EA and DICE have both worked hard on the Frostbite 3 engine, which will be the engine of choice to power many of their next-generation games. But, it looks like EA won't be putting any Frostbite 3-powered games on Nintendo's Wii U console.
Technical Director of the Frostbite project at EA DICE, Johan Andersson, has said that they've tested Frostbite 2 on the Wii U and found the results to be "not too promising", going as far as they "chose not to go down [the] path" of porting over the next-gen engine. EA have around 15 games under development on the Frostbite 3 engine, which means Wii U owners are going to miss out on some seriously huge games.
Games such as Battlefield 4, the next-gen Mass Effect, Star Wars and many, many more. Not only are Wii U owners going to miss out, but this means Nintendo's sales are going to continue to dwindle, even more so when Microsoft and Sony unleash their consoles into gamers' hands.
