We built Frostbite 2 for the next generation says EA

Battlefield 3 is just the beginning

EA is promising very good things from their Frostbite 2 game engine in the future especially when the next generation of consoles arrives.

The VP of EA Games Patrick Soderlund explained that Battlefield 3 is only the tip of the iceberg as far as what Frostbite 2 is capable of.

Soderlund stated, "Frostbite 2 was built for the next generation. That's how we started it."

He continued, "We had that in mind and we said, 'We're going to have to build something that can scale.' It doesn't mean that what you see in Battlefield 3 is the end state. That's the beginning; that's where we start and then we go forward. But we have a tech base that makes me feel really confident in how we're positioned for what's going to come in the future."

Thanks Gamasutra.
