A DICE presentation obtained by NeoGAF has revealed EA is working on 15 new titles developed using the Frostbite 3 game engine.
It makes sense for EA to make full use of its powerful in-house game engine, but the knock on effect on Wii U could be catastrophic. Wii U is not a supported platform for Frostbite 3, meaning these 15 titles are unlikely to be released on Nintendo's struggling console.
"[Frostbite 3] has never been running on WiiU. We did some tests with not too promising results with [Frostbite 2] and chose not to go down that path," Tweeted DICE technical director Johan Andersson.
So which games will the Wii U miss out on? EA has announced Battlefield 4, C&C Generals, Dragon Age 3, a new Mass Effect, Star Wars titles and Need for Speed all on Frostbite 3.
In addition, EA Sports is working on a next generation sports engine to power FIFA, Madden and NBA Live, and with Madden 14 not coming to Wii U future EA Sports support on Wii U is in doubt.
