Frostbite 2-based Mirror's Edge coming?

"You'll see that combination, I'm sure."

Electronic Arts executive Frank Gibeau has hinted that we could see a new Mirror's Edge game built with the Frostbite 2 engine in the future.

"We haven't killed Mirror's Edge," he told GameTrailers host Geoff Keighley.

"We're actively looking at how to bring it back in the right way. We love that franchise, the DICE guys really created something special the first time around. You've got to have a big idea to be able to do the next one, and that's what we're working on."

Perhaps that new idea might involve Frostbite 2, the spanky new engine DICE is using for Battlefield 3? Perhaps indeed.

"Mirror's Edge, Frostbite 2 - I'm there," said Keighley.

"You'll see that combination, I'm sure," Gibeau replied.

So much for that report back in February that a Mirror's Edge 2 pitch had been rejected. Even then, EA told us the franchise is "still important" as far as they're concerned.

The original Mirror's Edge was released back in 2008, when parkour was still cool. Why not reminisce about the good old times with our recent retrospective?
