EA: Mirror's Edge deserves a second chance


Mirror's Edge looks all set for a sequel, despite the less-than-stellar performance of the first game. After all, Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello wants the game to get another chance, and he's the man with the power to let it happen. He also said that innovative gaming and new IP is like a "religion" to him.

"It's religion for me; I believe quality and innovation is what works," says the EA chief. "I believe there are publishers out there that are milking franchises at their peril. I do think you can sort of stop innovating and do well while you coast for a couple of editions before a product starts to fall apart or a sector starts to fall apart."

On Mirror's Edge, John has this to say: "There are some things we learned about that game. It was, I think, a massively innovative product. To be honest with you, I think it's a game that deserves to come back."

Riccitiello also says that DICE is working on the design of a future game. Do you think Mirror's Edge deserves to try and capture our imaginations again, or was one attempt at FPS parkour all you could handle?
