Mirror’s Edge is getting a reboot over at DICE, and EA Labels president Frank Gibeau has stated that thanks to the new next gen technology, they will be able to take the reboot to the next level. Fans were excited when EA finally revealed the next Mirror’s Edge for next gen systems, but I didn’t think they were going to be starting from the beginning.
Speaking with IGN, Gibeau said, “I think the time is right now because we’ve got a creative idea. We have a great story planned. With all the gen 4 technology, we can re-create that magic of running across rooftops and experiencing a city from a different point of view through the character of Faith.
“Performance, animation, all those technologies that are now in gen 4, that extra computing power is going to be able to take Mirror’s Edge to the next level. We’ve always been thinking about it, but a bunch of things came together – the right story, the right leadership team, and the right capabilities from this new hardware – that got us to commit and go for it.”
Mirror’s Edge 2 doesn’t have a release date, and they didn’t show us any real footage of it yet, so it’s probably still a ways out.
