Electronic Arts' Games boss Frank Gibeau has promised that he did not murder Mirror's Edge 2, and has stated that the publisher is in the process of figuring out how best to bring the franchise back. 

"We’re just trying to figure out how to bring Mirror’s Edge back and in what way. That’s part of the creative development process," he explained. "I know there are some stories about how EA killed Mirror’s Edge. Well, I’m the guy; I greenlight the games. I did not kill it -- as God is my witness.

"What we said internally is: 'What do we need to do to make [a sequel] a hit?' We need to go from version one to version two so that it sells two to three times as many, it finds a much bigger audience. The first game from a quality standpoint was good, but now it needs to be great."

It's always hard to tell if a publisher is being genuine, or just trying to placate an audience, but we can only hope EA is speaking from the heart. Mirror's Edge was a great idea and I hope it gets a sequel to iron out the problems that held it back. One can only keep the ol' fingers crossed.
