The lights are on
Apparently Mirror's Edge is sort of like that ex who you just can't stop hooking up with for publisher Electronic Arts. Just last month CEO John Riccitiello stated that a planned sequel had been scrapped, but now EA is saying they aren't totally done with this flawed franchise.
Speaking to CVG, EA games label president Frank Gibeau promised that the publisher has not given up on the franchise but is "just trying to figure out how to bring Mirror's Edge back and in what way." Expanding on this statement, he explained the process EA is working on for the future of Mirror's Edge:
"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."We're actively working on ideas in the Mirror's Edge universe, we just haven't locked yet on a way to bring it back and a way that fans will be excited, but at the same time we can get it to a bigger audience."
So for all those despairing, you can grasp onto hope for a new Mirror's Edge game once again. What would you like to see EA do in a sequel to ensure that this entry is more successful?
My hope for this game will not die! I'm sure that if they were to make another addition, it would be a hit.
I would like to see more of that great city and the story from the eyes of a different runner perhaps a customized one, that would be great. the cutscenes kinda made the game a joke for me I loved the game but cutscenes made from in game graphics would be awesome.
Anything with that sort of gameplay. I know it was flawed, but I adored the first. Just more of the same with LESS BLOOM would be nice. My monitor is *** and it makes bloom look like blurry white ***.
I would love to see a sequel. The first one had it's problems, but I had a ton of fun with it. I think if they took their time with it they could make an amazing game.
more running and less combat, or make combat more fun. Make stealth play more interesting. Maybe some more varied environments, and a bit longer story. or a multiplayer mode with racing and stuff!!! i personally loved this game and pray that it gets a sequel and a deserved audience.
multiplayer. . .
I really really want a sequel....very badly. I'm not sure how to do it...but I really want one.
I just have one thought. MAKE THE STORY LONGER AND LESS CONVOLUTED.
If she was my ex, I'd keep going back too!
I never played the first one, but alot of my friends have told me it's one of the best platformers in the recent years!
First, get good authors, the first story was horrible. Second, Improve gunplay while still minimizing it more. Third, create more lengthy combos, I also would like bigger and more diverging paths in levels.
Forgot the end quote at the end of the third paragraph.
Loved the feel of the first one i just hope the visuals arent as bland you know? It's been awhile, cant wait to play numbah 2!!
