EA Seeking Oculus Rift Programmers for Frostbite Engine

Finally, the prospect of a new, more nauseating Mirror's Edge!

Oculus Rift
In perhaps the first kind of publisher enthusiasm we’re seeing towards the VR headset, EA has posted a programmer job listing for experience in C++ and VR technology. It specifically talks about working with Oculus Rift and the Frostbite Engine, seeing in games like Battlefield.

The job description is essentially looking for some one who can “Explore existing research for relevant subjects”, “investigate and implement support for Occulus [sic] Rift SDK in the Frostbite Engine” and “investigate and implement techniques for improving user experience.”

Oh, and also? You gotta move to Sweden. How’s about that for the future of game development?

Now the question is: What could EA be planning specifically for the technology? NeoGAF is already talking about ideas involving a next-generation Battlefield or Mirror’s Edge that utilize the VR headset to immerse gamers further.

Currently, the Oculus Rift headset is available for $300 on pre-order and comes with both a development kit and SDK.
