Rumor: Mirror's Edge 2 in the works

According to Ben Cousins, the former general manager of Electronic Arts’ Easy Studio, DICE is indeed underway on a sequel to 2008 parkour hit Mirror’s Edge.
Cousins, who is now manager of ngmoco Sweden, said on Twitter: “It is general knowledge in the Stockholm dev scene that Mirror’s Edge 2 is in production at DICE.”
Mirror’s Edge received luke warm reviews upon its release four years ago, though nonetheless gained a cult following. A sequel has been rumored for some time now, and while EA has pledged its support for the franchise, nothing has materialised as of yet.
However, going by Cousins’ comments we assume that an official reveal can’t be that far off – if the game is indeed in the works, that is.
This would also tie in with recent comments from EA’s Patrick Soderlund, who said that DICE was in the process of working on non-Battlefield projects. Could one of these be Mirror’s Edge 2?
We’ll keep you posted.

Yeah, this has been talked about for quite some time, but it's very nice to hear confirmation again from the awesome devs at DICE that they are still in fact making it, kewl!

Yes! I cant explain how good this is and how good it is going to be when it gets revealed, safe to say there will be a real need for some new underwear.
