Battlefield dev working on next-gen

Swedish developer DICE seeking senior software engineer to optimize Frostbite game engine for next-generation systems.


Battlefield developer DICE is hiring for the next generation of systems. A job listing at the developer--posted to the Gamasutra game board--for a senior software engineer specifically calls out "next-gen."

According to the requisition, the person chosen for this position will work to optimize DICE's proprietary Frostbite game engine for current- and next-generation systems. Iterations of the destruction-centric engine powered Battlefield 3, Medal of Honor, and Need for Speed: The Run.

DICE is presently preparing a trio of Battlefield 3 downloadable content packs, but the studio's development docket beyond that is unknown.

There have been hints at the developer's future. Last July, EA Games senior vice president Patrick Soderlund said the studio had "not abandoned" the Mirror's Edge franchise. Additionally, Electronic Arts president Frank Gibeau reportedly stated during a presentation last November that, "There is going to be a Battlefield 4."
