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?
