Most of you have heard of the famous Frostbite 2 engine. It's the engine the gorgeous Battlefield 3 runs on, and games such as Dragon Age Inquisition and Medal of Honor: Warfighter will run on in the near future.

Due to the success of the engine, Dice have decided to create a mobile version. It is not yet known which games will make use of this adjusted version of the engine...

From a vacancy ad on Dice's website, we can conclude that a Swedish developer is working on a mobile version of the Frostbite 2 engine. People who consider to sign up must have at least 1 year experience with mobile operating system's, such as iOS, Windows Phone or Android. Dice has not announced yet which games will be running on the Frostbite 2 engine for mobile phones, tablet's and other mobile devices.

Publisher of Dice, Electronic Arts, has already lent out the Frostbite 2 engine to multiple companies. Games such as Need for Speed: The Run, Medal of Honor: Warfigther, Command & Conquer and Dragon Age: Inquisition will all have the Frostbite 2 engine as their foundation. It's not new that publishers sell their engine license to other companies, so is the Unreal Engine used for over a hundred games. It is a new appereance however that a famous gaming engine is transferred to the mobile platform. How the games will look on there, is still to be seen.

 

What are your expectations?

Battlefield 3 (The MOBILE version) would run on Galaxy S3 but I'm more excited to get Dragon Age on my phone instead of Battlefield 3 but I'm okay with both :)

The Galaxy S3's GPU is actually incredibly overshadowed by ones like the Adreno 320 (upcoming LG Optimus G), and the PowerVR SGXMP3 in the Iphone 5

Actually, DICE launched Battlefield 3 mobile version for iOS named 'Battlefield 3: Aftershock' on the AppStore, time ago. I've tried it on my iPod, there were so many errors, bugs, and so many negative things, that it had been removed from the AppStore. I assume that DICE has received many negative feedback for the app too...

Warmice, the Title says "BATTLEFIELD 3 ON MOBILE DEVICES" but it seems like its more About Frostbite 2 on Mobiles. Battlefield 3 isn't ACTUALLY coming to Mobile, is it?

Its a smart title you know mate :P BF3 is quite popular, and very demanding game, which means that saying it will come to mobile devices immediately grabs your attention. The title isnt true, but it also isnt a lie :)

Indeed, more people know of BF 3 than the actual engine it runs on. If BF 3 is coming to your phone is to be seen.

I think the title needs a question mark, seems pretty misleading. I certainly wouldn't have expected a story like that attached to such a title, it seems like it has been confirmed, yet the article states DICE are working on the FB2 engine, not BF3. Nice article though (sorry to be the bad guy here)

Well, I had a different title at first, but Felix seemed this was more fitting, and I kind of agree, but also see your point. Either way, you didn't spent money on it so no worries ;)
