Mac gamers may be getting another small step towards PC parity, as Battlefield 3 and Frostbite 2 developer DICE has expressed an interest in bringing the engine to Apple's platform. The port would make it easier for EA to offer Mac versions of not just Battlefield, but various other titles that have started using the engine.
A job listing for a Mac OSX Engineer states the intent to port the engine in no uncertain terms, and says the company wants to "deliver an engine as great on OS X as it is on Windows and traditional console platforms." Frostbite has become the de facto standard for many EA games lately, even in non-shooters like Need for Speed: The Run and the upcoming Command & Conquer. Maybe a day will come that we'll see those games, or others like it, hitting the Mac platform.
Steve Watts posted a new article, DICE aims to bring Frostbite to Mac.
DICE is working on porting the Frostbite engine to the Mac, according to a job listing from the company.
This along with the recent Mac beta of Origin means that we may not only get Mac versions of the Mass Effect series (Unreal engine is already ported to the Mac) but it looks like the next gen versions of Dragon Age and Mass Effect will be making it there too. EXCELLENT news.
