DICE explains why Frostbite skipped Wii U
Developer says it ran tests on Nintendo hardware with "not-too-promising results" and so "chose not to go down that path."
Frostbite engine developer DICE has explained why the technology is not supported on Wii U.
According to comments from Frostbite technical director Johan Andersson (via NeoGAF), early tests left much to be desired.
"[Frostbite 3] has never been running on Wii U," Andersson said on Twitter. "We did some tests with not too promising results with [Frostbite 2] & chose not to go down that path."
The new Electronic Arts-produced Star Wars games from DICE and Visceral Games revealed yesterday will run on the Frostbite 3 game engine. These titles were not named outright.
