Well, I’ve dreamt of this day. The day that I can finally write a rumor about Mirror’s Edge 2. There were some that said it would never happen. There were some that said I was crazy. The latter was right, but the former was wrong! It is here, friends. It is the day of all days. Mirror’s Edge 2. Let’s talk about it.
Mirror’s Edge 2: Today, Mirror’s Edge 2 appeared on Amazon Germany’s website. I’ve waited almost five years to see something like this. There’s been such a bizarre back and forth of stories claiming that a small team was working on this game, that it’s been cancelled or that it’s well known to be in development. I couldn’t take much more of that pain. It’s relieving to finally see something almost tangible come from it.
Now, this may seem like a complete overreaction to a simple listing on a website. And yes, it may well be; however, Amazon leaks games every now and then, and those leaks usually have some truth to them. The PSP Go leaked on Amazon, the Wii-U’s price was revealed on Amazon and multiple Call of Duty games have been leaked as well. This is huge.
So what can we learn from this posting? Well, we all can look forward to EA’s E3 more than any other company’s show because nothing else matters. The listing is also for Xbox 360, but there’s no way a multiplatform game will come out on only dated tech. I’m sure it will be on Xbox One, PS4 and hopefully PC as well. Also, if you look into the post long enough, you can learn how to say “videogame” in German.
It’s “Videospiel.” Please read that in the most stereotypical Beerfest voice you can muster. It’s much better that way.
Not Mirror’s Edge 2 Rumor: Lame, I know. No one could possibly care about anything else on a day like today. This is possibly time worthy, though. About a month ago EA bought Star Wars rights from Disney, and it seems that there’s some rumors brewing around that now.
Star Wars: Battlefront may live to see the light of day. EA’s Blake Jorgensen said at the Stifel Nicolaus Technology Conference, “The oppurtunity to do a new Battlefront… or some of the other traditional games that were made, is very exciting.” This isn’t any sort of guarantee, but EA acknowledging this fan favorite franchise may mean something.
There were also whispers of Battlefront 3 being somewhere around 90% complete last year, so EA might just be sitting on this until a proper time to release comes around. This is one of the few pieces of the Star Wars franchise I think is worthwhile. It’ll be interesting to see if EA choosing to act on it.
Well, folks, other than a bunch of confusing Xbox One nonsense, this was all this week has to offer. I can’t really express through words how much seeing that Amazon listing of Mirror’s Edge 2 really means to me. Fanboy switch has been flicked on and won’t be shut off for some time. E3 can’t get here soon enough.
