Bad Company 3 and Mirror’s Edge 2 mentioned in various resumes
Battlefield: Bad Company 3 and Mirror’s Edge 2 have both been listed on various LinkedIn profiles indicating DICE is developing a third entry into its shooter series, and ramping up development on the later.
One resume references work on BC3, stating the employee “provided video game prototype, design, and demo feedback on various AAA titles including Battlefield: Bad Company 3, Dead Space 2, Devil May Cry 5, and other unannounced titles” between 2009 and 2011.
As far as DICE’s much-loved, free roaming parkour title is concerned, an ex-EA software engineer claimed in his resume he worked on Mirror’s Edge 2 during July and August 2009. The resume specifically mentions the “wandering of crowd system within the Unreal 3 Engine.”
Another resume notes work on “new gadget and interactive features” for the title, along with leaderboards and a mini-game.
While Mirror’s Edge 2 hasn’t been announced, EA’s Patrick Soderlund has said during E3 2009 it was in the works, and that it was ” just a matter of when that time is and what we do with it. We have a small team on it, and I’m excited about what we do.”
