Frostbite 3, the next generation focused engine that DICE inaugurated with the development of Battlefield 4 seems like their jack of all trades instead of being an engine dedicated to shooter games or Battlefield 4 for that matter.
According to a tweet form Frostbite’s technical director Johan Andersson, DICE is going to be using the engine for a great majority of their upcoming next generation games. The number of games mentioned by him was“15+” and that says a lot.

We also learn that they are going to be all hands on deck for in the coming years. So far we only know about half of those 15 games and this includes speculations too. Here’s the known list:
- Battlefield 4
- Need for Speed: Rivals
- Mirror’s Edge 2
- Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare
- Dragon Age: Inquisition
- Star Wars: Battlefront
- The New Mass Effect Game (untitled so far)
Other than these we can assume, based on the hints and nudges from the developer that Bad Company’s next game could be using Frostbite 3. They have also shared previously that Battlefield 5 is being thought over so there’s that too. Lastly, BioWare and Visceral Games are working on Star Wars new titles and it could be that they have decided to stick with the best engine that EA has so far.
Obviously, when I say that I do not mean that they don’t have anything else worthwhile, Titanfall has its own engine and boy does it look good!
Nevertheless, there is still a lot of room for speculations, do you have some in mind?
