We’ve already heard that DICE’s Frostbite Engine 3 will not be compatible with Wii U given its “not too promising” test results with Frostbite 2, but the consequences of this could be much graver than they initially appeared; according to Frostbite technical director Stefan Boberg, 15 EA games are currently in development using Frostbite 3, which may skip Wii U entirely due to its alleged incompatibility with the engine.
Among the games that the console could be missing out on are BioWare’s RPGs Mass Effect 4 and Dragon Age 3, DICE’s own Battlefield 4, Need for Speed 2013, Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel, and EA’s unannounced Star Wars games. Those are some pretty big releases from the company, so seeing them skip out on Wii U altogether would be quite a blow for the console regardless of how you slice it.
