Riccitiello: Mirror's Edge "Deserves A Sequel"

Mirror's Edge

According to Electronic Arts' CEO John Riccitiello, first-person free-running action game Mirror's Edge deserves a sequel.

"We're still working through things like how to best deal with Mirror's Edge 2," Riccitiello told Kotaku. "There are some things we learned about that [first] game. It was, I think, a massively innovative product. To be honest with you, I think it's a game that deserves to come back."

Riccitiello said a potential Mirror's Edge 2 could go in two different directions.

"You could say: This thing needs to be more traditional. It's first-person game. There's a lot of successful FPS products out there that do really well. We could move in that direction... Or [you could say]: This was never about guns. It was about its stark originality. Maybe we can back away from some of those [older] things… and emphasize the smooth play and puzzles and move it toward, if you will, a Portal. "

So, what do you guys think about a Mirror's Edge sequel -- would you want to see a traditional shooter set in the Mirror's Edge world, or a game that emphasizes some of the more original aspects of the game? Personally, I'd be more interested in playing a game that focuses on puzzles and free-running/climbing with a heavy dose of stealth. In fact, if it were up to me, I would axe all combat from the game and make players totally dependent on speed and brains.
