Mirror's Edge
Mirror's Edge 2? EA is "Working on Something" Says Soderlund

Talking to GameStar at E3 2011, EA's European Senior Vice President, Patrick Söderlund confirmed that there could be something in the pipeline as far as the Mirror's Edge franchise is concerned, amid reports earlier this year that the project had stalled.

"I loved Mirror’s Edge and what we did with Mirror’s Edge," said Söderlund. "We have not abandoned the franchise and we're working on something, but I’m not willing to talk more about that."

At this year's E3, EA Games President Frank Gibeau also apparently hinted that the next Mirror's Edge title will utilise DICE's proprietary Frostbite 2.0 Engine, currently powering the rather lovely-looking Battlefield 3.

Despite failing to perform all that well at retail, the demand for a Mirror's Edge sequel seems unusually high, and goodness knows that the game demonstrated masses of potential. We'll be keeping an ear to the ground for something more substantial on Mirror's Edge 2, hopefully in the near future. We have 'Faith' it'll happen... Tee-hee.

Mirror's Edge is one of my all time favorites. I just love the speedruns. I never got bored of it for a second. It's a game I can always go back to and have an awesome time. Really hope this 2nd one is gonna work out.

One of my favourite games of all time. I really wish they WILL eventually make a sequel in the near future. Please, DICE, complete your job on BF3 and then move on Mirror's Edge 2 before making another Battlefield. Please.

Mirrors Edge was a fantastic game, but hope they will add more detail to the environments now they are using frostbite 2

this are great news... I can't wait, I hope in ME2 we can get more free roaming, in which u can choose several different paths to the mission's goal, and maybe with multiple charachter with different abilities, like jump higher or more acrobatic... just wow

@9 I've been hoping for a more open/free roamish Mirrors Edge since the first. That game was massively underrated though!!!

ME was a great game though the story and characters were fairly terrible. Still, the style and gameplay were really cool. Should head back and try to knock off those speed runs. Be keen to see if ME2 gets off the ground.

Ohh man, this is the best headline for a VERY long time, i have been waiting for a sequel since the first Mirrors Edge. And with Frostbite going on, this can only be freaking awsome. Thumbs up for DICE, im getting my pre-order ready.

I got big expectations for Mirrors Edge 2 :D

The frostbite engine is all over EA games, huh? I'm going to see if I can add it to my daily life for more destruction on my way to work. Since its me, it will still be in first person.

I just hope they not only make the 2nd one easier but dump the bulk of the time trials as they were insanely and unfairly hard.

same game, with 5 things added
1.longer levels
2.multi paths guns
5. extra extra time trials

can u imagine a co-op mode were u need boost ups, swing jumps, if one misses a jump other player to catch them, but split second reactions and then the time trials with coop mode will keep u coming back again and again

sorry those saying time trials were hard ur right but there suppost to be hard, thats the beauty of it. perfect runs or restart, it needed perfection so when u done it u felt great
