Does EA still want to make Mirror's Edge 2 a reality?

Posted on July 14, 2012 - 9:40am by Ryan Conway

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.

"We love Faith. We love the property. It's really about how and when do you bring it back? It's on the list. It's just about looking at what teams are available, who's got the right quality approach to it, and who understands it." 

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.
