Almost three years have passed since the original console release of Mirror's Edge. While EA has made it clear that a sequel is in the cards, the publisher has stopped short of making a formal announcement or revealing any specifics.
Well, according to CVG, the Official PlayStation Magazine now has a scoop that should cheer up fans of the free-running action game:
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.
The Frostbite 2 engine, of course, is responsible for the mouth-watering graphics we've seen in the various Battlefield 3 demos. I can already imagine what EA DICE could do by melding the same kind of graphical fidelity with the beautiful art direction from the original Mirror's Edge. Yeah, an official announcement with screenshots can't come soon enough...
