One LinkedIn user, Michael Joseph C., states that he “provided video game prototype, design and demo feedback on various AAA titles including the Battlefield: Bad Company 3, Dead Space 2, Devil May Cry 5 and other unannounced titles”, between 2009 and 2011.
Meanwhile, the profile of an ex-EA Software Engineer states that he worked on Mirror’s Edge 2 between July and August 2009, implementing “the wandering of crowd system within Unreal3 engine”.
Another ex-employee says that he was tasked with implementing “new gadgets and interactive features” into Mirror’s Edge 2, including “leaderboards” and a “mini-game embedded into mirror’s edge game story”.
Neither Battlefield: Bad Company 3 or Mirror’s Edge 2 have yet been officially announced by EA or DICE, although both have long been rumoured to be in development.
Last year, EA Games President Frank Gibeau said that the publisher “[hasn’t] killed Mirror’s Edge” and that the studio was “actively looking at how to bring it back in the right way.”
Gibeau also suggested that the game, whenever it does finally materialise, would run on DICE’s Frostbite 2 engine.
Could we see either of them at next month’s E3? How long is a piece of string?
