For those of you who were fans of the first Mirror’s Edge, you may have been wondering: Where’s the sequel? Back in late 2009, it was even said that Mirror’s Edge 2 was in the works, and now we’re over a year later without as much as a squeak. Thanks to a recent interview with EA Games’ President Frank Gibeau, we now have a better idea as to where the game has gone.
We’re looking at ideas for it, absolutely. We just haven’t figured out the right way to bring it back yet.” said Gibeau. “It was a franchise that reached an audience, but it didn’t reach a large audience, and from a quality standpoint it was good, not great.”
“Working with DICE, we’re really trying to figure out a way of bringing Faith and the Mirror’s Edge property back, but we just really haven’t crafted the idea yet. We’re looking at it,” Gibeau concluded.
Although many gamers enjoyed Mirror’s Edge, the statistics back that it wasn’t as big a hit as originally expected by the publisher. That in mind, it’s understandable that they’re holding back in an effort to ensure better success in the future.
I’d like to leave you all with a question: What would you like to see in Mirror’s Edge 2?
