The developer of Battlefield will continue work on its free-running franchise
Former EA producer Ben Cousins has practically confirmed that Mirror’s Edge 2 is in development at Swedish studio DICE, saying that it’s “general knowledge in the Stockholm development scene” that a new Mirror’s Edge is coming.DICE may have gotten famous for its top-notch Battlefield first-person shooters but it doesn’t want to transform into a factory that only makes Battlefield games, at least according to its owner, Electronic Arts.
Now, former EA producer Ben Cousins has revealed on his Twitter that Mirror’s Edge 2 is all but confirmed.
“It is general knowledge in the Stockholm dev scene that Mirror’s Edge 2 is in production at DICE,” he said.
Rumors about Mirror’s Edge 2 have been floating around the web for quite some time but, given DICE’s preoccupation with Battlefield 3 and with the upcoming Battlefield 4, not to mention its work on the Frostbite 2 engine, it appeared as if the franchise was put on the back burner.
