Technical director Johan Andersson for Frostbite 3, DICE's proprietary engine, is currently being used in over 15 game projects. He also confirmed the recent AMD Mantle support would 'roll out' to all titles.

Known titles using Frostbite 3 include the imminently due Battlefield 4, the announced Star Wars: Battlefront and Mirror's Edge 2. Those three are just with DICE.

Other notable titles are Need for Speed: Rivals, Command & Conquer, BioWare's Dragon Age: Inquisition and next Mass Effect, and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare.

What other projects has EA got on the go using the destruction friendly Frostbite 3? "Had a great time with the Mass Effect team, really looking forward to working more with them!" posted Johan Andersson on Instagram.

The revelation of there being over 15 games using the game engine came from an AMD Mantle question to which Andersson tweeted: "...the plan is once Mantle in #BF4 is done it's part of Frostbite & mostly 'out of the box' to use the rest of our 15+ games" Mantle is AMD's new Application Programming Language tailored to their GPU tech.

Battlefield 4 releases on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 October 29th. Need for Speed: Rivals releases on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 November 19th. Dragon Age: Inquisition releases on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One and PS4 in late 2014.

Not my favourite developer these days, but I'll keep my mind open.

This sounds quite promising for Mantle, I doubt EA would invest themselves with it this much if it wasn't meaningful in some way.

Lets hope DICE won't be closed down like Lucasarts, after Lucasarts demonstrated their brand new engine tech.
