Frostbite engine getting ported to Mac

Could lead to a number of titles being released
A recent ad has revealed that DICE is working on porting or adding Mac OS X capabilities to the Frostbite engine. The ad suggests that the move makes EA far more serious about gaining share in the Mac gaming software space; and once completed, it could see a number of EA titles using the Frostbite engine make their way to the Mac OS X platform.
The move seems to make a lot of sense after seeing EA’s Origin digital software delivery system head into testing for the Mac platform. Without Mac titles to sell, the move would seem to be a waste; and with all of the recent and upcoming releases that are using the Frostbite engine, it would seem only natural that EA would want to see DICE convert it to Mac OS X.
While we know that they are working on converting the engine, there is no word yet on what titles might be headed to the Mac, but a number of upcoming titles including Battlefield will use the Frostbite engine.
