I say yes, announcement and trailer. 
 
Hopefully we will either hear "Still Alive" the 'theme song' from Mirror's Edge, or maybe even a new song in the trailer.

Maybe.

I think no mention of it. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Tokyo isn't the audience for it and the devs are kind of busy. I'd love to be wrong though.

Next year E3 is my guess.

I wish, I really enjoyed the first game. I"m playing the pc version though, aim isn't a problem for me, I would like to see a second game.

Yes

Very doubtful. Which is sad to me.

Never

@cartvader: The game is a very interesting case study on level design and it would be buried by bigger franchises at E3. I think that if the game does exist (though I don't think it does) GDC is where it gets revealed.

Not going to happen. Mirror's Edge sold even worse in Japan than it did in the west, and DICE has recently announced they're working on another battlefield. 
I still don't believe Mirror's Edge 2 is going to happen (even though, I know, it was announced) or is even really in development yet. And it definitely won't appear at TGS this year. 
 
Sadly. I hold the first game in high regards.

Will not happen.

#15 Posted by Jayross (2365 posts) -

I assumed they would announce it at TGS because the main character is Asian. 
 
I guess I was just being racist :(

You're right... GDC is a better environment for them to reveal it.   
I just hope the game gets made.  Very happy that the DICE creative director could not speak about it when questioned at a recent Battlefield event.  More hopeful than just a no plans to make it.

As much as I hate to say it... EA is done with Mirror's Edge.

I don't think they are. They made a flash game for it and later come out with an iPad game. The franchise still holds value for them, they just aren't sure what to do with it to maximize that value.

They already said they are making Mirrors Edge 2. Why else would it have a page on GB?

It didn't sell well in Europe and the US and I doubt it sold more than 1000 copies in Japan, so why would the show it at TGS?

In the past, EA has also said that they are working on Black 2 and a Road Rash remake.

I have scoured the internet far and wide since ME1 looking for info, and all that points to a sequel was a job posting made a while back and some comments like 'we'd like to see where we could take it' about a year ago. Apart from that, not even a rumour.

Mirror's Edge apparently sold about as well as Dead Space did (1 - 1.5m).  
 
Personally, I don't think EA should be bothering with sequels to either of them.  EA need to be aiming significantly higher than 1-1.5 million sales on their AAA new IP.  Will sequels outsell the original games?  I think it's unlikely.  Given that's all they sold first time around, I think they'd be better off rolling the dice again rather than persisting with franchise/s that are effectively capped at 1.5m sales now.
