Mirror’s Edge 2 was officially cancelled a while back – but EA has confirmed it has “not abandoned the franchise,” hinting that something is in production as we speak.
How does Dice have time to work on both this & BF3? If true they are a really talented Dev team.
Some development studios are broken into separate teams. At Insomniac Games, the guys who work on Resistance are not the exact same people who work on Ratchet & Clank.
Must be full on for them. Tools of Destruction, then Resistance 3, then All 4 One, then Overstrike...
They have been for a while, they tried to pitch it before back when the battlefield 3 announcement trailer was shown, but it was rejected. They did say they it wasn't the end for the franchise and its good to see talk about the project surfacing again
The game wasn't pitched and canceled. Just one direction of taking the sequel was pitched and canceled. People take things so far beyond their context.
I never said it was cancelled, it was rejected, I never actually said anything about it being cancelled? By rejected does that not indicate that the build shown was rejected, As is often the case with many game. Has nothing to do with being cancelled or axed at all and I never indicated that it did
They have been given the time to do both. Think about how long it has been since mirrors edge 1?
Man, a guy can only hope!
agreed, I really liked number one, very creative game.
Kinda pissed off ME wasn't in the Steam Summer sale. I really want to play it again.
Agreed. The first was very under appreciated. Let's hope number 2 does better in the sales department.
"DICE, make it so warp speed 7." like now!
I'm not entirely sure he was hinting at a ME2. It sounds like he could be trying to say that they are busy on other projecs, and while they they have a passion for the IP, they may not have the time to explore the sequel at the moment.
Look at how he said it, it is clear he talking about Mirrors Edge
He could be, but he said, "we're working on something" instead of "we're working on it", so I'm not 100% sure.
“We have not abandoned the franchise. And, you know, we are working on something ( clearly related to ME ) – but I’m not willing to talk more about that.”
Come on EA, make it happen! we need this kind of game not just another FPS after FPS with flashy graphic -_-
i loved mirrors edge everything about it
Really looking forward to more info on this. I originally had it for the PS3, but because I am getting rid of my PS3 and all the games I decided to get it for the 360 last week. I am loving it even more. I have completed story mode a few times, working on Time Trials and Speedruns at the moment. That's all I have left to do and I am pretty sure it will last me a few more weeks. Hopefully ME2 has everything that was in ME1 and more.
As I get older (and more cynical and jaded) the unique experiences in life start to stand out a bit more. Mirror's Edge is one such glorious example. Artistically and in its gameplay, it was completely unique and fun. In the COD era that we live in, I think this is worth preserving.
Another Mirror's Edge would be awesome!
Fingers crossed !
-i just found this game at kmart a week ago, last copy!, i never paid any attention to it all those years ago, is it as good as people say??
I would personally prefer Mirror's Edge 2 over Battlefield 3
Somewhere an angel just lost its wings, when you said that. =0)
I'm not going to lie, I do agree with you. Nothing against BF3 particularly, it's just, well, another modern military FPS, and whilst it does look really damn pretty, so would Mirror's Edge 2, assuming it's built on Frostbite 2 which would make a tonne of sense, and Mirror's Edge is one of the most unique games in years. Granted, the story, characters and gunplay need improving, but that isn't a flaw in the design concept, which would be the only reason to scrap the franchise altogether.
Oh, the things I would do for another Mirror's Edge game. :3
A Mirror's Edge 2 would be awesome, I LOVE the first game, its one of the best and most underrated games of this generation.
Please EA, do us another favor. It will sell better! Ill by 10 copies!
So a sequel to Mirrors Edge 2 won't happen for a while, hmm sounds like it could be a spinoff or something associated with Mirror Edges game style. Knowing the state of this generation it'll probably be Mirrors Edge inspired shooter...oh lawd
