DICE is building Mac OS X compatibility into future versions of its Frostbite engine, a job ad for the company has revealed.
According to the ad, the Battlefield 3 developer, which created Frostbite 2, is currently putting together a team to bring the engine to Apple's platform, and "deliver an engine as great on OS X as it is on Windows and traditional console platforms".
The move seems to make a lot of sense after seeing EA’s Origin digital software delivery system head into testing for the Mac platform. Without Mac titles to sell, the move would seem to be a waste; and with all of the recent and upcoming releases that are using the Frostbite engine, it would seem only natural that EA would want to see DICE convert it to Mac OS X.
Frostbite 2 has been used to power multiple EA titles, including Battlefield 3, Need For Speed: The Run and Medal of Honor: Warfighter. It's also being used in upcoming titles Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel and Command & Conquer, and is expected to be used in future versions of Mass Effect, Dragon Age and Battlefield.
