Now the Nintendo Switch is a successful success after being on the market for almost two years. Several companies are open to the idea of sending bigger and better games to the system. The giant EA of the third-party industry looks as if it can also be uping its game.
According to NintendoSoup, a Youtuber named Doctre81 has made an interesting discovery on an EA Software Engineer's LinkedIn website. The profile – not published – shows how the person has worked to bring existing software development sets to the Nintendo Switch. EA's Frostbite engine is not directly referenced, but the user continues to indicate how they have worked with the SDK previously used in Battlefield V and Anthem .
FIFA games on Switch are currently running on a tailor-made engine. If this profile page is correct, it suggests that EA can bring Frostbite engine support to the switch and games like FIFA on the system will use the same engine as the Xbox One and PS4 colleagues. There is also speculation this may result in other Frostbite games on the Nintendo hybrid platform in the future.
"We intentionally chosen to make a custom engine because we felt it either and try to get Frostbite to run and end up reducing things and make it just a smaller version of the PS4 and Xbox One version, we wished this was a FIFA as is on its own. "
Perhaps EA has since worked a way to get this engine up and running on the switch with fewer compromises.
What do you think? Want to see the Frostbite engine running on Switch and possibly more games from EA? Tell us below.
