As if the firm hasn’t said this enough already, a sequel to Mirror’s Edge is “on the list” of things to do at EA, according to labels president Frank Gibeau. The reason it’s taking so long to get to market, let alone me announced, has to do more with “how and when” the series will be brought back. “We have nothing to announce,” said Gibeau in the latest issue of GameInformer. “We love Faith. We love the property. It’s really about how and when do you bring it back? It’s on the list. It’s just about looking at what teams are available, who’s got the right quality approach to it, and who understands it.” Thanks, Videogamer.
