Mirror’s Edge 2 development stopped by EA

Posted By | On 14th, Feb. 2011 Under News


Mirror’s Edge 2’s development has been “stopped” by EA.

According to a Eurogamer Sweden translation of a Press 2 Play TV report, the small team at DICE, who were working on the sequel of 2009, parkour-inspired FPS title, showed a prototype to EA and it was “rejected”.

The project hence got stopped and the dev team comprising of DICE members has moved on to another project. Apparently, ther’re now helping the core DICE team developing Battlefield 3 as EA wants to ensure that it can ship out the best possible game in order to compete with the Call of Duties.

It’s unlikely that a sequel will get the green light from EA anytime soon and the ill-fated First Person Shooter, which inspite of receiving broad critical acclaim, failed to do well commercially won’t get a second chance of redeeming itself.

    The first game was really good. I was looking forward to a sequel… Maybe EA will allow it after Battlefield 3 comes out.

  • John Riccitiello has to do what is best for EA to become the #1 publisher in the world.

    Thats a bit of a shame cus the first was a great concept despite its flaws and visually it was stunning.

      yea it was visually stunning the concept and the art was pretty cool in the demo and i watched some videos on it i can say it was cool but maybe they will make another one but as of EA has a lot on its plate now
