There are two names a great many gamers wouldn't mind seeing again: Mirror's Edge and Bad Company .
The good news is that new installments in both franchises have been spotted on some online resumes and CVs, as reported by GamerZines .
One example is that of a former EA software engineer, who says he worked on Mirror's Edge 2 between July and August 2009, generating "the wandering of crowd systems within the Unreal 3 Engine." Another ex-EA staffer says he created "new gadget and interactive features" for the sequel, along with leaderboards and a mini-game within the campaign's story. It may not be coincidental that in June 2009, EA Games Europe vice president Patrick Soderlund told everyone that we'll "see another Mirror's Edge for sure."
As for Bad Company 3 , that title showed up on the resume of someone who "provided video game prototype, design, and demo feedback on various AAA titles including Battlefield: Bad Company 3 , Dead Space 2 , Devil May Cry 5 , and other unannounced titles." This happened between 2009 and 2011 and with Dead Space 2 on store shelves and the DMC reboot in the works at Ninja Theory, it all sounds plausible.
For the record, Bad Company 2 launched in March 2010 to widespread critical acclaim, and then EA and DICE turned their attention to Battlefield 3 . With that out late last year, wouldn't it make sense that they go back to Bad Company …? Guess we'll have to wait for the official word, but we really would love that Mirror's Edge sequel.
