E3 2011: New Mirror's Edge To Utilize Frostbite 2?
When we heard a Mirror's Edge sequel probably wouldn't happen, we were disappointed.
But not so fast; there's reason for hope. EA Games president Frank Gibeau told GameTrailers that they "haven't killed Mirror's Edge" and they do plan to pursue a follow-up effort.
"We're actively looking at how to bring it back in the right way. We love that franchise. The DICE guys really created something I think special the first time around. You've got to have a big idea to be able to do the next one and that's what we're working on."
Better yet, let's not forget who made the first game: DICE. And that team has a bad-ass new engine in Frostbite 2, which is powering the great-looking Battlefield 3. So when Gibeau was asked if Mirror's Edge 2 would utilize that same advanced engine, his reply was- "you'll see that combination, I'm sure."
Sweeeet. The first game was a little flawed but controlled beautifully and showed a ton of promise. And we can't wait to learn more about a sequel!
