Does EA still want to make Mirror's Edge 2 a reality?
While the parkour infused, first-person action title Mirror’s Edge wasn’t necessarily the breakout hit EA may have wanted it to be, the game has spawned a fairly large cult following over the past four years. A cult following that has been quite vocal about wanting a sequel.
EA has responded to this request in the past, stating the company wants to make a sequel and even going as far to say that it could possibly be developed by members of the DICE team with the Frostbite 2 engine.
During an interview for the latest issue of Game Informer, EA president Frank Gibeau was (yet again) asked about the possibility of Mirror’s Edge 2. Was he able to finally confirm the highly requested sequel? Not quite. While he did say EA is still interested in eventually continuing the franchise, he also said the publisher has nothing to announce at this point.
While this isn't exactly the best news, it's a good sign that EA is not only willing to eventually deliver a sequel but to take the necessary time to make sure it lives up to its full potential.
Exactly, but they don't want to let go. They would rather drag the entire industry with them. Wich is pretty much the problem with a our world in general, old greedy persons ruining it for everybody.
Amen brother (or sister)
They also miss out on the point for a series to get big, they have to put actual effort into making them popular and earning millions.
But no, the future of the Triple A industry is down to a bunch of moronic old men and women who don't even know what diversity is.
As strong as my distaste for EA is, I'm still willing to support fresh IPs. I loved Mirror's Edge, even if I didn't buy it at full price. i want to see a sequel.
I would buy it.
Easter eggs? Yes, that way, they'll want a sequel and then when they tell us they already wanted a sequel we'll blame them for it not happening. Genius marketing!
Great to hear that they still have plans for making a sequel but a bit worried EA will find a way to ruin it a bit from a dumb business decision.
Maybe she'll be a cameo in the audience of a Madden game or something.
The worst thing is, for shareholders, they know nothing about the market, what gamers want and they lack basic knowledge of how such a system work. They do not seem to realise they would make more money by actually putting effort and diversity instead of cathering to the stereotype of the average neanthertal and re-release the same monochromatic first and third person cover based shooters. Or a pretentious platform game or a dumbed down fighter.
They damn well better, I really enjoyed Mirrors Edge and really want a sequel.
Heck, out of the three EA games that came out in that timespan, Dead Space was my least favorite out of Mirrors Edge and Brutal Legend.
Those do sound like fun MP modes to be honest.
I would seriously play the shit out of that.
I think he is still working there, but too afraid to try something like that again.
I bloody hate how the shareholders dictate what games get made.
It's not a monochromatic shooter, it won't happen. It's the same reason why there won't be a Brutal Legend 2. Didn't the head of EA almost loose is job because the share holders didn't like the idea? So now he's working in the salt mines, pushing out more brown and grey shooters.
Also, EA, if you are reading this (which you arent) a good idea for possible multiplayer is to have capture the flag, a cops and robbers chase mode, and possible deathmatch with pistols (if I remember correctly, you could parkour with pistols)
Frostbite 2 in a white city? Dear god, the bloom effects are going to be blinding! That said, I cannot wait for Mirrors Edge 2!
