EA is working on a Battlefield game for mobile platforms

Monday, 21st October 2013 16:57 GMT By Sherif Saed

Electronic Arts is working on “high-end” Battlefield game to be released for mobile platforms, according to EA’s recently-appointed head of mobile development, Frank Gibeau.

In an interview with The New York Times Bits blog, Gibeau answered the question of whether Battlefield will be a valid option for small screens.

He answered, “You can play Battlefield on a tablet in commander mode. We are working on a mobile game of Battlefield that will be high-end and high-performance. It’s our bet that we can successfully pull that off.

“We’re embarking on something no one has ever done before — to get these games to inter-operate between platforms. Will it work? It already has in some cases. Will it work for all franchises? Not all franchises will make the transition. Battlefield might be a little harder,” he added.

The only Battlefield game that was ever released on mobiles was an iOS only affair, released back in 2011. It coincided with the release of Battlefield: Bad Company 2. It would be a safe bet to suggest that the new game will be running on DICE’s Frostbite Go engine.

Would you play a Battlefield game on an iPhone?

Thanks, Gamespot.

    But will it have a companion app for the companion app for the companion app, though?

    Because I’m all about companion apps. We’ve waited 20-30 to get to this, and now it’s here. If you had told me 20 years ago that I would be doing menial repetitive tasks for meaningless points or stat increases on another platform from the one that I actually bought the game on, I would’ve told you “God no, but it sounds wonderful”.

    Just like how BFBC2 on iOS turned out? No thanks, touch controls dont work properly for games like that.
