They're making Mirrors Edge 2.

From the Article: Few recent games have had as many requests for a follow-up as Mirror's Edge. If you go by the amount of love professed for it on the internet, the first-person freerunner charmed the vast majority of people who played it. But the 2008 release didn't sell well enough to merit a sequel and it seemed that hopes for a Mirror's Edge 2 have been in vain. Until now.  

Teases have been floated over the last few years and a former EA developer has said that it's "general knowledge" that Mirror's Edge 2 is in development at EA DICE's Stockholm studios. In response to an Eurogamer article about the division, Benjamin Cousins—who's currently at ngmoco but worked on the Battlefield franchise at DICE—tweeted the following:    

Cousins' comment jibes with what we here at Kotaku have heard recently. In 2009, EA CEO John Riccitiello told Stephen Totilo that prospects for a sequel were at a crossroads and then DICE exec Karl Magnus told Totilo that fans would have to "wait and see what the future holds." Reports that a Mirror's Edge sequel would use the Frostbite 2 engine that powers Battlefield 3 have surfaced and when I interviewed EA Games president Frank Gibeau in September, he said that the company is very interested in what fans want in a Mirror's Edge sequel.  

So it's seeming more like a question of when rather than if at this point. And, probably, also a question of current-gen or next-gen. Get your messenger bags ready, folks.

I really enjoyed Mirrors Edge when it first came out and frankly Im quite interested in what if anything Dice will do to revamp the gameplay. Thoughts?
