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.
