German arm of retailer lets slip weeks ahead of E3

A retailer listing just weeks ahead of E3 suggests that EA's long-awaited sequel Mirror's Edge 2 could be due for a big reveal at the June event.

The German arm of Amazon has posted a listing for Mirror's Edge 2, which is yet to be formally confirmed by EA.

With placeholder box art and no suggested release date, the page lacks any new information on the game. But it's not uncommon for premature listing on the retailer giant's site to out incoming projects, and the listing's close proximity to gaming's biggest annual industry event suggests that EA may be preparing to finally unveil the game at the E3 expo.

Former EA Easy general manager Ben Cousins seemingly confirmed the development of Mirror's Edge 2 in November 2012, which he stated on Twitter, "It is general knowledge in the Stockholm dev scene that Mirror's Edge 2 is in production at DICE."

Prior to that, the CVs of DICE employees indicated the game's development at the Stockholm studio.

EA senior vice president Patrick Soderlund said back in July 2011 that EA was working on a new Mirror's Edge project, but refused to elaborate further.

It has been five years since the original Mirror's Edge released on Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2008 (followed by a PC version in 2009).
