In a recent interview with GamePro’s German cousin concerning Battlefield 3 being unmoddable, there was a little bit of info that nearly slipped through the net that Patrick Soderlund, EA’s Senior Vice President, mentioned the company is working on something to do with the franchise.
Fancy yourself some Mirrors Edge? Wish there was a sequel? Well, as of right now it doesn’t seem to be in EA’s agenda. But why exactly?
While Mirrors Edge was somewhat successful, it didn’t really make a hit like Dead Space did. There were quite a few issues in terms of design for Mirrors Edge and it wasn’t as strong as Dead Space in the market. EA said they’re still trying to “figure out how to bring Mirror’s Edge back.”
EA doesn’t want to simply toss it out there and appeal only to the previous audience. Instead, they want to be able to expand the franchise, so they are treading cautiously for now.
“We need to go from version one to version two so that it sells two to three times as many, it finds a much bigger audience.”
