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.
