We will see in October what Frostbite 2 can actually do when Battlefield 3 releases. However, it seems that people throughout EA are interested in using the Engine for their own products. According to a rumour from OPM, at least.
“The Frostbite 2 engine will pave the way for Mirror’s Edge to make a free-running return,” says the mag.
EA Games Label president Frank Gibeau said back in June: “you’ll see that combination [Frostbite 2 and Mirrors Edge 2] I’m sure”. He also said that they were waiting for a “Big Idea” to bring back the franchise. Could this be what they were waiting for?
We emailed EA, asking whether we would indeed see Mirrors Edge 2 with Frostbite 2. All we got back: “No Comment. We haven’t confirmed anything to date.” As we know, that can mean one of two things.
