Mirrors Edge fell short, EA says

EA DICE’s highly-anticipated first-person title Mirror’s Edge missed commercial and critical targets within Electronic Arts, a key exec has said.

Frank Gibeau, who inherited the presidency of the EA Games label in 2008, said Mirror’s Edge and horror title Dead space each had some degree of success, but they didn’t quite meet our expectations, for sure.”

Unlike Mirror’s Edge, Dead Space turned a profit, Gibeau added.

It made money for us, but didn’t hit expectations. We felt like we had an IP that struck a chord, and one that hit quality, but again it missed multiplayer modes.
