HistoryEdit

In October 2008, the game's senior producer, Owen O'Brien, suggested that EA plans to turn the game into a trilogy by saying, "the story we're telling at the moment is kind of a trilogy, a three-story arc."

The production of a sequel to Mirror's Edge was confirmed by EA Games Europe senior vice president Patrick Söderlund in a June 2009 interview with Videogamer.com.[3]

In February 2011, it was reported that development on Mirror's Edge 2 had been "stopped" after EA rejected a prototype submitted for a sequel. EA later clarified that they consider Mirror's Edge "an important franchise", but otherwise had no further announcements [4] It has been confirmed by Frank Gibeau that Mirror's Edge 2 will be built upon the Frostbite 3 engine, allowing for stunning physics effects and graphics.
