Publish date:

EA's Mirror's Edge studio DICE says it knows how to reach a broader audience with a potential sequel to the 2008 title.

The developer told Spong a follow-up to the first-person action game wouldn't be a waste of time, despite DICE stalling its development earlier this year.

I think it's something that people are ready to get into again,”said DICE producer Patrick Liu.

"We see that there's a huge fan following, it's almost like a cult. And we know what strengths and weaknesses we had in that game. If we were to release a new game, we'd know what to improve and how to reach a broader audience. So I definitely think there's a market there.”

DICE previously stated that sales of Mirror's Edge were not as good as expected”.

However, during E3 this year EA Games president Frank Gibeau said the publisher is actively looking at how to bring [the franchise] back in the right way”.
