Frostbite 2 Is BioWare's Go-To Engine
Although the Frostbite engine got plenty of attention via the Battlefield franchise, it can certainly be used for something besides shooters.
Heck, Frostbite 2 can be used for just about anything, as recent EA projects have proven. This also means that BioWare will be taking advantage of the powerful, versatile engine for quite some time.
In speaking to Game Informer (as cited by Gaming Everything), BioWare Edmonton general manager Aaryn Flynn said he "thinks" that all upcoming projects will feature Frostbite 2, which really shouldn't disappoint anybody.
"I think so. When we look at Frostbite and the success we’re having with it with Dragon Age 3 and the support we’re getting from teams around EA, it’s fun being a part of an organization and community that’s doing good work with that technology."
Dragon Age III: Inquisition and the new Mass Effect are using the engine, and we can't wait to see those games in action. We're just wondering if Frostbite 2 is something that would make a smooth transition into the next generation of hardware. ...will we need Frostbite 3 by that time?
