The lights are on
In some bad news for gamers who loved the free-running of Mirror's Edge, Electronic Arts has apparently halted development of the sequel from Battlefield 3 developer DICE.
While Mirror's Edge 2 was never officially unveiled, EA CEO John Riccitiello has talked about the company's philosophy when it comes to the sequel. That talk may amount to nothing; according to a report press2play.tv (as translated by Eurogamer), "The project has been stopped - involved parties at DICE are working on something else now."We know that the "something else" is Battlefield 3, but it's still sad that work on Mirror's Edge 2 isn't moving forward. That's not to say that we'll never see a sequel, but EA's lack of enthusiasm surely isn't a good sign.

Man, i would be all over a sequel. i really like mirror's edge
I never finished Mirror's Edge, but that was only because I borrowed it from my little brother and he traded it in. Been meaning to pick it up, as I loved it.
Wow... as if I didn't hate Battlefield enough... I was really looking forward to this game.
Production of a unique series halted for the production of another military FPS series...... :/
Don't get me wrong, I loved BFBC2. And I'm looking forward to 3. I've played the CODs. But the popularity of FPSs is getting a little out of hand...
Wtf they stop making mirror's edge 2 for battlefield 3 MAN THAT SUCKS HARD!!!!
medal of honor mega ultra suck
EA BETTER START MAKEING MIRROR'S EDGE 2 ..... or elss
Nooo please don't! It was one of the best games that surprised me :P. It was something completely new, i loved it! I want a sequel!
Mirror's Edge was what sold the playstation 3 for me. That game really made me feel like we were in the "next gen", it was so different than any other first-person game out there. And the art design was beautiful. I'm going to play that again tonight...
It be nice to play the sequel! Don't do it E.A.!
Bummer, I was really looking forward to that!
That was a really cool game, hope they can get a sequel out in the future.
Didn't Mirror's Edge see decent sales? What gives?
A good, fun game canceled for a cookie cutter FPS with multiplayer...
