DICE says there is 'definitely a market' for Mirror's Edge 2

A potential follow-up to Mirror’s Edge could “reach a broader audience,” series developer DICE has said, and what’s more the firm believes there is definitely “a market” for a sequel.

Speaking during a Battlefield 3 event in London, DICE producer Patrick Liu told Spong he feels punters are ready to embrace a new Mirror’s Edge title, and acknowledged the parkour-fuelled actioner still boasts a significant fan following.

“I think it’s something that people are ready to get into again,” commented Liu. “We see that there’s a huge fan following, it’s almost like a cult! And we know what strengths we had, and what weaknesses we had in that game. If we were to release a new game, we’d know what to improve and how to reach a broader audience. So I definitely think there’s a market there.”

Of course, this isn’t the first time chatter on Mirror’s Edge 2 has popped up. Earlier this year, EA Games Label big cheese Frank Gibeau suggested the sequel may utilize the Frostbite 2 engine, while EA Games Vice President Patrick Soderlund said the firm was beavering away on something related to the franchise.

Mirror’s Edge originally released on PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 back in 2008, attracting a luke warm reception from critics. Nonetheless, fans have been clamouring for a follow-up for some time now, though nothing has been officially confirmed as of yet.
