Mirrors Edge Sequel Cancelled

Mirror's Edge 2 has been officially cancelled. EA revealed that development has stopped and the small team working on it has moved onto other projects. The news comes from EA's Patrick Soderlund who spoke with Press2Play.tv, saying that although the series was close to his heart, it suffered from relatively poor sales.

"EA was shown a prototype, but declined with askance,' says Press 2 Play's report (in Swedish). 'The project has been stopped - involved parties at DICE are working on something else now."

EA admitted late last year that Mirror's Edge, alongside Dead Space, had failed to meet internal company expectations. Ironically, EA's Frank Gibeau also noted that they "won't give up on those IPs." Dead Space, however, managed to turn a profit. Its sequel, Dead Space 2, was just released recently to quite the reception, we awarded it a review score of 9/10 and thoroughly recommend it.

Looks like Mirror's Edge 2 won't be as fortunate, with the sequel canned, so have our hopes of returning to the rooftops.
