Like the Gap and cargo shorts, EA is "trying to figure out how to bring Mirror's Edge back."
EA Games label president Frank Gibeau told CVG
that the Mirror's Edge
franchise is unequivocally not
dead. "I greenlight the games. I did not kill it -- as God is my witness," he swore.
According to Gibeau, the publisher is looking for ways to bring back the franchise in "a way that fans will be excited," while still reaching a larger audience. "We need to go from version one to version two so that it sells two to three times as many, it finds a much bigger audience."
DICE, developer of the first game, is currently working on Battlefield 3
. According to earlier reports
, EA requested that the developer focus exclusively on that game, instead of a Mirror's Edge
sequel. A EA spokesperson later commented that Mirror's Edge
is an "important franchise," but there was "nothing further to announce."
