EA Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment is currently looking at implementing Oculus Rift into the Frostbite game engine, which is being used for “Battlefield 4” and “Mass Effect 4.” According to a report by the NeoGAF forum on March 2, the developer is seeking a “master thesis” to investigate and implement the virtual reality headset into their internally-developed engine.

The multiplayer beta for “Battlefield 4” is expected to begin sometime later this year. The upcoming “Mass Effect” video game, which could be called “Mass Effect 4,” was announced to be in development in late 2012. The two games currently do not have a release date.
The Frostbite game engine was first released in 2008 with the launch of “Battlefield: Bad Company.” The latest version, Frostbite 2, debuted with the release of “Battlefield 3” in 2011. It will also be used for the aforementioned “Battlefield 4” and “Mass Effect 4.”
