‘Small team’ developing Mirror’s Edge 2, says EA

Electronic Arts has confirmed that a ‘small team’ has been assigned to carry out development of parkour-inspired adventure sequel, Mirror’s Edge 2.

Speaking with VideoGamer.com during the E3 convention in Los Angeles last week, EA Games Europe senior vice president Patrick Soderlund confirmed that a sequel to the stylish first person outing is in the works, though didn’t shy away from admitting the original game had its faults.

“Mirror’s Edge was a risky move. It was a bold move, a very innovative and inspiring move. The game wasn’t perfect by any means. We would have liked the game to sell better even though the game has sold better than most people think,” said Soderlund.

“You will see another Mirror’s Edge for sure. It’s just a matter of when that time is and what we do with it. We have a small team on it and I’m excited about what we do.”

Unfortunately that’s about all Soderlund was able to divulge on the sequel, though PSU will be sure to bring you any further details on the game as they become available to us. Stay tuned.
