Frostbite Go for mobile devices
Have you seen the latest update of the official website of EA lately? You will find there the much anticipated announcement for the launching of a new version of the Frostbite engine for mobile devices. It will be called the “Frostbite Go.” Although, the information about this platform is not much, it is clear that the company aims to develop versions for both OS – Android and iOS. We had an idea that the company is taking this direction awhile ago, because of the job listings for positions on the website posted earlier in the year.
The message posted on the website reveals that this project for developing of an engine for mobile devices is among the most exciting for the company. The main goals of the developers are to assure the excellent features and flawless work of the new version of Frostbite in tune with the company’s tradition to give a fulfilling experience to its customers.
The runtime in Frostbite will support the diversity of models available on the market today. The company focuses on efficiency on the runtime memory and on the performance to assure that the code and the data systems are enable to deploy the content to many different devices, from PlayStation to Android and iOS.
We first fell in love with the Frostbite engine in some of the most famous fames of EA – Need for Speed and Battlefield. Early this year, it became clear that the company is planning to develop a Frostbite version for Mac OS X. The launching of the mobile version Frostbite Go seems as a natural step that the company will take.
Meantime, EA will delight its fans with the developing of the latest version – Frostbite 3 that will be launched in the next months. It is expected to ship with the so eagerly waited Battlefield 4. Gamers have another reason to be happy this year.
