Yeah, it's true; we've heard this before. EA has often said Mirror's Edge isn't dead. …that rhymes, doesn't it?
But it's great to hear the developer say it. When visiting DICE's HQ in Stockholm, OXM UK received a few encouraging statements from Battlefield 3 producer Patrick Bach. After noticing all the Faith art decorating the studio, the journalist had to ask the obvious question. To which Bach replied:
The only thing we can talk about and be open about is that we have not killed the franchise, and you can see that within these walls. We're still talking about it, and there's no closure on it.
The only thing that we have decided is that whatever we're doing in this office right now, when it comes to that we're not talking about it. The only thing I can say officially is that we definitely haven't killed the franchise. As you noticed, we still love it – we just need to find out how…"
We really want that sequel and we're hoping that after Battlefield 3 is out the door, EA will give DICE the green light. It's just one of those refreshing games that really captivated us, primarily because we understood the innate potential of the concept. Besides, the game itself was great fun; if you haven't played it, we strongly suggest giving it a try.
