EA confirms 'small team' working on Mirror's Edge 2

Speaking to VideoGamer at E3, Patrick Soderlund, Senior Vice President of EA Games Europe confirmed that a 'small team' at DICE is currently working on Mirror's Edge 2. Soderlund's comments are the first confirmation that a sequel to the parkour-inspired action adventure game is in development.

When asked about the future of the intellectual property, Soderlund responded by saying: "Mirror's Edge was a risky move. It was a bold move, a very innovative and inspiring move. The game wasn't perfect by any means. We would have liked the game to sell better even though the game has sold better than most people think."

He added: "You will see another Mirror's Edge for sure. It's just a matter of when that time is and what we do with it. We have a small team on it and I'm excited about what we do."

During a December 2008 conference call, CEO of Electronic Arts John Riccitiello assured fans that the developer still has faith in the new franchise. "Mirror's Edge is one that was very strongly reviewed, that one's going to go forward. We're probably going to look into some issues around the design to make sure strong IP is married with strong business."

Additional details or a possible release date were not forthcoming.
