Sweden-based DICE diversion studio, owned by EA as well as well known for high-end console as well as Personal Computer games similar to Mirror’s Edge as well as BattleField, not long ago posted a pursuit announcement for a Mac OS X Engineer to work upon a company’s Frostbite gaming engine.
Here’s anticipating which as most EA games as operate a Frostbite engine will come to Mac OS X in a entrance years.
The Frostbite engine was grown by EA’s Digital Illusions CE (DICE), which additionally combined a Battlefield series. The engine is now used upon Windows, PlayStation 3, Wii U, as well as Xbox 360 gaming platforms. While it was creatively combined for first-person-shooter (FPS) games, it has been blending to energy racing as well as real-time plan (RTS) games for a series of EA titles as well as studios.
The job posting is sincerely undeniable in what it’s seeking for as well as why, saying:
Frostbite is seeking for developers who wish to stick upon us in receiving a engine to a subsequent level. You will be partial of a group focusing upon bringing Frostbite to Mac as well as work closely with diversion group business as well as a Frostbite group to broach an engine as good upon OS X as it is upon Windows as well as normal console platforms.
The inventory asks for 5 or some-more years of program engineering, with a concentration upon OS X, Open GL digest programming experience, as well as believe of porting Windows games to Mac OS X.
While you can surmise all day about what games competence be entrance to Mac as a outcome of such a hire, which would be insane of us. However, should EA confirm to move Dragon Age III: Inquisition, already scheduled for late 2013, to a Mac, nothing of us here would complain.
