As such, i have removed on Wikipedia this false entry.
"David began programming Frontier on the Commodore 64, but then later moved development onto an Amiga computer which had far less limitations than the Commodore 64."
It took David Braben five years to develop Frontier: Elite II. He started programming it on Commodore 64 but eventually continued the development on Amiga computers instead, as the C64 was not only becoming out of fashion, but had way too many technical limitations for this type of game."
