DICE's technical director Johan Andersson has revealed that the Frostbite 3 engine, the same engine that will be running Battlefield 4 and the next titles in the Dragon Age and Mass Effect series, is not able to run on Nintendo's Wii U console.

The response comes after a fan questioned whether any titles running on the Frostbite 3 engine would be coming to Wii U, which Andersson explained that previous experiments with the Frostbite 2 engine yielded "not too promising" results, choosing not to "go down that path."

The confirmation of Frostbite 3 not running on the Wii U has also put a damper on those expecting any upcoming Star Wars games to be available for the console after the recent Disney and EA agreement, with Andersson revealing that all games developed under DICE or Visceral will be running on the Frostbite 3 engine.

Poor Wii-U, the new consoles aren't even out yet and its already old tech

Yeah.. It will be interesting to see how the Wii U sales go in comparison to the Wii. I highly doubt I will get a Wii U, I bought a Wii and I dare say I'm not the only one. A major factor being that the Wii didn't live up to the hype and rarely got used. Even my home brew exploits on it failed, using it as a media player failed.

All in all, the idea of buying a relatively under-powered console is not even on the list of possibilities. What is the point really?

Especially considering that the latest round of phones are probably coming pretty close to the performance of the Wii-U, and will be well beyond it before this generation is over.
