Ben Cousins, the former executive producer of the Battlefield franchise (who has been hiring a couple of DICE employees to work at ngmoco recently) has said that Mirror's Edge 2 is in production.

Chances are fairly good he would actually know this.

His statements come after DICE mentioned they have 300 staff and are working on more than Battlefield in a tweet linking to said article.

So the project has a pulse, that's good. Now we get to worry about them trying to make it appeal to a broader audience. :(

Easier to relaunch IPs near the beginning of a generation.

DICE is also much larger and doing a lot less side work for other studios now.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's 720/PS4/PC (and then proceeds to bomb like Mirror's Edge).

Good. They should've learned what worked and what didn't from the first one. It's entirely possible to fix its problems and make the second one awesome.

So glad to hear this. Hope they don't turn it into a straight up shooter, as those were the worst moments of the original game. In fact, if they make it so that you can avoid firing a single shot that would be great ME1 had some sections were you were pretty much forced to, unless you wanted to play hide and seek with the guards and punch them to death).

Oh, and a sandbox mode would be the best thing ever.

How can you capitalize on something that won't came out till 2 years later?
