For a while now we’ve been hearing quite whisperings about a Mirror’s Edge 2. The rumored sequel has been confirmed and unconfirmed a few times now but this week at E3, EA Games Label boss Frank Gibeau claims that they are working on ideas for a sequel and it will likely be running on the Frostbite 2 engine. Apparently the studio is just trying to find a way to bring it back, something worthy and notable. They don’t want to just rush out a half assed sequel, which makes perfect sense.
“We haven’t killed Mirror’s Edge, we’re actively looking at how to bring it back in the right way, he said. We love that franchise, the DICE guys really created something special the first time round and you’ve got to have a big idea to be able to do the next one and that’s what we’re working on.”
Just hang in there folks. The team is actively working on it and I’m sure (and I hope) it won’t be too long until we get an official announcement. Mirror’s Edge, despite being quite frustrating at times, was a very neat game and truly enjoyable. A sequel would be fantastic, if done right. And with the Frostbite 2 engine powering it, this could be something really special. Wouldn’t you agree?
