Frostbite 3 Engine Will Not Be Supported on Wii U
For those of you who were looking forward to playing Battlefield 4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, or the new Mass Effect on your Wii U, it’ll be no DICE for you.
In a recent interview with Eurogamer, Executive Producer of Battlefield 4 Patrick Bach, said that their Frostbite 3 engine would not be supported on the WiI U. DICE considers their lower end platforms for Battlefield 4 to be the PS3 and Xbox 360. Their main development focus for Battlefield 4 is PC, but it will also be supporting the PlayStation 4 as well.
Bach said, “It’s about, where do you put your focus? And the Wii U is not a part of our focus right now.” He talked about how if they were to put it on the Wi iU, then they’d have to figure out the GamePad situation as well as graphical limitations, and it is something that they don’t want to think about at the moment.
So, for now, there will be no games running on the Frostbite 3 engine on the Wii U any time soon.
