Next-Gen Hardware Will "Take Mirror's Edge To The Next Level"

Posted on Friday, June 28 @ 06:22:56 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Electronic Arts announced at E3 that DICE is currently working on a sequel to Mirror's Edge. EA Labels president Frank Gibeau has since taken the time to speak with IGN and detail what fans can expect from this parkour-centric followup.

I think the time is right now because we’ve got a creative idea. We have a great story planned. With all the gen 4 technology, we can re-create that magic of running across rooftops and experiencing a city from a different point of view through the character of Faith.

Performance, animation, all those technologies that are now in gen 4, that extra computing power is going to be able to take Mirror’s Edge to the next level. We’ve always been thinking about it, but a bunch of things came together – the right story, the right leadership team, and the right capabilities from this new hardware – that got us to commit and go for it.

The original game wasn't a breakout success at retail, but EA is confident that this new entry will broaden the audience. “Our goal in any product is to try and grow the audience," Gibeau added. "We’re definitely taking into account the opportunity to reach a bigger group of people. We think we’ve got the right story and accessibility that can do that. It’s a title that did multiple millions of units, so it has a fairly widespread audience. It’s not an art film. But we do see an opportunity to grow it.”
