EA Sports UFC 5 Will Not Use The Ignite Engine, per Brian Hayes

Paraphrasing but Brian on the Xbox live stream said, “With the more powerful hardware, safe to say we won’t be using the same engine we have for the last four games going forward.”

Frostbite, then? The only two engines I know that EA teams use are Ignite (UFC, NHL, NBA) and Frostbite (FIFA, Battlefield, Star Wars Battlefront/Squadrons, Need for Speed, Madden).

First off I love EA UFC. My gripe with this stream was many questions were asked but then deflected and there was very little transparency

So this is the only bit of info? Does this mean they have to redo everything from scratch (barring animations)?

Will it be featured on next week's EA Play?

Not really expecting it will, given it took so long for us to get info on EAUFC4.

Booted it again today and am still having fun with it. But after 5 careers it's getting stale.

I don't know much about the science behind creating video games, but this sounds like changing the engine of a game would mean a massive overhaul/undertaking. Are we gonna see a UFC game in 2022 if it's being rebuilt from the bottom up?

I can pretty much guarantee we wont be seeing anything related to UFC at EA Play.

Fifa and Madden made the Frostbite leap in one year but they also had significantly bigger teams.

So it'll take them years. Probably good long-term as gfx can't improve anymore and they risk going further backwards given this version's clinch game is perceived worse than eaufc3's.
