Plans for the engine were originally announced in October last year. The technology currently powers Battlefield 3 and Need for Speed: The Run. No further information or release date was made available.

EA Games label boss Patrick Soderlund revealed last year that the current version of the game engine--Frostbite 2--was originally designed to support next-generation games.

DICE's Battlefield 4 will be the first game to be released on the Frostbite 3 engine, to be followed by Dragon Age III: Inquisition, and the next Mass Effect game.
