Frostbite Engine coming to the Mac

DICE, the swedish developers behind the hardcore First-Person Shooter Battlefield 3, is planing on bringing their state of the art engine to the Mac.

According to a recent job posting at their website, DICE is actively looking for a Mac OS X engineer to help take their engine to “the next level”:

Frostbite is looking for developers who want to join us in taking our engine to the next level. You will be part of a team focusing on bringing Frostbite to Mac and work closely with game team customers and the Frostbite team to deliver an engine as great on OS X as it is on Windows and traditional console platforms.

This of course is not yet a reality, as the project is barely starting. However, the possibilities are very exiting! By bringing their engine Frostbite 2 to the Mac, both DICE and EA could bring their best games to the Mac without much problems. Just imagine having Battlefield 3, Need for Speed: The Run or even Medal of Honor on the Mac…

Frostbite on Mac - Need for Speed Mac

The Run would be a great addition to Mac racing games…

This would also mean more chances to get future Frostbite-games such as Battlefield 4, Dragon Age III: Inquisition or even future Mass Effect games!

Have you ever played a Frostbite 2 game? Are you exited about DICE bringing it to the Mac? Don’t forget to leave a comment!

    The timing makes sense, now that they are bringing Origin to Mac.

      Indeed! Some support from EA will definitely be welcomed! (even if it comes in the shape of the generally hated Origin service….).

    I really like this site I am switching to mac soon (I’m a little mad my computer crashed when I just finished what I wrote so two times a charm.) I was a PC user but didn’t use it much for gaming I used my xbox due to that is where my friends are and in addition halo is my favorite game series. I have a few questions.

    – What macbook should I get don’t know much about mac computers or in this case laptops (Due to money what would be better 13-inch or 15-inch macbook pro the ones without “retina display”). I would use it for gaming, school, and me and a group of friends wanna try game making and plan on making it run best for mac. It’s just us having fun it may never get done but I will keep you guys updated the support would help you never know it might be the next indie game of the year.

    – How well does Roman:Total War run on mac. This is my favorite RTS.

    – What games run well for mac any to stay away from. Though I think I’m going to stay a xbox player because that’s were my friends are.

    – How well does this “bootcamp” thing for running windows work.

    – Should I make a new engine (The reason I ask is I hear about people who make a engine but it takes so long they give up and never start the game itself.) or look for a engine meant for mac I would take a look at any links you guys would give me. I would also like the opinion of you guys.

    – I would be open to ideas we were thinking of a platformer just as a starting point. Me and my group is kinda lost but like I said it’s just for fun.

    I really enjoy this site and feedback would be great. I know this is off topic but I would enjoy help.
    Ric M your site has helped me alot. How I found it was through the “The State Of Mac Gaming” post. Yeah I would enjoy the help I think I’m going to enjoy mac. Very sorry if I’m illegible.
