Mirror’s Edge got a reboot announcement at E3 last month after years of fans asking what DICE was planning to do with the IP. EA Game’s executive vice president Patrick Söderlund has shed new light on the matter in an interview.
Speaking with GameReactor, Söderlund explained, “It’s taken this long because we wanted to get to the right concept and the right idea. And Sara Jansson who is producer on it, when she pitched her idea to me and Karl-Magnus, the GM for DICE, I was frankly blown away. I’m like “Finally, you’ve got it!”
“And when you hear something like that… She pitched an idea that frankly could only be built on gen 4, is a stunning concept, and when she came to us we knew we had it. And yes, we’ve been testing ideas and we’ve been prototyping stuff, and I’m glad that we waited to get the right idea.”
EA’s Frank Gibeau has also said that next-gen tech will really help take Mirrors Edge to the next level. Find out what he means here.
