Lost in Limbo: Whats Happening With These Hyped Games?

"Announced, applauded, and then accompanied into the ether by silence. When was the last we heard from the new Mirror's Edge and the new Gears of War? What's going on with the Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem crossover? How's Cliff Bleszinsk"

The next Mirror's Edge

Developer: DICE

Rumors of a new Mirror's Edge were already swirling when DICE officially announced the title during EA's 2013 E3 press conference. Announced for the new generation of consoles, this Mirror's Edge would be not a sequel, but a prequel delving into the past of protagonist Faith.

Little is known about content for the new Mirror's Edge. DICE confirmed it will be an open-world action adventure and will focus on first-person combat. In January 2014, Mirror's Edge writer Rhianna Pratchett announced that she was not working on the prequel.

After EA's 2014 E3 press conference, alongside new concept footage for the new Mirror's Edge, DICE senior producer Sara Jansson posted a letter on the official Mirror's Edge website stating the game was in full development. However, the team needed more time and was not ready to show gameplay--or anything else--anytime soon.

The last word: More than six months later, DICE is still quiet on the new Mirror's Edge. A representative for EA told GameSpot to "keep the faith."
