OPM: Frostbite 2 Paves The Way For Mirror's Edge Return
Recently, EA said they had no wish to abandon Mirror's Edge, a sentiment that gave fans hope for a sequel.
Well, maybe EA was actually hinting at a current or near-future project. First, EA boss Frank Gibeau was asked if we'd ever see DICE's new Frostbite 2 engine in Mirror's Edge 2, and his response was- "You'll see that combination, I'm sure." And now, according to "insider whispers" in the latest OPM, we hear something similar:
"The Frostbite 2 engine will pave the way for Mirror's Edge to make a free-running return."
Maybe we'll get the official unveiling before the year is out, although we imagine EA will be focusing on Battlefield 3 for the holiday rush. Mirror's Edge was a great game with a boatload of potential, and it managed to sell over 1 million copies. But that doesn't necessarily qualify as a rip-roaring success for EA, so maybe that's why they were slow to crank out a sequel.
But whatever the reason, we just hope a sequel is in the works.
