DICE Jobs Page Lists Oculus Rift-Focused Internship

Battlefield developer DICE seems to be eyeing up the Oculus Rift in some capacity, based on a job listing geared toward college students working on a VR-related master thesis.

“The master thesis will focus on next generation VR technology and how to best implement support in video games,” the description reads. “This requires adding basic support in existing technology. Other areas of interest include modifications to better fit first person games, reducing latency, stereoscopic issues.”

The internship is non-paid and requires association with a University, as well as relocation to Stockholm, Sweden.

By all accounts, DICE is simply researching potential integration between Oculus Rift and their Frostbite engine—perhaps as a way to bring the next Battlefield or future Frostbite-driven games to as as many platforms as possible. There is nothing about the job listing that suggests, for sure, DICE intends to bring the next Battlefield to the Rift. But expansion and cross-platform release are certainly EA’s M.O.
