The new mobile engine will be called “Frostbite Go.” EA’s recent job openings hinted at work being done on it, but nothing was official until now. At the beginning of the year, EA was also hiring in positions that indicate Frostbite could come to Mac OS X as well.
Runtime in Frostbite supports a highly scalable model in order to appeal to the diverse array of platforms available on today’s market.
