The lights are on
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.
One of our most exciting current projects is called Frostbite Go, 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.
The website also confirms that Battlefield 4 will be the first Frostbite 3 title at retail.

ouchhhhh, right in the WiiU
EA needs to make up with Nintendo now. There is money to be made here.
I still don't see this as anything that will change mobile gaming...
Battlefield. . . everywhere!
I imagine anything running on it will take up massive amounts of data and space though.
Just wanted to comment.
YAY, make pretty graphics for useless games... Makes sense... /facepalm
Haven't seen an IOS game yet that comes even remotely close to what I get with a console game! I've got a dozen or more that specifically claimed to be console quality but failed to even reach the half way mark of a console game. Some are definitely good, but I just don't see my IPhone or IPad every reaching the quality and immersion of my big screen TV and console. Maybe that's just me though.
Going to go out on a limb here, but if EA can get a version of Frostbite to run on mobile systems, a Wii U version shouldn't have been that far of a stretch...........
