DICE: There's a market for Mirror's Edge 2

Oct 08 // Fraser Brown    @FraserIBrown

Parkour platformer, Mirror's Edge, might have a shot at getting a sequel. DICE producer Patrick Liu believes that people are ready for a second game. The original was a critical success, but unfortunately not a commercial one. However, Liu seems confident that a sequel is viable.

We see that there's a huge fan following, it's almost like a cult! And we know what strengths we had, and what weaknesses we had in that game. If we were to release a new game, we'd know what to improve and how to reach a broader audience. So I definitely think there's a market there.

The stylish dystopia and exciting parkour sequences of the original endeared it to me, but the combat felt tacked on. It was a game with a lot of potential and really deserves another chance. There were reports of a sequel being in the works up until February this year, but EA postponed it indefinitely. EA hasn't indicated it's changed it's mind, despite seeing the franchise as important.
