Mirror's Edge
Industry CVs Fuel Hopes for Mirror's Edge 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 3

Some more LinkedIn profile action for you, following news of Saints Row 4 earlier today. References to Battlefield: Bad Company 3 and Mirror’s Edge 2 have been found on the business networking site, suggesting that work on the titles has taken place. 

It should be noted, however, that all mentions of the two games come from developers who are no longer working on the projects. What that means is there’s no evidence here to suggest the titles will ever see the light of day.

Michael Joseph C’s LinkedIn profile says that he “provided video game prototype, design and demo feedback on various AAA titles including the Battlefield: Bad Company 3, Dead Space 2, Devil May Cry 5 and other unannounced titles”, between 2009 and 2011.

Another profile from an ex-EA employee also states that the Software Engineer worked on Mirror’s Edge 2 in 2009, helping to create “the wandering of crowd system within Unreal3 engine”.

Furthermore, yet another ex-employee says that he worked on “new gadgets and interactive features,” “leaderboards” and a “mini-game embedded into mirror’s edge game story,” for a sequel to the free-running original.

While exciting - we love a bit of Mirror’s Edge - it's worth reaffirming that this information should not be taken as the leak for a forthcoming announcement. EA's European Senior Vice President, Patrick Söderlund did say last year that they're "working on something" Mirror's Edge related, but he kept it deliberately vague.

As for Battlefield: Bad Company 3, well, we'll have to see. Keep your fingers crossed for an E3 reveal of both.

seeing as how the dev team and a ton of fans were disappointed with BFBC2's "more serious tone", i really hope the series returns with the tongue in cheek humor we all know and love from the first

Really hoping for another Mirror's Edge game. It's the only game I truly loved along with Metal Gear Solid 4 this gen.

Mirror's Edge 2 would be amazing, but this isn't enough news to actually get me excited about it yet. I need a solid confirmation before I can start looking forward to a sequel.

I loved BFBC2, I think I even preferred it to BF3, so I'd love to see another.

Shouldn't really matter in the end as long as the game is fun and look somewhat good. Though it'd be strange to switch to Unreal (which is said to have issues on ps3 anyways) when they already had a well running engine for the first game.

I loved the first game, but sadly, the DLC challenge maps I did not like much. Something about the completely abstract design made it hard for me to judge distances ect properly, so I couldn't get good ratings like in the challenge maps that came with the disc. ???

Bad Company 3 would be awesome. Hopefully no blur and shit. Just Destruction!
