Report Says Mirror's Edge 2 Has Been Canned
by Brad Nicholson on
But has it really?
"EA was shown a prototype, but declined with askance,” says a Press 2 Play TV report, which has been translated by Eurogamer. “The project has been stopped--involved parties at DICE are working on something else now. Patrick himself seems to have Mirror's Edge near his heart, but they are not in the business of charity."
As 1UP notes, that’s a strange reason for a game to get canned at this point. The original Mirror’s Edge flopped back in 2008, which was quite some time ago. Here's how that turned out.
== TEASER ==Note that the report states that the Mirror’s Edge 2 team is now working on something else. If the cancellation of Battlefield 1943 and “Onslaught” PC is an indication of how DICE is pulling talent away from other projects, chances are that this team is now crunching on Battlefield 3.
EA gave comment to 1UP without actually denying it or confirming the accuracy of this rumor, but it did mention, “Mirror’s Edge is an important franchise.” Surely, the sequel to the first game in an ‘important franchise’ won’t be tabled for too long, right?
