EA Opens a Gothenburg Studio to Focus on the Frostbite 2 Engine

Posted Tue Mar 6, 2012 at 10:30 AM PST by Dick Ward

The Frostbite 2 engine is currently used in 'Battlefield 3,' and 'Need for Speed: The Run.'

'Battlefield 3' was more than just a killer multiplayer experience. It was also the first game to use the new Frostbite 2 engine.

EA must have been pretty pleased with Frostbite 2, because they just opened a new studio in Gothernburg, Sweden focusing exclusively on making games using the engine. The studio is currently hiring a boatload of new people for positions within the studio.

The studio hasn't revealed any information on what projects it will be tackling, but we expect to hear more once EA Gothenburg gets a full staff.
