We may be very close to at long last seeing EA’s Frostbite engine running on Switch! This has been rumored for a while, at least since Jeff Grubb mentioned EA’s possible slate for Switch from their EA Play event until the year after. One of the games mentioned was Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered, which hadn’t been revealed at all at the time (hell it might’ve been the very first peep ever of the game!). And sure enough, it was revealed and released for Switch and other systems this past holiday season. Among that list was Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, which happens to run on Forstbite (as did the two prior Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare games as well).
Well now GameFly’s spilled the beans and it’s not only going to release on Switch, but it will be the Complete Edition, AND sooner than you’d think; on Match 19th, 2021 if it’s accurate!
Hopefully this will be revealed very soon (it has to be if it’s out in only two months). And most importantly still uses Frostbite and will pave the way for more serious support from EA since they HEAVILY rely on that engine for practically everything they make these days. Maybe FIFA 22 will actually be a proper, Frostbite-powered version based on the PS4 and XBO versions this time! Wouldn’t that be nice?
