Mirror's Edge 2 is in production at DICE, claims former EA studio boss

Ben Cousins says "it is general knowledge in the Stockholm dev scene"

Mirror's Edge 2 is in the works at Swedish Battlefield studio DICE.


That's according to Ben Cousins, who previously served as general manager of EA Easy, where he oversaw the publisher's free-to-play games including Battlefield Play4Free.

Responding to comments made by EA Games VP Patrick Soderlund, in which the executive said the publisher doesn't want DICE to become "a Battlefield factory", Cousins, who now heads up Ngmoco Sweden, wrote on Twitter:

"It is general knowledge in the Stockholm dev scene that Mirror's Edge 2 is in production at DICE."

Mirror's Edge 2 has appeared on a number of developers' CVs, and while neither EA or DICE have expressly confirmed the game's in production, both have made multiple allusions to the highly-requested sequel.

Last year EA Games Label boss Frank Gibeau said ideas for the game were being worked on and that he was sure we'd see the IP combined with DICE's Frostbite 2 engine. Soderlund himself subsequently confirmed that EA was working on a new Mirror's Edge project, but didn't offer any further details. DICE producer Patrick Liu has also said the studio believes "people are ready to get into [Mirror's Edge] again.
