EA's Frostbite engine coming to Mac, says DICE job listing

Electronic Arts may be bringing more of its games to the Mac platform, based on a job listing calling for developers with experience porting Windows applications to Mac OS X.

Battlefield series developer DICE has an active job listing for a "Mac OS X Engineer" to aid in the development of bringing its Frostbite engine to Mac. The job listing says the Mac dev team will "deliver an engine as great on OS X as it is on Windows and traditional console platforms."

The move to bring Frostbite-powered games and the upcoming release of SimCity and the Origin client to Mac may be indicative of a more concentrated effort to expand Electronic Arts' PC reach.

DICE's Frostbite engine is used in many EA-published titles, including Battlefield 3, Need for Speed: The Run and the upcoming free-to-play Command & Conquer. The next Dragon Age and Mass Effect games are said to use Frostbite as well.
