A Mirror’s Edge 2 help centre page has popped up on the official EA website, providing further evidence that the game could be seen at E3 in June.
The unannounced sequel to the 2008 Mirror’s Edge release was briefly listed on the official EA website help centre hub before the page was removed.
In July 2011, EA Senior Vice President Patrick Soderlund confirmed the developer was working on a sequel, but declined to add any more details.
“I loved Mirror’s Edge,” said Soderlund in an interview. “We have not abandoned the franchise. And we are working on something, but I’m not willing to talk more about that.”
However, in the last couple of weeks, several Mirror’s Edge 2 listings have appeared on retailer websites.
A Mirror’s Edge 2 listing was seen on the German Amazon site with placeholder box art and no release date early last week.
Another listing appeared on the Italian Amazon site too, this time offering an Xbox One Mirror’s Edge 2 title. The Italian Amazon listing has since been removed, as has the German one, but what is most interesting is that the Xbox One edition was the only version available from the site.
Microsoft has already revealed that the Xbox One will be home to 15 exclusive titles, so Mirror’s Edge 2 could be one of these and utilise the new Xbox One Kinect features to enhance the free-running experience.
Last year, it was rumoured that the game would appear on next-generation consoles and would be compatible with Kinect, meaning an Xbox One release would fit with this theory.
Former executive producer of the Battlefield franchise at DICE, Ben Cousins, claimed in November last year that the game was in production at DICE’s Swedish studio.
“It is general knowledge in the Stockhold dev scene that Mirror’s Edge 2 is in production at DICE,” said Cousins in a tweet.
EA will be showcasing a number of titles at the E3 Expo in June, including Battlefield 4, Need for Speed: Rivals and a selection of EA Sports titles. It could also confirm the existence of Mirror’s Edge 2 officially.
