    Mirror's Edge 2 is in production at Battlefield developer DICE, and the game's existence is regarded as general knowledge in the Stockholm dev scene, former EA free-to-play boss Ben Cousins has revealed on Twitter.

    "It is general knowledge in the Stockholm dev scene that Mirror's Edge 2 is in production at DICE," he Tweeted.

    The revelation follows an OXM interview with EA Games VP Patrick Soderlund in which he states DICE doesn't want to be known only as the Battlefield studio.

    "The DICE guys are roughly 300 people in the Stockholm studio; not all of them are working on Battlefield things, and that's intentional, because we don't want to become a Battlefield factory," he said.

    "The minute we start saying 'you're going to make a Battlefield game for the rest of your life' they're going to go some place else. So for them to make great Battlefield games there need to be other things for them to do as well. That's why we have people who move around quite a bit. And then obviously we have a boatload of people that just want to make Battlefield because they love it."

    I thought Mirror's Edge was flawed but it was oozing with potential.

    EA's Söderlund discusses Star Wars: Battlefront, Mirror's Edge reboot

    EA Games Label vice president Patrick Söderlund revealed new details and insight regarding DICE's upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront and Mirror's Edge games in a recent interview with CVG.

    Describing DICE and Star Wars: Battlefront as "a match made in heaven," Söderlund explains that the next Battlefront game was approved at DICE's insistence. "It was almost not happening," Söderlund recalls. "It was just something as boring as resources and availability. The DICE guys Karl Magnus Troedsson and Patrick Bach were talking and I told them we were in dialogues with Disney over this deal and they just looked at me and said, 'Why haven't you spoken to us? What are you doing? We want to make Battlefront.'"

    "I didn't anticipate them wanting to work on a license – they've always been new IP or their own IP," Söderlund continued. "But they were just like, 'we would kill to make this game' and the whole studio started talking about it like, 'please give us this game'. That's when I called Frank [Gibeau, EA Labels boss] and I realised we had something here. [...] They begged to do it, the opportunity was there and that's exactly why you'll see a game that will be what it needs to be." Continue Reading

    I want to be able to like the sequel/prequel/reboot or whatever, but the EA name is just mud. I hope for no always-online requirement, no crafting system and no microtransactions, and no shootbang multiplayer.

    Ea doesn't require always online in any game besides Sim City and a game has never been brought down in quality because of microtransactions, they're there but they are always completely optional.

    Mirror's Edge co-story designer Rhianna Pratchett not working on reboot [update]

    EA hasn't approached Mirror's Edge co-story designer and writer Rhianna Pratchett about returning to DICE's upcoming reboot, the author revealed this week. Pratchett, who served as lead writer on the recent Tomb Raider and as co-story designer and writer on Heavenly Sword, went on to say the Mirror's Edge story "didn't review that great," and that she considered herself a "casualty of the development process."

    Pratchett has spoken about her disappointment with the first game's story before. Talking to ActionTrip in 2012, she said, " DICE was a great company to work with, but Mirror's Edge was a challenging project and an important learning experience for me. Unfortunately, because of the timing when I was brought in and a large amount of the script being cut (due to the late decision to remove level dialogue) the narrative wasn't what I would've liked it to be. Thankfully, I got the chance to remedy this a little bit in the Mirror's Edge comic series with DC. The story in those was much more along the lines of what I would've liked to have developed for the game."

    Pratchett added, "I've been quite candid about what happened with Mirror's Edge, because I know some players were disappointed with the narrative in the game. The upshot of that is that I've probably blotted my copy-book with DICE. I'd love the chance to do it again under the right circumstances, and I have plenty of ideas, but I doubt that's going to happen."

    After years of speculation, EA finally unveiled the Mirror's Edge reboot at last year's E3 conference, and the game is currently in development for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. It'll feature a new origins story for lead character Faith, although the publisher is keeping that under wraps for now.

    As for Pratchett, she's being kept busy with upcoming TV and film adaptations of her father Terry's work, including a movie of The Wee Free Men and a BBC series of The Watch. And how about the Tomb Raider sequel, hmmmmm? "Can't say, sorry." is the answer to that.

    Update: Following today's news, we got in touch with Rhianna Pratchett to ask whether or not she'd be prepared to work on the new Mirror's Edge game if asked, and what she'd want to do differently second time around.

    "A lot of it would depend on the time frame involved, the attitude of the team and what they were looking to do with the characters and world this time around," she told us, while noting she'd outlined some of what she'd do with a prequel with the comic series she wrote for the first game.

    Check out what Pratchett had to say in full after the break:

    I didn't know that. I must admit, sometimes when I was playing it the story didn't quite work so well together and I thought it was odd. Rihanna is very talented so I just assumed maybe I was focusing too much on that.

    That often happens with movie tie ins in particular. They make the characters and the levels and then at the last second they bring in someone famous to tie it all together really quickly and it doesn't quite work as well as if the writer is there from the start.

    I hope she comes back

    She did good in Tomb Raider but Mirrors Edge was just bad. No excuse changes that

    Nice art.

    It's too bad the EA of 2015 isn't even the EA of 2007-2008, though, when the original game was put out there unmolested. The iOS game was pretty cool, too.

    So I'm still on guard.
