Rumor: Mirror’s Edge 2 to appear at E3 2012!

May 16, 2012

News

Fans of DICE’s Mirror’s Edge have been enticed by details of a sequel in the making. Up until now, it’s seemed like a back-burner idea, but in recent months there have been some more promising developments. With E3 right around the corner, rumors are flying about many upcoming titles. Recently, a former EA employee’s resumé was discovered on LinkedIn, which makes reference to work on Mirror’s Edge 2, specifically crowd behavior using the Unreal 3 engine.

Rumors began to fly in July of 2011 of a Mirror’s Edge sequel that would make use of the Frostbite 2 engine, the same one that Battlefield 3 was built on. There’s no question that the city’s stark whites and clean colors would look phenominal using Frostbite 2, but it might give DICE liberty to adventure out into more natural-looking environments as well, giving the Mirror’s Edge universe a more organic side. The rumors of a Mirror’s Edge sequel really started to solidify in October of 2011, when DICE’s Patrick Liu commented that the Mirror’s Edge franchise is “something that people are ready to get into again.” Nearly three quarters of a year later, it seems like a good time for DICE to unveil Mirror’s Edge 2 at E3 the week of June 4. Hopefully we’ll get to see some exciting material to whet our appetites!
