No Frostbite 3 On The Wii U.


In what seems like a weekly TV soap opera the conflict between EA and Nintendo has taken yet another twist. This time with DICE technical director Johan Andersson announcing over Twitter that the Frostbite 3 engine wouldn’t run on the Wii U.
“FB3 has never been running on WiiU. We did some tests with not too promising results with FB2 & chose not to go down that path.”
The announcement means that the Wii U will now miss out on 14 pending EA titles including Mass Effect 4, Dragon Age, Battlefield 4 and whatever Star Wars games that are currently in development. The announcement also begs the questions though, how can the PS3 and 360 run Battlefield 4 and not the Wii U? And if Frostbite 2 also had trouble running on the Wii U why on earth was Battlefield 3 being ported to the Wii U before Nintendo and EA’s falling out but not afterwards?  I’ll let you come to your own decisions on both questions and Mr. Andersson’s comments yourself.

  1. Worst company in America may be selling them a little short to be honest. Worst company in the developed world though, now that has a pleasing ring to it.

  2. In the end where EA publish their games is their business,, what I don’t get is why they can’t just be straight about it. Do they really think we gamers are this naive? Perhaps when the new CEO comes in he’ll bring some sense with him.
