Mirror's Edge 2

At EA’s E3 2013 analyst call, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau confirmed that the newly announce¬†Mirror’s Edge 2 will be an “open-world action adventure game”.

Gibeau continues to discuss EA’s strategy for the upcoming year. EA is going to continue its trend of releasing few games, while attempting to make each game bigger and better, and they plan on releasing 11 HD games and 14 mobile games by the end of the fiscal year. In the long term, however, EA wants to be able to increase their release rate “as ‘Gen 4’ continues to expand and grow”.

EA also confirmed that they have “about five or six new IPs” that they haven’t announced yet. EA will watch how the market develops before discussing them, however.

About Frank Urbanski

A lover of all things video game, Frank foolishly decided to ignore his dream of becoming a writer, and instead got a degree in Biology. It's possible that someone, somewhere might someday need a detailed phylogeny of the Goomba clade, and if that day comes Frank would gladly help. Until then, however, he's happy to flex his writing muscles with the rest of the oprainfall staff.

    This is an interesting twist to the Mirrors Edge series, i loved the first one a lot; But i always had the thought of “it feels to restricted and linear, there is not enough shortcuts to go anywhere”. Being open world will help this series thrive, i hope the controls are a bit easier, than pressing three buttons to perform an easy action.

    I am glad to see EA is finally cleaning up their image lately, they are finally doing what everyone has told them to do over the years. To make fewer games and take their time on the games and release a few games every two years, instead of rushing a majority of games out to the public with bugs and glitches and rush out a release yearly. I can only hope EA learns and one day can set an example for all the other companies to learn from.
