EA puts Mirror’s Edge on hold

Written by David Stellmack


DICE to focus on Battlefield 3 instead
Those waiting for a sequel to Mirror’s Edge are going to have to wait a lot longer, as Electronic Arts has apparently put the sequel on hold after being shown a prototype. Instead, developer DICE has been told to focus all efforts on Battlefield 3.

While Mirror’s Edge 2 apparently deserves a sequel, according to EA CEO John Riccitiello, and many at DICE apparently believe that it is just a matter of time before this happens, the fact is that the first one didn’t sell all that well; and given the recent lackluster sales of other EA titles, it is understandable that the publisher wants to focus on titles that they believe have the best chance of sales success.

EA apparently does not have any comment about the future of Mirror’s Edge other than to say that DICE is working on Battlefield 3. Our sources tell us that DICE still wants to do it and will likely continue to push to do it, and if Battlefield 3 sells well they just might get to do it. From the whispers we hear it isn’t dead yet, but we would not expect it anytime soon.

Shame, Mirror' Edge was one of those strangely different, enjoyable experiences that didn't just encourage running around, shooting each other... well, maybe the former.

But it was soooooo pretty...

Im hoping the BF3 will be superb and have more than just run shoot duck shoot blam blam blam, but some kind of feeling, you know the one you got when playing HL2, speaking of which where is hl2:ep3?!

Have to admit that I think the maps in BFbc2 are the most beautiful i have ever played in although the game isnt really polished

Personally I'm not that excited about the episodes. Sure, they're fun, but they're not as mysterious or as exciting as loading up Half Life 2 for the first time. Here's hoping that Half Life 3 is based on a new engine with different gameplay!

I agree with you completely, BC2 was a beautiful game. Though Mirror's Edge just had something original about it, and I really want such beautiful, well-done games to succeed.

I really love Mirror's Edge; it was a game that took me by surprise as thrilling and fun. I was mightily impressed by the Graphics and art style of the game. I grew to respect the main character as she took on a police state all by herself. I also loved the bright colors that were rampant, it truly gave the game a unique look. I wish the world looked as pretty as Mirror's Edge depicts it...

Aww, sad news. Mirrors Edge was cool, had very fun elements just it could be deeper.

The developers understand what was and is BF2 - and if they will not support the correct transition to BF3, all that BF2 brand accumulated (a huge amount of players/buyers)that potential will be lost, if they succeed than even guys like me playing BF2 for 5 years - definitely will purchase the product
