Turns out what we heard before wasn’t entirely true. Mirror’s Edge is still alive!
EA’s Frank Gibeau said in an interview with CVG:
“Not at all. We’re just trying to figure out how to bring Mirror’s Edge back and in what way. That’s part of the creative development process. I know there are some stories about how EA killed Mirror’s Edge. Well, I’m the guy; I greenlight the games. I did not kill it – as God is my witness.
What we said internally is: ‘What do we need to do to make [a sequel] a hit?’ We need to go from version one to version two so that it sells two to three times as many, it finds a much bigger audience. The first game from a quality standpoint was good, but now it needs to be great.
We’re actively working on ideas in the Mirror’s Edge universe, we just haven’t locked yet on a way to bring it back and a way that fans will be excited, but at the same time we can get it to a bigger audience.”
Phew. I’m so glad. Mirror’s Edge is “Still Alive”!
