EA’s New Ignite Engine Shown Running Next-Gen Titles
In a huge montage trailer for their upcoming sports titles, EA showed us several clips of the next-gen titles they would be releasing on the Xbox One. Unnamed titles in the FIFA, UFC, Madden NFL and NBA Live franchises were all confirmed by EA as well as showing off how they run on the brand new Ignite engine that EA have been developing.
After showing us the footage of the new games, Andrew Wilson from EA Sports confirmed that all of their new sports titles would be running on this innovative game engine. All four of the new titles are expected to launch within the year.
Frank Gibeau, president of EA Labels, hinted at this cross-game engine earlier in the month when he said that Ignite and DICE’s Frostbite 3 engine would be able to power “all of our development on the new systems”, suggesting that they might have some compatibility with one another.
