Frostbite 3 Confirmed for Mass Effect 4 and Dragon Age 3: Inquisition
Bioware Montreal studio director meanwhile trolls the media.
Studio director at BioWare Montréal Yanick Roy is a fun dude. A few months ago he stated that the next Mass Effect would be running on the Frostbite Engine. At the time, everyone assumed he meant Frostbite 2. Today, Roy tweeted the following:
Kotaku’s Stephen Totilo pointed out how he thought that Frostbite 2 was being used, which lead to Roy clarifying that he never specified which version was being used.
Then again, we did sort of think that it meant the next iteration of Frostbite. Just that it would be a modified version of Frostbite 2, tentatively referred to as Frostbite 2.5.
Totilo then brought up a link from EA PR itself which said that Frostbite 2 was being used. Roy’s response?
So there: Let it not be said that game devs can not keep secrets from the world and then successfully gloat about it afterwards.
On the plus side, this means the next generation of Bioware RPGs are going to look better than ever. Thoughts?
