Ben Cousins, a former Executive Producer of DICE and employee of EA (now general manager of ngmoco in Sweden) has come forward with the news that Mirror’s Edge 2 is indeed in development. The original Mirror’s Edge was released in 2008 to mixed reviews but a mostly positive fan reception. Players took on the role of a parkouring messenger in the not-so-distant future where everything is controlled by the government.
“It is general knowledge in the Stockholm dev scene that Mirror’s Edge 2 is in production at DICE” – Ben Cousins Tweets
DICE had been hinting at such an announcement in a recent interview with Official Xbox Magazine when asked about the risks of developing something other than a guaranteed success like Battlefield, namely Mirror’s Edge. Good news for free-running fans then, if the Assassin’s Creed franchise isn’t giving you the adrenaline of leaping off skyscrapers in first-person, you’ll know just where to look in the near future.
