EA has revealed that they are currently working on a “high-end” Battlefield game for mobile platforms. This is going to be one of a kind, featuring exceptional performance, visuals and playability.
The news was revealed by EA’s recently-appointed head of mobile development, Frank Gibeau, who in an interview with The New York Times Bits blog was asked if Battlefield will work fine with smaller screens or not.
He answered, “You can play Battlefield on a tablet in commander mode. We are working on a mobile game of Battlefield that will be high-end and high-performance. It’s our bet that we can successfully pull that off.
“But we’re embarking on something no one has ever done before–to get these games to inter-operate between platforms,” he added. “Will it work? It already has in some cases. Will it work for all franchises? Not all franchises will make the transition. Battlefield might be a little harder.”
Gibeau didn’t mention on what mobile platforms the game is in development for. Previously there has been only one Battlefield title and that too was released only for iOS platforms back in 2011. The game was released around the same time Battlefield: Bad Company 2 launched.
It’s a high probability that the new Battlefield game will run on DICE’s Frostbite Go engine that powers games like Need for Speed and Battlefield and which supports “all major mobile platforms.”
