Battlefield dev looks to next-gen

The folks over at Swedish developer DICE look to have their sights set on next-generation systems.

According to a job listing on Gamasutra, the Battlefield dev is looking for a Senior Software Engineer whose tasks will include optimizing the studio’s famed Frostbite engine, “implementing new features and workflows for content creators, keeping track of performance and memory and optimizing for current- and next gen.”

This shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, as everywhere you look these days someone in the industry is looking towards forthcoming hardware. Even still, knowing that a Battlefield 4 (very likely), Mirror’s Edge 2 (maybe), or even a brand new IP (we’ll see) could be coming to future systems should comfort at least a handful of players out there.
