Mirror's Edge 2 uses Battlefield 3 engine: OPM strengthens rumour

One step closer to the much sought-after sequel

Although EA has said a couple of times that the Mirror's Edge franchise will return one day, things look to becoming ever more solid as Official PlayStation Magazine tips the sequel to return on Frostbite 2 with reassuring certainty.


Back in June EA Games boss Frank Gibeau felt comfortable enough to avoid dismissing the notion of Mirror's Edge 2 on DICE's Frostbite 2 engine saying, "You'll see that combination I'm sure."

OPM is now reporting on insider whispers which add more credence to the idea of Faith hop, skip and jumping onto Battlefield 3's stunning engine.

"The Frostbite 2 engine will pave the way for Mirror's Edge to make a free-running return," says the mag, much to our delight.

What exactly that will look like is still uncertain (Faith may not even feature). EA itself has admitted that it needed time to work out the best way to approach a Mirror's Edge sequel, although it sounds as though that work is already under-way.
