EA has announced that it’s setting up a new studio in Gothenburg to create new games for next generation consoles, which will use the fantastic Frostbite 2 engine. We had our first glimpse at the Frostbite 2 engine with Battlefield 3, which was released last year. Hopefully they’re preparing something as equally stunning for Wii U, which is due out later this year.
Im firts. Shit Im a part of capcom now i mispelled a word
I must admit; good one
im not going to attack u for saying “first” cos there is absolutely no reason to. why do people get frustrated when someone says “first” enjoy being first :)
saving this one for a while now but its only a one time use
Does anybody think the wiiu will even be able to run the frostbite 2 or any of the new engines? Because from what I understand you would need a hell of a console to run the new unreal engine….but I’m not hardware expert so who knows.
no next gen console will be able to run the samaritan demo made with the latest unreal engine, but down scaled a bit and wii u should be able to run it. frostbite 2 should easily run on wii u though
The requirements to run that demo aren’t unattainable based upon rumored wiiU specs(NeoGafs speculation). Of course it would run @ 720p/30fps, but I could accept that.
well the Wii U is coming out years after the PS3 & 360…if it isnt slightly better then either, I would be shocked…kind of..
To be precise, I believe the Wii U will be released this year (fourth quarter).
Yes it can run them. The engines are scalable. It just *most likely* will run at a lower setting. Its not going to be another wii situation.
Frostbite 2 actually runs better on the Wii U than on the PS3/360 http://game0n.net/2012/02/25/dead-space-overstrike-timesplitters-4/ it’s at the bottom.
Wii U runs Frostbite 2 smoother and at a higher frame rate than PS3/360
didn’t thay say that battle filed 3 was running it wasent that on PS3 and Xbox360 then yes Wii U will be able to do it to
just imagine pic-min 3/ or new metroid prime game
with frost bite 2.0 engin
Metroid Prime 4 FTW!!!!!!!!!!! I’m DYING to find out what the ship is at the end of Prime 3 :)
Same here. Plus, with a new Metroid Prime game it seems like they could really experiment with new things.
I’m also wanting to know to. The next Metroid game better be a direct sequel to MP3

If EA decides to develop a new game using the Frostbite 2.0 engine on the Wii U, it’s a definite must have!
Gothenburg? Yay! That’s my hometown! :D
I’ll finally have a decent job! ^.^
I look forward to seeing what comes of this. This is unrealistic but what if the next Zelda game ran on the frostbite engine? That would kick ass.
Well this should definitely include the Wii U since its a “next-generation” console.
Can’t wait to hear more details bout Madden 13 and how it’ll run on Wii U
the word above HOTEL is a translation for Hotel in Arabic Language but its written in backwards :)
