EA working on Battlefield for mobile
Authored by Williams Pelegrin
In an interview with The New York Times, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau confirmed that a “high-end” Battlefield mobile game is currently in development.
Gibeau did not reveal explicit details about the game itself, though he did note that it would be a high-performance mobile game:
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. 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.
The last time we saw a Battlefield game for mobile was in 2010 with Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for iOS, which was ported to the Kindle Fire in 2012. The game will likely be powered by series developer DICE’s Frostbite Go engine, an offshoot of the Frostbite 3 engine.
