Mirror’s Edge isn’t gone, yet. During the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco last week, EA Games President Frank Gibeau said the publisher’s still “looking at ideas” for the free-running franchise, but have yet to figure out the “right way to bring it back”.
“We’re looking at ideas for it, absolutely,” Gibeau told IGN when asked about a sequel. “We just haven’t figured out the right way to bring it back yet. It was a franchise that reached an audience, but it didn’t reach a large audience, and from a quality standpoint it was good, not great.”
“Working with DICE, we’re really trying to figure out a way of bringing Faith and the Mirror’s Edge property back, but we just really haven’t crafted the idea yet. We’re looking at it,” Gibeau added.
Mirror’s Edge, released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in November 2008, was received well by reviewers, but failed to meet EA’s sales expectations.
