EA: “We haven’t buried [Mirror’s Edge]”

Mirror’s Edge, EA’s DICE-developed first-person free-runner, isn’t going away despite its lack of activity since its release two years ago. EA executive Patrick Söderlund has told Eurogamer that they’ll definitely be continuing support for the property.

Mirror’s Edge is an IP that’s close to my heart and EA’s as well. It was a bold move from us. I’m proud we made it,” he told the site. “It obviously didn’t reach the commercial success we wanted, even though it wasn’t bad at all.

“I still think as a company we’re going to talk about it when we’re going to talk about it. What I can say is, we haven’t buried it. We’re absolutely continuing to support Mirror’s Edge as an IP. When we’re ready to talk about it, we’ll talk about it.”

Can we have that Mirror’s Edge 2 announcement now, Söderlund?
