No FrostBite 3 For Wii U Means No Dragon Age 3 And Mass Effect 4

No Frostbite 3 means we won't be seeing the next generation of either franchise on Nintendo's console.

As it was reported earlier, DICE announced that Frostbite 3 wouldn’t be arriving on the Wii U. This also means that Battlefield 4, which was revealed at GDC 2013, won’t be arriving for Nintendo’s console.

Of course, this also means that Dragon Age III: Inquisition and the next Mass Effect won’t be arriving on the Wii U as a result. This is concerning, but since both games will be using Frostbite 3, this effectively disqualifies the Wii U from supporting both major Bioware franchises.

The Wii U has been on a big downturn since its release with the reduced sales. Then again, its next generation status has been in doubt considering that the console has played host to many of the previous iterations of those franchises.

So we can consider that the next generation of Dragon Age and Mass Effect won’t arrive on the Wii U due to the limitations of Frostbite 3. This could mean a limited version of the engine arrives later, but it seems like a long shot at this point.
