EA Cans Mirror's Edge 2 Project
Mirror's Edge was one of our favorite games of the generation; the concept was fantastic and although it wasn't perfect, we thought it represented a solid foundation for the future. The game did sell over 1 million copies and we had heard EA was hard at work on the sequel but evidently, it's all over now. In speaking to Press 2 Play (as translated by Bit-Gamer), EA boss Patrick Soderlund considers those million copies "poor sales." But on top of which, it seems a prototype of the sequel didn't turn out well, so EA has ordered DICE to stop work on the project; the DICE guys are working on "something else now." That has to be more of the reason; the original Dead Space didn't sell many more copies and yet, we saw DS2 last month. It's just too bad ME2 wasn't up to par, because it really had a ton of potential.
If you missed it and were always intrigued by the idea, you might want to pick it up. It's worth a look, at the very least.
