DICE posted a job listing for a Mac OS X engineer to work with a team to bring the Frostbite 2 engine to Mac users.
Frostbite is looking for developers who want to join us in taking our engine to the next level. You will be part of a team focusing on bringing Frostbite to Mac and work closely with game team customers and the Frostbite team to deliver an engine as great on OS X as it is on Windows and traditional console platforms.
What does this mean per say? We could possibly see a Battlefield 3 version for Mac computers (the ones that can handle it anyway), also any future games from perhaps a possible Frostbite 3 or any other Frostbite 2 engine games will probably also be available on the Mac. Ultimately, Mac users will no longer need to use Bootcamp or any similar program to play certain DICE games.
Along with this well timed job listing, EA’s Origin recently came out of beta for Mac, bringing a small but versatile group of games to the Mac platform. No doubt more games will be added to Origin’s online store in the future.
By the looks of it, Mac users are becoming more integrated into the gaming community (although somewhat shunned) with comapanies like Activision Blizzard and DICE leading the way in cross-PC-platform gaming, whilst Valve and EA are working on their respective stores being accessible by all!
