According to a report by a Swedish gaming website, EA DICE employees have indicated that production on a sequel to 2008’s free-running adventure Mirror’s Edge has been cancelled. EA executives indicated in 2009 that a sequel to the game had entered production, despite disappointing sales of the original. Earlier, it had already been stated that EA DICE was planning on turning the franchise into a trilogy, with a story arch already laid out.
The report by Press2Play states that the plans for Mirror’s Edge 2 were scrapped after EA apparently rejected a prototype for the game. EA refused to comment on the report, stating company policy forbids commenting on speculation.
In 2009, EA CEO John Riccitiello indicated he believed Mirror’s Edge deserved a sequel, despite the commercial performance of that game.
