Mirror's Edge 2: 'People are ready,' says DICE

Free-running FPS will "reach a broader audience" second time around, says producer

DICE thinks that now would be a good time to reveal Mirror's Edge 2, at least in terms of having a receptive audience.


Speaking to Spong, studio producer Patrick Liu said the audience is there and DICE is aware of what it needs to do to make sure sales match critical reception the second time around.

"I think it's something that people are ready to get into again," Liu told Spong when asked if he thought Mirror's Edge 2 would do well.

"We see that there's a huge fan following, it's almost like a cult! And we know what strengths we had, and what weaknesses we had in that game. If we were to release a new game, we'd know what to improve and how to reach a broader audience. So I definitely think there's a market there."

The ambition to grow the Mirror's Edge audience has obviously been an objective for DICE right from the start.

In June, EA Games Label boss Frank Gibeau said ideas for Mirror's Edge 2 were being worked on and he's sure we'll see the IP combined with DICE's new Frostbite 2 engine.
