FIFA 19 will not use DICE’s Frostbite Engine on Nintendo Switch, but that doesn’t mean that it will look the same as last year’s entry.

Speaking to Dream Team, Andrei Lazarescu, supervising producer for the FIFA World Cup mode, revealed that FIFA 19 will run on a custom engine on Switch and feature “vastly superior graphics” compared to last year’s entry.

“I’m not closing the door on that possibility,” Lazarescu said when asked about Frostbite being used in the future. “However we didn’t want to create a dumbed-down version of the frostbite engine.”

Some of the improvements that players can expect to see were included in the recent World Cup update, such as face paint and hats in the crowd.

FIFA fans will get their first look at FIFA 19 in action later this month at EA Play.
