    DICE lighting artist lists Mirror's Edge 2 on portfolio.

    mirrorsedge1201.jpg

    Oscar Carlén, a lighting artist at EA's DICE studio, lists two "2009-present" projects in his portfolio: Battlefield 3 and Mirror's Edge 2. Not only do those games possibly exist, you'll be able to see what's going on in them.

    Battlefield 3 was first mentioned in June at a conference by EA COO John Pleasants. At that time, Pleasants also revealed a Criterion-developed Need for Speed game, which was announced again during EA's latest financial conference call -- so Battlefield 3 is somewhat of an expected property, lending credence to the existence of Mirror's Edge 2 by association. The last we heard about a follow-up to Mirror's Edge was that a "small team" was working on something back in June. Carlén could be part of that small team.
    It's possible, given EA's recent layoffs and turn toward more surefire franchises, that Mirror's Edge 2 did exist but no longer does. We're checking with EA to verify the information found on this portfolio and to determine the current state of the franchise.

    Mirror’s Edge 2 - DICE refuses to comment.

    Mirrors-Edge.jpg

    DICE has refused to comment on the ongoing development of Mirror’s Edge 2. Producer on Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Karl-Magnus Todesson said:

    This completely goes against what was said last June, when DICE boss Patrick Söderland said a small team was working on a sequel for the game. EA CEO John Riccitello said last month that it deserves a second game. It seems it’s well into production, according to a CV from a Lighting Artist. The original released back in November 2008 for PS3 and 360, while the PC version released in early January last year.

    Mirror's Edge 2 - On Hold?

    DICE says sequel to adventurous action title was in development but poor sales scuppered plans. Hopes of a sequel to 2008 first person platform outing Mirror's Edge appear to have diminished with word from EA-owned developer DICE that the project has been put on hold. In an interview translated from Swedish games site Vicachu, DICE boss Patrick Soderlund said:

    Furthermore, development on a sequel had actually started, with a prototype having been shown off behind closed doors. The bad news though is that all work on the game has stalled, with those who were working on the title having shifted their attentions to other, unspecified projects. Soderlund added:

    Mirror’s Edge 2 - Still an important franchise.

    EA has responded to reports that it's halted work on an in-development sequel to Mirror's Edge, telling press the series is an important franchise. According to a translated chat put online yesterday, Mirror's Edge 2 has now stalled, with all parties involved moved over to another project. An EA spokesperson told 1UP this morning:

    Notice how it didn't actually debunk reports the sequel's been put on hold, but then again an important franchise wouldn't get outright canned, would it? EA's been far from quiet on the chances of Mirror's Edge returning so far, and DICE developer CVs have also pointed to a sequel. EA boss John Riccitiello talked up number two in late 2009:

    Mirror's Edge 2 - Must grow franchise audience.

    EA has told CVG that not only is DICE's Mirror's Edge franchise very much still alive, but that it is figuring out a way to bring it back. However, the publisher will not green light a new project in the series until it can be confident that any sequel will comfortably outsell the first game. Reports emerging last month suggested that the publisher had put the brakes on any plans for a second game in the series. However, when asked if EA had given up on expanding franchise, the firm's Games label chief Frank Gibeau told CVG:

    Last year, EA has brought Mirror's Edge to iPad as part of its initial range for the Apple device.

    Mirror’s Edge 2 - To be powered by Frostbite 2?

    In a Game Trailers interview at E3, president of EA Games, Frank Gibeau all but confirmed that EA is planning to make Mirror’s Edge 2, adding that it will likely be powered by Battlefield 3′s Frostbite 2 engine. Gibeau told Game Trailers:

    Gibeau has spoken publicly before about the possibilities of a Mirror’s Edge sequel. He’s previously said that a lack of multiplayer and problems with pace and difficulty held the first game back. On the matter of lessons learned from the first game, he had this to say:

    Talk of Mirror’s Edge 2 will be music to the ears of fans of the first game. Mirror’s Edge’s startling cityscapes are still some of the most memorable locations in gaming. The idea of seeing them reincarnated in the Frostbite 2 engine lights up a huge neon “YES” sign deep in my soul.

    Mirror's Edge 2 - EA confirms work on new Mirror's Edge project.

    EA senior vice president Patrick Soderlund has confirmed the company's at work on a new Mirror's Edge project, although he wouldn't elaborate one bit, he told GameStar in a video interview:

    The news follows last month's admission by EA Games Label boss Frank Gibeau that ideas for a sequel to the DICE game are being worked on. At the time, he said he's sure we'll see the IP combined with the Battlefield developer's new Frostbite 2 engine.

    In March, Gibeau told CVG that not only is DICE's Mirror's Edge franchise very much still alive - but that EA is figuring out a way to bring it back.

    Mirror's Edge 2 - Uses Battlefield 3 engine: OPM strengthens rumour.

    Although EA has said a couple of times that the Mirror's Edge franchise will return one day, things look to becoming ever more solid as Official PlayStation Magazine tips the sequel to return on Frostbite 2 with reassuring certainty. Back in June EA Games boss Frank Gibeau felt comfortable enough to avoid dismissing the notion of Mirror's Edge 2 on DICE's Frostbite 2 engine saying:

    OPM is now reporting on insider whispers which add more credence to the idea of Faith hop, skip and jumping onto Battlefield 3's stunning engine, the mag said:

    What exactly that will look like is still uncertain (Faith may not even feature). EA itself has admitted that it needed time to work out the best way to approach a Mirror's Edge sequel, although it sounds as though that work is already under-way.

    Mirror’s Edge 2 - Spider-Man Trailer Simulated With Mirror's Edge.

    The newest Amazing Spider-Man trailer got some criticism for looking a little bit like a certain first person game from 2008. But how close does Spider-Man come to walking in Faith’s shoes? A few fans put together a video to find out. On a side note, if even Hollywood is copying Mirror’s Edge, maybe it’s time to get serious about that sequel. How about it EA?

    Mirror’s Edge 2 - Dream is definitely still there.

    Faith no more? Don’t bank on it. Repeated suggestions that Mirror’s Edge will return have been compounded today by DICE creative boss Lars Gustavsson refusing to count out more from the first-person fan-favourite. Gustavsson said, speaking to VG247 at DICE’s Stockholm offices:

    Talk of sequel is now gathering pace. OPM rumoured the game was being developed in July, saying the Frostbite 2 engine being used for Battlefield 3 will pave a way for its return. Earlier in the month, EA Games Europe VP Patrick Soderlund said:

    Fellow EA exec Frank Gibeau said in June that EA is now actively looking at how to bring it back in the right way. Soderlund originally confirmed a second Mirror’s Edge title in June 2009, saying a small team was working on the game.

    However, reports emerged in February this year that the project had stalled. Mirror’s Edge, a near-future adventure based on the exploits of protagonist Faith, released in 2008. The game drew attention thanks to its distinctive art style and free-running first-person mechanics, which centred on moving through environments as opposed to simply shooting.

    Mirror’s Edge 2 - We definitely haven't killed Mirror's Edge.

    DICE won't say much about the prospect of Mirror's Edge sequels, particularly not with Battlefield 3 steaming towards the finish line, but the studio's affection for its Marmite first-person parkour adventure is clear. Visiting DICE's Stockholm offices to discuss the serious business of shooting men with guns, Matt couldn't help noticing all the Faith art plastered across the furniture. Battlefield producer Patrick Bach breathlessly answered:

    A lesser interviewer might have been deterred by such studied reticence and floating punctuation marks, but Matt chose this moment to Take It Up A Level. Ah, he said, in the braying baritone he possesses when he's speaking to me inside my head. But is there anything we can deduce from the design of your current project? Completely blind-sided - nay, foxed - by the dashing young gentleman's cunning, Bach had no choice but to drop further hints, he said:

    So there you have it. Battlefield 3 is Mirror's Edge 2, and Faith is probably going to appear as a downloadable character. No, that isn't what he actually said, because what he actually said boils down to a big fat Maybe and there's no way I'm founding a whole news story on that.

    Mirror’s Edge 2 - People Are Ready For It.

    Mirror's Edge developer DICE reckons the marketplace is ready for a sequel to its acclaimed-but-underperforming free-running FPS. When quizzed by Spong on whether a sequel would find an audience, DICE producer Patrick Liu replied:

    Of course, enthusiasm is all well and good, but publisher EA has offered no indication that we're any closer to actually seeing that oft-discussed sequel on shelves. Announced EA exec Frank Gibeau earlier this year:

    Mirror’s Edge 2 - DICE's future plans go beyond the Battlefield franchise.

    It's been awhile since the last non-Battlefield game from DICE. Sure, the Swedish dev studio assisted with Medal of Honor's 2010 reboot (multiplayer) and provided some tech backup for Need for Speed: The Run (DICE's Frostbite 2.0 game engine powered the title), but otherwise it hasn't made a separate, original property of its own since 2008's critically acclaimed Mirror's Edge. That may be about to change.

    DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson told us in an interview last week during GDC 2012, referring to the future of his studio. He punctuated his sentence with a quick:

    Unfortunately, but it's good to hear that DICE is moving back to development outside of the Battlefield franchise. It'd be nicer to hear that the studio was steadfast in making a sequel to Mirror's Edge, of course, but we'll take what we can for now.

    Mirror’s Edge 2 - Pratchett love the chance to write under the right circumstances.

    Rhianna Pratchett has said should Mirror’s Edge 2 ever come to pass, it’s unlikely she’ll write the narrative for the game. Speaking in a wide ranging interview with ActionRip, Pratchett said under the right circumstances she’d love the chance to try her hand at the sequel, but due to having blotted her copy-book with DICE during the first outing, she has doubts regarding her potential involvement. She said:

    When asked, Pratchett also touched upon the recent Mass Effect 3 ending controversy, stating that while she couldn’t fully comment as she hasn’t played the game yet, BioWare’s excuse for the ending was a bit poor, she offered:

    Pratchett is currently working on a screenplay adaption of Janet Paisley’s novel Warrior Daughter and a TV series, as well as three large games and one smaller one she is unable to talk about just yet, but hopefully all will become clear later in the year.

    Mirror’s Edge 2 - Is on the list.

    As if the firm hasn’t said this enough already, a sequel to Mirror’s Edge is on the list of things to do at EA, according to labels president Frank Gibeau. The reason it’s taking so long to get to market, let alone me announced, has to do more with how and when the series will be brought back. Gibeau said in the latest issue of GameInformer:

    Mirror's Edge 2- How Mirror's Edge gave legs (and more) to Battlefield 3.

    The dextrous legs of Mirror's Edge heroine Faith helped to shape the movement of characters in Battlefield 3, EA DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson said in a speech today during GDC Europe. No, you don't spend too much time parkouring around the war torn arenas of Battlefield 3, but various animations – Faith vaulting over obstacles, for instance – directly shaped the way BF3's soldiers interacted with their environment. Troedsson told us in a followup:

    When we pressed for more news on Mirror's Edge within DICE and the potential for a sequel, Troedsson was predictably coy. He said:

    And hey, it if it helps DICE's core franchise, it could be worthwhile even without the level of financial support Battlefield sees from fans. At least that's what we're hoping.

    Mirror’s Edge 2 - And Bad Company's IP are too good to kill.

    Bad Company 3 and Mirror’s Edge 2 are still on the table at EA, according to DICE executive producer Patrick Bach. Speaking with IGN, Bach reiterated what various EA executive have been saying regarding both IPs for ages now, but with Mirror’s Edge especially, Bach said it was an IP DICE loves and of course we haven’t killed it, because it’s too good to kill. Love is a word Bach used to describe the firm’s – and his – feelings for the Bad Company IP as well, as both are very dear to me because I worked on both titles. He said:

    Until either title is announced, Bach said DICE has other projects in store for fans other than Battlefield 4, and what these are, well, the public will just have to wait and see.
