbite supports a highly scalable model in order to appeal to the diverse array of platforms available on today’s market. Efficiency in both our runtime memory and runtime performance are both key factors to enabling code and data systems to deploy content to diverse targets from XBOX360 and PlayStation 4 to iOS and Android."

Still no mention of the Wii U. Sad times for Nintendo.

You wont be able to suc-cessfully play it though due to crappy touch controls. You wont found this out till after you bought the app of course, you will lie to yourself that it will be different this time... ;)

No-one believes EA anymore. Everyone knows about the Origin shutdown debacle from Nintendo by now. It just makes this news even more pathetic on EA's part.
