Could Electronic Arts and Bioware in the next part of Mass Effect put on the Unreal Engine of Epic instead of continuing to use the in-house frostbite engine of DICE? Notes can be found according to Venturebeat in a current job advertisement for the search for a technical director for the project, in which explicitly searched for candidates with Unreal experience.
Author Jeff Grubb has also tapped its sources that confirmed that apparently a change from frostbite to unreal is discussed. For Mass Effect, it would be a return to the roots: the first three parts and the recently published Legendary Edition were created with the Unreal Engine. Only with Mass Effect: Andromeda was chosen for the Frostbite Engine, which was originally considered that they should be used for all games of EA. For more prominent exceptions, Respawn Entertainment, which has also been part of the Publisher’s studio family, has already taken place in the Publisher Studio Family: The Titanium Case and Apex Legends teamed by Vince Zampella on a modified source engine of Valve, while for Star Wars: Jedi Fall Order the Unreal Engine 4 used as a technical scaffolding.
