It’s at the top of many gamers’ want list, and now Mirror’s Edge 2 looks a lot closer to fruition than ever before.
That’s according to ngmoco’s Ben Cousins, who formerly served as boss of free-to-play at EA, who took to Twitter to state: It is general knowledge in the Stockholm dev scene that Mirror’s Edge 2 is in production at DICE.”
The reveal comes after EA Games vice-president Patrick Soderlund told OXM that the company doesn’t want developer DICE to become a Battlefield-only studio.
The DICE guys are roughly 300 people in the Stockholm studio; not all of them are working on Battlefield things, and that’s intentional, because we don’t want to become a Battlefield factory,” he explained.
"The minute we start saying ‘you’re going to make a Battlefield game for the rest of your life’ they’re going to go some place else. So for them to make great Battlefield games there need to be other things for them to do as well. That’s why we have people who move around quite a bit. And then obviously we have a boatload of people that just want to make Battlefield because they love it.”
