EA: Mirror's Edge 2 In Development

Following word from EA CEO John Riccitiello that the Mirror's Edge franchise will continue, Electronic Arts has confirmed that a small team is now at work on the sequel.

"You will see another Mirror's Edge for sure," said EA Europe VP Patrick Soderlund to Videogamer. "It's just a matter of when that time is and what we do with it. We have a small team on it and I'm excited about what we do." Originally planned as a trilogy of games, the franchise's sequel potential was called into question after the disappointing debut of Mirror's Edge last November.

DICE's parkour-inspired, first-person action title was released during the crowded holiday season to lukewarm reviews and slow sales. The title went on to eventually pass the 1 million mark, despite DICE's sales target of over 3 million units.

"The game wasn't perfect by any means," said Soderlund. "We would have liked the game to sell better even though the game has sold better than most people think."

    Rental. I made the mistake of purchasing the first one. While it was decent, it just felt more like a rental to me. Once you get over the pretty pictures and cool perspective there's really not much else to it.

      I enjoyed it on the PC, but waited for the price to drop. I can't imagine paying about $60 for this game like some of the console guys, especially when the controls weren't up to the PC's level. There are areas that can be improved and I'm assuming ME 2 will address them, so I'll buy when it's cheap.

        I'm hanging out for a Steam weekend deal.

        Might be a while though, I don't think any EA games have been given the slow content server weekend treatment yet.
